CHAZ Mostert has accepted Walkinshaw Andretti United co-owner Zak Brown’s Bathurst-winning prize offer, but with one cheeky condition.
A steer of that car had been suggested by Allan’s son and runner-up finisher James Moffat in the post-race press conference on Sunday as a possible reward for the victory.
Mostert has now returned serve to Brown on the social media platform, writing: “Sounds like a plan @ZBrownCEO (Zak Brown) but I want to sweeten the deal.
“I also want my great friend @J_Moffat (James Moffat) to have a steer ‘cause I reckon driving an amazing piece of history that your dad had made would be a unreal moment.”
Mostert had joked about bringing Moffat to any potential Monza test drive in the Bathurst presser, to which Moffat responded: “Yeah, I’ll wipe the windscreen for you.”
The duo drove together in the Supercars endurance races, including Bathurst, in 2018 and ’19 at Tickford Racing, finishing fourth in 2018.

Moffat finished second in Sunday’s Great Race, adding to the second place he achieved in the 2014 Bathurst 1000 also won by Mostert.
“We’ve finished second twice in this bloody race, so it’s good, but not good,” Moffat surmised on Sunday.
“I feel like everybody at Tickford did an amazing job, the pit stops were flawless, and my buddy sitting next to me [Cam Waters] drove the absolute wheels off it and didn’t put a wheel wrong.
“Second was probably the maximum we could get out of the car, we just couldn’t find that sweet spot with the car the whole weekend, but Cam summed it up pretty well: bittersweet.”
