Chaz Mostert has proven that race winning form in V8 Supercars means little in the world of speedway, with a maiden Sprintcar hit-out ending in embarrassing circumstances.
Mostert joined Ford Performance Racing team-mate David Reynolds in testing a Kendrick Motorsport Sprintcar at Western Australia’s Northam Speedway following the weekend’s V8 Supercars event at Barbagallo.
Spurred on by his endurance co-driver and part-time Sprintcar racer Paul Morris, Mostert’s spell saw the 21-year-old tag the outside wall, damaging the car’s right-rear corner.
“I thought I’d push it pretty hard out there, I didn’t want to be called a wuss or anything like that,” he said.
“I had a bit of a moment in one of the corners and found the wall.
“It was a bit of fun. Hopefully I can walk away holding my head high and with some cheap parts we’ll get the thing fixed!”
