Mostert reacts to 2024 Mustang reveal

WALKINSHAW Andretti United has released the second of its 2024 Repco Supercars Championship liveries, this time for superstar Chaz Mostert.

The two-time Bathurst 1000 winner will again be behind the wheel of a #25 Mobil 1 Optus Mustang.

A big year is in store, with Mostert having last year been Ford’s top-ranked driver in the championship, and parity hoped to be less of a factor following off-season wind tunnel testing in the United States.

The 31-year-old isn’t getting carried away just yet, instead focusing on the revised appearance of his Gen3 machine ahead of a Winton pre-season test next week (February 7).

“The Mobil 1 Optus Racing #25 Mustang looks awesome, we’ve thrown a bit more colour on it this year, but it’s nice and clean which I love,” he said.

“Getting to drive the Mobil 1 Optus Racing Ford Performance Mustang, and representing all the incredible partners we have in this team is something I don’t take for granted, it’s a family here, and that extends to the support we get from all of them, so I’m looking forward to a big 2024 together.

“We’ve had a great off-season, the guys and girls have worked around the clock to get us ready for what’s ahead, so I can’t wait to get stuck into the year, starting with the first test day and of course heading back to the Mountain.”

Having already shown off the #2 Mobil 1 Truck Assist entry of rookie Ryan Wood, WAU CEO Bruce Stewart hailed it “a great day for our team”.

“Ensuring the synergy between both cars was a priority for us, we are one team, one family and these liveries embody that,” said Stewart.

“As mentioned earlier today, the support from our amazing partners has enabled us to be where we are today. To have Mobil 1 back for their 31st year is incredible, but to also represent Optus who we have such a powerful relationship with, we are very lucky to be connected to such a great team.

“The hard work doesn’t stop here, the season really kicks into gear for us now, we are eagerly anticipating Round 1.

“This should be a very exciting year for the team, we have a big few weeks ahead of us so it’s eyes forward.”

Round 1, the Thrifty Bathurst 500, will take place across February 23-25.
