  • Two-time Bathurst winner will be joined by rookie Ryan Wood in 2024

Chaz Mostert will remain with Walkinshaw Andretti United beyond 2023 after signing a long-term deal, the Ford team has announced.

In a statement, WAU didn’t specify the length of the deal, which it labelled “long-term” — all but confirming WAU will become Mostert’s longest home in Supercars.

Mostert’s 2024 campaign will be his fifth with WAU, having joined the Clayton squad from Tickford Racing in 2020. The 31-year-old competed for Tickford for six seasons between 2014 and 2019.

Mostert will be joined by Ryan Wood for the 2024 season, with the Kiwi teen replacing Matt Stone Racing-bound Nick Percat.

“I’m pumped to be continuing on here at WAU – this team is like family, so I couldn’t picture being anywhere else,” said Mostert, whose deal was announced at the Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500.

“It wasn’t a hard decision that’s for sure, it all came together prety quickly. Everyone from our team to our partners and all the WAU fans have been so amazing, so I’m really excited to continue that journey together.

“We came here with a few big goals in mind, and we haven’t achieved all of them just yet, so I’m as motivated as day one here to do that.


“A huge thanks to everyone involved in the Team and our partners for the faith they put in me, representing them is really an honour so I can’t wait to see what we can continue to achieve together in the years to come.”

The 21-time race winner has claimed six podiums in 2023, and lies fifth in the standings with two rounds remaining. Mostert was second fastest in Friday practice at Surfers Paradise.

WAU Team Principal Bruce Stewart said Mostert’s contract extension was a “no-brainer”, with the two-time Bathurst winner set to play a key role in Wood’s development.

The team last won the teams’ championship under the Holden Racing Team banner in 2009, with its last drivers’ title coming courtesy of Mark Skaife in 2002.

“We are delighted to continue our journey with Chaz long into the future together,” Stewart said. 

"He has been a great fit for our team both on and off-track, so it was a no-brainer really. Ever since day one he’s played an amazing role in our team, what you see is what you get with Chaz.

“We’ve shared some incredible moments together so far, but we are certainly not any less focussed or driven when we first started together.

“We’ve got a big weekend here on the Gold Coast and then Adelaide to finish 2023 in the best possible way, but I’m also really looking forward to seeing the role Chaz plays in helping guide and mentor Ryan Wood through his rookie year.”
