With the success of the Group C XD’s, Ford gave Wayne and Bob McWilliam more leeway when developing the XE Group C race cars. Wayne designed a new front bar for the XE and continued to modify rear wings to handle the high top speeds of the XE Group C (a problem never truly solved - the birdbath wing acted as a sail to slow down and stabalise the car at the request of CAMS). The XE Falcon was one of Wayne’s favourite designs he took part in, so before he passed away in 2012 he built a Phase 6 series II (under the HO name as originally intended) to leave behind for his family and fans. The historic Phase 6 from HO is still available (with name plate).
