Chaz Mostert extends Walkinshaw Andretti United stay
Chaz Mostert has agreed a ‘multi-year’ deal to stay with Walkinshaw Andretti United, which will come into force for the 2022 Supercars Championship season.
Mostert joined the Holden team ahead of the 2020 season and currently sits third in the standings, having secured his first win in WAU colours at Symmons Plains.
“I’m super pumped to sign on with Walkinshaw Andretti United on a multi-year deal, and repay the faith that Ryan, Martine, Michael, Zak and the entire WAU team showed in me,” he said.
“It’s been pretty incredible to see what we’ve been able to achieve together in a short amount of time, under some pretty challenging circumstances, so I’m excited for the future, and have no doubt that will continue.
“It was a no-brainer for me to re-sign that’s for sure. This Team is incredible, full of amazing people and it is very family orientated. Why would I leave my family?”
Team co-owner Ryan Walkinshaw insisted that keeping Mostert onboard was key for the team going forwards.
“We are delighted to continue our journey with Chaz,” he said. ”He has been instrumental in our development and the path we are on as a team, we definitely have big things we still want to achieve together, which was always the goal when we started.
“He is without-doubt one of the leading drivers in the category, and we have worked really hard as a collective to put ourselves in the fight. It’s not just on the track we are seeing results though, he is a major part of our family, and fits into our culture perfectly.
“We remain completely focussed on the 2021 season, but it’s nice to know our future with Chaz is now secured, and I can’t wait to see what we can continue to achieve.”
