Chaz had the elbows out and head down on his way to fifth, including a late scrap with Brown and Heimgartner which Chaz won.

For Nick, he spent most of the race in a five-car freight train which was tough work for him, and made it a long race.

After finding himself off the road and five-seconds back from the field on lap 1, Jayden did a great job to not only catch the field, but move forward.

The highlight for this one was Nick’s charge through the field after a really tough qualifying session. He stopped early, but had some really strong car pace, especially on older tyres which allowed him to make the strategy work.

Chaz was stuck under the rear bar of Will Davison for the last 30 laps, which hurt his chances of moving forward.

Jayden rounded out a really strong debut weekend, not looking out of place at all amongst the main game drivers.

Chaz Mostert

“Pretty adventurous weekend really. Had a reasonable qualifying car which gave us some solid results. It was a big turnaround from Perth that’s for sure, but it’s no secret we need to find a little bit more to be up the front constantly.

“It was great to be back at Winton, don’t think I’ve ever seen so many fans here, looking forward to Darwin now.”

Nick Percat

“Obviously a tough weekend, qualifying didn’t go to plan in any session really, but there was a positive at the end going from 27th to 15th with a relatively speedy race car which was good.

“Looking forward to Darwin now, it’s a track I love, we will keep working really hard to get some better results and turn it around.”

Jayden Ojeda

“Happy with the weekend overall, I think we showed some good speed, and I had a heap of fun.

“We learnt a lot this weekend which will only help as we prepare for Darwin now, a huge thank you to WAU and all our partners for making this possible.”
