BIOGRAPHY

CHAZ MOSTERT

A star in karting, Chaz Mostert dominated the Australian Formula Ford Championship at the age of 18. After claiming a podium and pole position on debut in the Dunlop Series, there was no doubt Chaz would be a Front Runner in the Supercars Championship for many years to come.

2018

Chaz began 2018 in the best shape of his life but fought against car set-up for the majority of the year.

The highlight of the year for Chaz was winning the Gold Coast 600 Race with James Moffat as his co-driver, as well as finishing P3 at Ipswich and P3 in Auckland.

Chaz finished 6th in the 2018 Supercars Championship despite issues with his car and is looking forward to taking on 2019 in the new Mustang.

Chaz also raced overseas for BMW Motorsport at the Fuji Four Hour, Macau GT World Cup, Petit LeMans 10 Hour and at the 6 Hours of Buriram Race which he won with Jesse Krohn and Jun-San Chen.

2017

Chaz began 2017 primed and prepared with full support from Tickford Racing (formerly Prodrive Racing Team), and Bathurst-winning engineer Adam De Borre.

Chaz took out his first Race Win since 2015 in Race 6 at the Phillip Island 500. As his confidence grew, Chaz started moving closer to his elusive first Championship, running in the Top 5 consistently with a handful of podium positions. Unfortunately, a tough penalty at the Auckland SuperSprint dashed his hopes of the top position.

Chaz finished 5th in the 2018 Supercars Championship and won the 2018 Pirtek Endurance Cup with Steve Owen.

2016

Chaz claimed 5 Supercars podium finishes and 5 pole positions in 2016, one of which was on his return from his horrific crash at Bathurst in 2015.

Driving in the Bathurst 6 Hour, Chaz took out first place in one of the biggest production car races in the Country.

2015

2015 was Chaz’s best year to date, winning five races, claiming 14 podium finishes and a total of 10 pole positions; taking out the Armor All Pole Position Award for the 2015 season.

Disaster struck for Chaz at the Bathurst 1000, when he crashed into the wall in Qualifying breaking his wrist and femur as the car crumpled down the hill.

Chaz was unable to race for the rest of the season due to his injuries.

2014

2014 marked Chaz’s first full season in the Supercars Championship, where he raised the elusive Peter Brock Trophy at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000. Chaz started from last place, and took the race lead on the final lap to win alongside his co-driver Paul Morris.

EARLY DAYS

A star in karting, Chaz dominated the 2010 Australian Formula Ford Championship field, winning 10 of the last 12 races before claiming the series title that year.

In 2011, Chaz debuted in the Dunlop Series with Miles Racing before joining Prodrive Racing after a stellar wet weather drive at Queensland Raceway. Chaz claimed a podium and pole position on his debut with the factory Ford team.

In 2012, Chaz competed in the Dunlop Series full-time with Prodrive Racing, winning 2 rounds and finishing 3rd in the series, with only penalty points setting him back from becoming crowned champion.

Chaz drove a Falcon for MW Motorsport in the 2013 Dunlop Series, winning the opening round at Adelaide. Chaz got the call-up to move out of DVS and take over the #12 Falcon at Dick Johnson Racing, where he saw immediate success winning Race 24 at Ipswich.
