Mostert Tickford Racing Falcon uncovered
Tickford Racing has shown off Chaz Mostert’s Supercheap Auto Racing Falcon ahead of this week’s Sydney Motorsport Park test.
The livery is an evolution of the familiar yellow, black, red and green colours the #55 has displayed in recent seasons.
Mostert and his new Falcon has starred in the latest episode of Mighty Car Mods, a popular Australian automotive show on Youtube.
The show sees Mostert take part in a series of challenges against an array of special Mighty Car Mods creations.
After leading Tickford racing’s charge last season with three race wins, Mostert is optimistic he will be able to challenge for a maiden Supercars title this year.
He will jump behind the wheel of the car on Friday at the official pre-season test at Sydney Motorsport Park.
“I’m certainly looking forward to getting the season underway,” said Mostert.
“We had some good runs in 2017 and were in the championship hunt most of the year.
“If we can keep the pace we had, especially in the second half of 2017, there’s no reason we can’t contend for the championship again.
“We had a few races last year that really hurt us in the championship.
“It was only an off race here or there, but in this championship you can’t be out of the top ten and compete for the title.
“Really you’ve always got to be in the top five, which is a big ask, but the team have been working hard and we’ll be ready to take the Supercheap Auto machine to the front this year.”
The opening round of the Supercars Championship is due to take place at the Adelaide 500 from March 1-4.
