Chaz Mostert is back behind the wheel of his Supercheap Auto Ford at Winton today after a tight turnaround from his maiden GT appearance in Europe at the weekend.
Tickford has all five of its cars on track – including its Super2 entry – as it works to recover from a difficult start to the season.
The team has just one podium to its name in 2018, scored by Mark Winterbottom at Barbagallo, while 11th-placed Mostert is its highest placed driver in the standings.
Mostert headed to France following the most recent Supercars event at Winton, making his Blancpain Endurance Series debut at Paul Ricard thanks to an invitation from BMW.
It followed Mostert’s strong showings aboard M6 GT3s in the last two Bathurst 12 Hours, the first of which led to a handful of Asian Le Mans Series outings with the marque in 2017.
Mostert was placed with ROWE Racing for the Paul Ricard 1000, sharing with BMW regulars Jens Klingmann and Tom Blomqvist.
Awesome weekend, after been turned around at the start of the race and running 32nd we finished the race 6th, but with a miscommunication on the full course yellow restart we got a 30-second penalty 😩 Finishing p11 pretty good recovery and not a bad debut!
