Mostert Ends Ford’s Winless Streak

PERTH, Australia — Chaz Mostert ended Ford’s winless streak in Repco Supercars Championship competition in Saturday’s first of two weekend races in the Bosch Power Tools Perth SuperSprint.

The books will show a pole-to-win performance for Mostert, but it was anything but for the two-time Bathurst winner, who helped Walkinshaw Andretti United to its first win as a Ford team.

Mostert lost the lead to rookie teammate Ryan Wood  off the line, and braved a bold strategy call by WAU to ultimately lead home championship leader Will Brown.

Brown, having taken on four tires at his stop, was forced to overtake Wood, who was denied a maiden Supercars podium by Cam Waters following a last-lap overtake.

With Broc Feeney fifth, Brown extended his lead from 71 to 103 points heading into Sunday.

WAU, meanwhile, powered from fifth to second in the teams’ standings, with Mostert 189 points behind Brown, who also scored fastest lap bonus points.

For Mostert, it was career victory No. 22, and his first since the 2022 Adelaide 500.

“I’ve wanted this one for quite some time,” a relieved Mostert said post-race.

“It’s very special to do it here in Perth, special to do it for the team at Walkinshaw Andretti United, first one for Ford with the team, first one for the year for Ford as well which is pretty exciting.”
