CHAZ Mostert has unveiled his 2018 Supercheap Auto Supercars livery with a little help from the boys at Mighty Car Mods.
The 2014 Bathurst 1000-winner took his new-look Ford to Sydney Dragway for a series of head-to-head drag races against some of the machines created by the YouTube series’ hosts Marty Mulholland and Blair ‘Moog’ Joscelyne.
Mostert pitted his No. 55 Falcon against six of the duo’s creations, including an ethanol-consuming Subaru shopping wagon with a Tribeca engine, a Ford Focus RS the pair worked on in Germany, a Nissan Silvia converted for heavy duty off-roading, and an old Toyota Cresta sleeper capable of doing a quarter mile in under 10 seconds.

“We are not qualified mechanics, so the kind of cars that we build are not your typical race cars,” Moog said.
“Like our off road Nissan Silvia, our tiny turbo Daihatsu Mira from Japan or our Honda powered Mini.”
“They’re all strange cars like a lot of what we build, but this is what excites us the most, and being able to go up against such an icon of motorsport in the form of the Supercheap Auto Supercar was an incredible experience.”

The new look will turn its first laps on a Supercars circuit this Friday in Supercars’ official pre-season test day at Sydney Motorsport Park — right next door to where it was launched.
