Chaz Mostert confirms entry in upcoming Bathurst 12 Hour
Mostert one of three drivers confirmed in GT4 entry
Supercars star formed Method Motorsport late last year
Method Motorsport has locked in their first trio of drivers for their upcoming Repco Bathurst 12 Hour campaign – with team co-owner Chaz Mostert locked in.
The first of two McLaren Artura GT4s, the #25, will be driven by Mostert, young Porsche rising star Marcos Flack and newcomer Jesse Bryan.
Australia’s International Enduro will serve as the competitive debut for the team, founded late last year by Mostert and Guy McEntyre, while they have also locked in a full-season campaign in the new GT4 Australia series.
Mostert’s Bathurst track record speaks for itself, with his CV including two Repco Bathurst 1000 victories and two Allan Simonsen Pole Awards in the 12 Hour.
Despite having several options for drives in outright GT3 machinery, Mostert elected instead to drive for his own team in the GT4 class.
The Walkinshaw Andretti United star was the first in 12 Hour history to win two of the prestigious Allan Simonsen Pole Awards, claiming his first in 2018 with BMW before repeating in 2022 aboard an Audi R8.
Teenager Flack commenced karting aged five and has progressed through the ranks of European open wheel racing, including British F4 and Formula 3.
More recently he has stepped into the Porsche pathway in Australia, a podium finisher in Porsche Sprint Challenge competition prior to making his Carrera Cup debut in the closing stages of the 2023 season.
Bathurst rookie Bryan joins the team with a host of experience behind the wheel of European machinery, including those from Porsche and BMW.
He has also contested the famed Goodwood Festival of Speed driving a Nissan R32 GTR.
Method Motorsport Team Principal Guy McEntyre said he was excited to see the driving squad come together for Australia’s International enduro.
“I am keen to see the diversity in age come together to share their expertise and give it their all at our first event of the season,” he said.
“The team put in a big effort last year and it is good to be now weeks away from going racing and see it all come together. The driver launch of our second car is next then we pack the transporter and head to the Mountain.”
The drivers of the sister car will be confirmed soon.
