Ford Ranger Raptor debuts in Supercars recovery trim

The big new Ford Ranger Raptor has made its debut in racetrack form today, ahead of this weekend's Sandown 500 event in Victoria. Of course, when we say racetrack, we don't mean it'll be competing. The Ranger Raptor is no Superutes contender (at least not yet), but rather the Supercars series' official new recovery vehicle.
