He also made history in Sandown on the Saturday, becoming the first driver to score bonus points after registering the fastest lap in Race 3.
Mostert is equal 21st on the all-time winners’ list, having scored 13 career victories between 2013 and 2019.
1) Race 24, Ipswich 2013: Rookie sensation at QR
Mostert made his main game debut for Dick Johnson Racing midway through the 2013 season, and hit the top step at Queensland Raceway later in the year.
The then 21-year-old led home the factory Ford duo of Will Davison and Mark Winterbottom to stamp his mark on the main game.
2) Race 16, Perth 2014: Perth perfection
In his first full season in factory Ford colours, Mostert drove from fourth to win at Wanneroo.
Under cloudy skies, Mostert won out in a battle of tyre strategy to defeat Craig Lowndes and teammate Winterbottom.
3) Race 30, Bathurst 2014: The greatest race of all
From 25th to the lead on the final lap, much has already been written and said about Mostert and Paul Morris’ epic Bathurst win in 2014.
After being disqualified in qualifying, Mostert and Morris had it all to do on race day, with the latter finding the barriers at Griffin’s Bend.
The #6 fought its way through, with Mostert famously passing Whincup, who was short on fuel, on the final lap.
4) Race 10, Winton 2015: Winton winner
From pole to victory, Mostert was a force at Winton as he scored his first win of 2015.
Mostert dominated the processional race, leading Winterbottom in a factory Ford one-two.
5) Race 13, Darwin 2015: Hidden Valley heroics
The race itself was chaotic, with a number of key names coming together.
Not that it fazed Mostert, who led another Prodrive one-two with Winterbottom in arrears.
6) Race 20, Ipswich 2015: Pole to victory
Mostert’s third win of 2015 came in a brilliant wire-to-wire victory at Queensland Raceway.
The pole king of 2015, Mostert converted his eighth pole of the year into victory.
7) Race 21, Sydney 2015: Scintillating Sydney performance
Mostert out-gunned Winterbottom from the front row of the grid to take his first win at Sydney Motorsport Park.
The two Pepsi Max Falcons ran side-by-side through the Turn 1 sweeper before Mostert pulled away and drove to victory by 1.6s.
8) Race 23, Sydney 2015: Two from three
Mostert scored his second win in as many days with a brilliant drive in the wet at Sydney Motorsport Park.
The weekend finale featured two Safety Cars, with Mostert closing the gap to series leader Winterbottom to 174 points.
9) Race 6, Phillip Island 2017: Shredding it on the Island
Mostert ended his two-year wait for victory with a brilliant win at Phillip Island.
It was his first win since his Bathurst accident in 2015, when he suffered a litany of injuries.
10) Race 16, Ipswich 2017: Epic Ipswich defence
Mostert survived an eight lap assault from Scott McLaughlin to score his third win at Queensland Raceway.
McLaughlin failed to displace Mostert after a late Safety Car following a spate of blown tyres.
11) Race 21, Gold Coast 2017: A super Surfers comeback
Mostert had to fight back to take a maiden Surfers Paradise win following an early incident for co-driver Steve Owen.
Owen was turned by Whincup’s co-driver Paul Dumbrell at the first chicane, with Mostert defying the rain to clinch a brilliant victory.
12) Race 26, Gold Coast 2018: Back to back on the Gold Coast
12 months later, Mostert returned with James Moffat to seal Tickford’s first win in a year.
In a dominant performance, Mostert crossed the line nearly 10 seconds ahead of his closest rival.
13) Race 5, Albert Park 2019: Making the most of misfortune
Starting seventh, Mostert won at Albert Park following a sighting lap incident between McLaughlin and Cameron Waters.
The victory, which remains his most recent to date, also helped Mostert go on to clinch the Larry Perkins Trophy, having accumulated the most points across the weekend.
Mostert will continue his 2021 campaign at the Beaurepaires Tasmania SuperSprint across April 17-18. Tickets are on sale now.
The event will be broadcast live on Foxtel and will be streamed on Kayo.
