Chaz Mostert has confirmed that he will see out the full season of the TCR Australia series with Melbourne Performance Centre, giving the championship leader the chance to clinch the title.
Mostert’s initial deal to race an Audi RS3 LMS in the series this year was on a round-by-round basis, starting at the season opener at Symmons Plains in January.
Since then, Mostert has gone on to win at Philip Island and Bathurst, standing on the top step five times in the nine races held so far.
The 29-year-old confirmed to AutoAction.com.au that he would now see out the season, giving him the opportunity to defend his series lead.
Mostert currently leads the standings on 344 points, with Aaron Cameron his nearest challenger on 281 points.
“It hasn’t been announced yet,” Mostert told Auto Action, “but we were pretty happy with it after Bathurst and I believe I am going to complete the whole season, so I am pretty pumped about that.”
Mostert is combining his campaign in TCR Australia with his regular Supercars commitments with Walkinshaw Andretti United, where he claimed his first win of the season at Symmons Plains last weekend, along with racing in the GT World Challenge Australia in an Audi R8 LMS.
