V8's: Mostert geared for Bathurst!

Prodrive Racing (Australia)'s Chaz Mostert holds no reservations as he prepares to return to Mount Panorama following 2015's qualifying crash.

Mostert, who recorded a top five finish at the Sandown 500, is confident for his return after winning the Bathurst 6hour in a BMW earlier in the year alongside friend Nathan Morcom.

"I'm super pumped to get to Bathurst. Obviously after last year I'm going to try and redeem myself for this year,” Chaz said. “We've had pretty good top five form for the last couple of rounds so we want to try and keep that going at Bathurst, keep bringing this car along and keep trying to keep the momentum rolling."

"You never know. You've got to be there for the last 40 laps at Bathurst but this year I'd just like to try and get to the race. We'll see how we go. It's pretty exciting to be in Supercheap Auto colours this year obviously with Supercheap Auto backing the event so hopefully it'll give us a bit of a leg up on the competition."

Mostert's co-driver Steve Owen will be a calm and knowledgeable influence for the Supercheap Auto Racing pilot as he prepares for his 18th Bathurst start.

"I think we had a tough time at Sandown and still nearly finished on the podium so I think that's a pretty good indication that the speed's there but we just need a few things to go our way and we should be alright,” Owen added.

"Chaz showed at Clipsal this year that the crash didn’t affect him in any way, shape or form so I know his speed is still there and that he's keener than anyone to make a mends for last year and hopefully we can do it. I’ve finished second at Bathurst a couple of times now so we're not going there to finish second; we're going there to win. I think we've got the right ingredients to get the job done."
