Mostert confirmed for BMW Bathurst 12Hr return
BMW Motorsport has confirmed Chaz Mostert will rejoin the iconic Schnitzer squad for an assault on the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.
The Tickford Racing Supercars star has been recalled to drive the Schnitzer BMW M6 GT3 which he will share with factory drivers Martin Tomczyk and Augusto Farfus.
Mostert impressed the Schnitzer squad at this year’s Bathurst 12 Hour when he scored pole position, although the race ended in disappointment after being forced to retire in the afternoon.
The 2014 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 winner is set for a busy start to 2019 having been selected by BMW to contest the Daytona 24 Hours, held a week prior to the Bathurst 12 Hour (January 31 – February 3).
Mostert is set to drive a Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing team BMW M8 GTE at Daytona alongside former IndyCar and Formula 1 star Alex Zanardi, Jesse Krohn and John Edwards.
In addition to the Schnitzer entry at Bathurst, BMW will represented by German outfit Walkenhorst Motorsport that will field an M6 GT3 for Christian Krognes, Nick Catsburg and Mikkel Jensen.
The squad made their Bathurst 12 Hour debut in 2017 which ultimately ended prematurely when a crash in practice saw them fail to start the race.
