Mostert signs long-term WAU extension

WALKINSHAW Andretti United has locked in its ace for the foreseeable future, trumpeting a contract extension for Chaz Mostert.

Mostert was already committed to WAU for 2024, when rookie Ryan Wood will step up from Super2 to take the reins of Car #2 which is being vacated by Nick Percat.

Now, WAU has ensured Mostert does not become part of another potentially intriguing silly season next year, announcing a new “long-term deal” without specifying an expiration date.

The 31-year-old joined the Clayton squad at the start of 2020 and has chalked up eight race wins since.

“I’m pumped to be continuing on here at WAU – this team is like family, so I couldn’t picture being anywhere else,” he said.

“It wasn’t a hard decision that’s for sure, it all came together pretty quickly. Everyone from our team to our partners and all the WAU fans have been so amazing, so I’m really excited to continue that journey together.

“We came here with a few big goals in mind, and we haven’t achieved all of them just yet, so I’m as motivated as day one here to do that.

“A huge thanks to everyone involved in the team and our partners for the faith they put in me, representing them is really an honour so I can’t wait to see what we can continue to achieve together in the years to come.”

WAU team principal Bruce Stewart described the agreement as a “no-brainer”.

“We are delighted to continue our journey with Chaz long into the future together,” said Stewart.

“He has been a great fit for our team both on and off-track, so it was a no-brainer really. Ever since day one he’s played an amazing role in our team, what you see is what you get with Chaz.

“We’ve shared some incredible moments together so far, but we are certainly not any less focused or driven when we first started together.

“We’ve got a big weekend here on the Gold Coast and then Adelaide to finish 2023 in the best possible way, but I’m also really looking forward to seeing the role Chaz plays in helping guide and mentor Ryan Wood through his rookie year.”

Drivers either known or believed to be off-contract at the end of 2024 include but are not limited to Anton De Pasquale, Will Davison, Cam Waters, Richie Stanaway, Brodie Kostecki, Jack Le Brocq and Mark Winterbottom.
