Chaz Mostert extends contract with Prodrive through 2019

The young V8 Supercars star isn't going anywhere, re-signing with Prodrive for the next four seasons.

Reigning Bathurst 1000 winner Chaz Mostert has committed to Prodrive Racing Australia until the end of 2019.

Mostert’s future has been a hot topic up and down pit-lane this season. Despite Prodrive having announced the taking up of a two-year option, the young gun has been linked to various rivals squads, most recently DJR Team Penske.

However, both driver and team have now agreed to a brand new contract, which will see Mostert stay at PRA until at least the conclusion of the 2019 season.

Repaying the faith

“I am super-pumped to keep the consistency going with the team and this new deal is me repaying the faith they’ve shown in me over the last few years,” Mostert said.

“I’ve had a great relationship with everyone at Prodrive Racing since I joined them back in the Dunlop Series days. It is the people that make the team so great.

“There are so many people that have been there for a long time and have a lot of experience, so to continue with them is important.

“Obviously our overall package is performing very well so I want to keep the form going for years to come. However, my immediate focus is on continuing our great year – we want the team title and the driver title so hopefully as a team we can get both.”

Team 'very happy' to have Mostert back

PRA boss Tim Edwards is equally delighted with the new deal.

“Everyone at the team is very happy to have Chaz staying with us for at least the next few years as he’s grown up with us over the last four years and we all want to continue our successful partnership,” he said.

“We had him for another couple of years still under his previous agreement but both parties agreed we were committed for the long-term and this new two-plus-two year deal works well for everyone involved.

“With Mark [Winterbottom] signed through until at least 2018 we have a secure driver line-up with two of the best out there.”
