The FG X is based on the 2015 Ford Falcon XR8, that competed in the 2015 International V8 Supercars Championship under DJR Team Penske.
#17 was driven by both Marcos Ambrose and Scott Pye as part of DJR Team Penske's scaling back of the team to a single car for the season.
Marcos Ambrose, a two-time V8 Supercar champion for 2003 and 2004, drove for the first event in the championship but stepped down prior to the second event. Scott Pye took on the role, after originally being listed as the team's endurance co-driver, and remained the lead driver with Marcos Ambrose returning as the team's endurance co-driver.
At the conclusion of the championship;
DJR Team Penske placed 13th in the team standings.
Scott Pye placed 17th and Marcos Ambrose placed 43rd in the drivers' standings.
2015 has been an astounding year for driver Mark “Frosty” Winterbottom and the #5 Ford Falcon. The Pepsi Max crew have already chalked up eight wins and four podiums this season. Only twice have they finished outside the top ten. With a huge lead in the points, it looks like 2015 could be Frosty’s big year and his first V8 Supercars championship.
2015 #17 Xbox Racing Ford Falcon FG X:
Two-time champion and V8 Supercar legend Marcos Ambrose made a much-heralded return to the Aussie road-racing series this year in the #17 Ford Falcon. Ambrose had spent the last few years in NASCAR and the return to Aussie V8s was challenging. Look for Ambrose and the #17, backed by experience of DJR Team Penske, in the remaining enduro races of 2015.
