PRODRIVE RACING AUSTRALIA – SYDNEY 500 PREVIEW
Prodrive Racing (Australia) is confident for an improvement in its street-circuit form at the closing round of the 2016 Supercars Championship as the team looks to add further wins to its 2016 tally. In his final event as the current Supercars Champion, Mark Winterbottom insists he is as hungry as ever to claim race wins and re-claim the title in 2017 as he prepares to attack the challenging Homebush track for the last time. Off the back of a successful rookie test day at Winton, Cameron Waters will put his best foot forward for his first outing at Sydney Olympic Park in the Supercars category. Having claimed his Dunlop Series title at the event last year, Waters cites the challenging circuit as a favourite. Chaz Mostert will savour his final outing on the street circuit, a track he has enjoyed over the past few years, and the final event for the 2016 Supercars season. With a three-month break looming for the category, Mostert says every driver will be aiming for the top step of the podium. The Sydney Olympic Park event marks a full year in a Supercar for Kiwi driver Chris Pither, who is confident data obtained from last year’s event will aid in in tracking his progress over the past year.
Chaz Mostert – #55 Supercheap Auto PRA Ford:
“It’s a fantastic time to be a part of the Championship and to be in the series to race at Homebush for the last time. It’s a very exciting track. Big kerbs, and the car has to work very well there so we’ll see how we go. It’s a good event to build momentum for next year and everyone guns for a good result there because it’s the last time we get to race these things until March next year. We’ll go racing with all guns blazing and I want to win it, for sure.”
