Tickford Racing stop Chaz Mostert from racing in TCR Australia

Tickford Racing has stopped Chaz Mostert from joining the inaugural season of the TCR Australia series in a Hyundai team, according to Speedcafe.

“He has a contract with Tickford Racing and that decision always lies with the team,” said Tim Edwards, head of Tickford Racing to Speedcafe.com.

Mostert has other commitments outside of his Supercars Championship drive for Tickford Racing, recently driving for BMW in the Bathurst 12 Hours.

“In the past we have allowed Chaz to do quite a lot of other racing and providing there is no conflict of brands. Hyundai play in the same space as Ford in Australia with Focuses and i30s. It is a team decision and not one from Supercars,” said Edwards.

The 26-year-old took part in the TCR Australia championship launch at Sydney Motorsport Park last year, driving a Hyundai for HMO Customer Racing.

“I can’t really talk about it at this stage, I can’t do it, sorry. For whatever reasons are, I can’t,” said Mostert.
