Chaz Mostert is feeling refreshed and ready for a new page in his career starting at the Superloop Adelaide 500.
The latest in a long line of manufacturer heroes to cross the divide from one badge to another, Mostert’s high profile move from Ford’s Tickford Racing to Walkinshaw Andretti United will be complete on February 20 when he takes the wheel of the Mobil 1 Holden Commodore in opening practice.
The 27-year-old will be supported by right-hand-man Adam De Borre, who will continue as Mostert’s engineer at the Clayton squad.
It continues a partnership between the pair that started back in 2013. The pair have worked together for all-bar-one season.
“To be able to stay with Chaz for the start of our seventh season together is fantastic and I hope all the experience gained over the past six seasons will help us guide the car to the front,” De Borre said.
Speaking in Sydney for the launch of the championship season, which gets underway at the Superloop Adelaide 500 from February 20-23, Mostert was quick to highlight the importance of the partnership continuing.
“A driver and an engineer are like a married couple,” Mostert said.
“If it’s not quite syncing, you’re never going to get the performance on track.
“It’s so awesome to keep Adam and the combination going together, I’m really looking forward to the year ahead.”
Mostert has been quick to pump-up the synergies forming at his new team after spending six years operating out of Tickford’s Broadmeadows stable.
“It’s obviously a big change in the off-season going from Ford to Holden,” Mostert said.
“I’m really looking forward to seeing what the differences are this year.
“For me, I’m really refreshed... It’ll be good to get out there and see what we can do.”
