Chaz Mostert has highlighted the importance of men’s health' by 'growing a mo to save a bro’ during Movember.

Men are encouraged by men’s health charity Movember to grow moustaches to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health initiatives, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s mental health.

The 29-year-old was demoted from second to the rear of the grid after being excluded from qualifying due to a technical breach.  

After claiming his first podium in Sydney since 2017, Mostert took the opportunity to highlight his fundraising initiative.

"I have this witchetty grub on my lip so everyone can get on my social accounts and please donate to Movember for a good cause," Mostert said in the post-race press conference.

"This thing is killing me. I mean, I’m in a lot of pain, so please help and donate. Thank you."

Mostert has joined the pledge for the second consecutive year, encouraging fans to support the charity through donations to his ‘Mo Space’ page from November 1.

"#MozzieMo is coming in hot for the rest of the Supercars Calendar! Help me raise some money for Men’s Health," Mostert wrote to fans on his social accounts.

"I think these are all great causes to raise awareness for anything we all can do to help we should."
