Supercars star Chaz Mostert has added another coveted trophy to his collection, clinching a class victory in the Rolex 24 at Daytona.

Mostert paired with John Edwards, Jesse Krohn and Augusto Farfus for the BMW Team RLL squad.

The quartet steered their #24 BMW M8 GTE to the top honours in the GTLM class.

Mostert took to social media to express his delight.

“Currently I am so overwhelmed, I can’t believe we just won the Rolex 24 in GTLM,” he wrote.

“What an Australian Day well spent.”

Mostert, 27, adds the Daytona crown to his 2014 Bathurst 1000 triumph.

He will now return to Australia to compete in the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour next weekend.

Scott Dixon, Ryan Briscoe, Kamui Kobayashi and Renger van der Zande combined for the outright victory.

Mostert’s Supercars peer Shane van Gisbergen placed 12th in his class and 31st overall in a Lexus.
