Walkinshaw Andretti United is delighted to announce that Chaz Mostert, one of the stars of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, will join the Team beginning in 2020.
27-year-old Mostert, who hails from Browns Plains in Queensland, joins Walkinshaw Andretti United on a multi-year deal that will see him drive one of the Team’s two Holden ZB Commodores.
Since his Supercars debut in 2013, Mostert has 204 Supercars race starts to his name, which have included 13 wins, 53 podium finishes, and 20 pole positions.
His impressive résumé also includes a 2014 Bathurst 1000 win and a 2017 Enduro Cup win.
He will get the opportunity to get behind the wheel of his new Holden ZB Supercar for the first time in the new year, with the Supercars official test day scheduled for February 18 at The Bend Motorsport Park.
Mostert’s teammate in the Walkinshaw Andretti United stable will be announced in due course.
“I’m super excited to be joining the Walkinshaw Andretti United family, it’s going to be full of new challenges and for me and at this stage of my career I’m excited for some change.
“I’ve spent most of my Supercar career on one side of the fence and really enjoyed that, but now I’m excited to jump over to the other side and hopefully build something special.
“I’m looking forward to getting to know the WAU Team and their fanbase, my fans that have followed me in my journey so far are all incredible and I hope they continue to support me next year and beyond, no matter the car I drive.
