Born and bred in Albury, Matt Chahda continues to push towards making his Repco Supercars Championship debut via the Dunlop Super2 Series.
The second-generation racer is driving for his family-owned and run team.
In 2022, Chahda will also make his Great Race debut alongside Super2 rival Jaylyn Robotham.
Winning his very first competitive race in karting in 2007, Chahda cut his teeth in the V8 Touring Car Series for ex-Super2 Series cars, finishing fourth in the 2014 series and following in father Amin’s wheel tracks.
Amin was champion of the AMRC-run V8 Touring Car Challenge in the mid 2000s and raced AUSCARs on the Calder Park Thunderdome.
Chahda made his Super2 Series debut in Adelaide in 2015 driving a Commodore for Rsport Race Engineering but parted ways with the team soon after, instead electing to run under his family team banner to run an ex-Scott McLaughlin, Fujitsu SBR Falcon from the Winton round onwards.
He continued to race this car through the 2016 season, where he hit the headlines for involvement in a multi-car, first corner accident at Sandown.
Chahda aimed to progress into Supercars Championship in 2017 but wasn’t granted a Super Licence, so he returned to his family-operated Super2 Series team.
Chahda enjoyed his best season yet in 2019 aboard an ex-DJR Team Penske Ford Falcon FG X, claiming his first top 10 round finish at Bathurst and was on track to claim a career-best seventh in the final race at Newcastle until he was taken out in the closing stages.
