Supercheap Auto Racing driver Chaz Mostert claimed his third consecutive podium with a second placed finish in what can onoy be described as a wild opening race at Sydney Motorsport Park on Saturday afternoon.

Mostert qualified in the back end of the top 10, however a combination of a strong late race tyre life and avoiding a race-changing incident after the safety car restart saw him claim another strong result.

It was a strong result for Chaz and he was thrilled to be on the podium again for the third-straight race…

“It is great to get on the podium again and spray some champagne with the team,” he said. “Our race didn't really kick off until the restart which was mayhem.”

“We always struggle here with our safety car restarts and the overlapping today and the setting sun made it pretty tricky. There were seven or eight cars that no doubt had a bit of contact on the restart and while it was pretty crazy and it worked out okay for us.”

“The tyre life was good late in the race but we struggled with a bit of turn today so we need to look into that and see what we can do tomorrow.”
