Chaz Mostert has claimed victory and the Repco Supercars Championship lead in the process, in wet conditions at Sydney Motorsport Park.

The now two time Bathurst Winner was able to hold off today’s pole-sitter Brodie Kostecki in the dying laps of the race Chaz’s six-second lead was reset back to zero by a late safety car.

With only four laps to go the hard-charging Kostecki and Anton De Pasquale tried to bring it to Walkinshaw Andretti United, however, Chaz Mostert was just too quick in the conditions.

Additionally, it marked the first time in six years that a non-Triple Eight or Dick Johnson Racing driver leads the championship.

“I never thought I’d have an orange number on my car,” said Mostert, who finished third on Saturday.
“Driving up and seeing this [championship leader] board is pretty cool.
“It’s cool to tick that box off the list… I don’t know where to start. What a race, what a weekend for us.
“Super stoked for the whole team.”

Saturday winner Shane van Gisbergen finished sixth despite starting 21st, spinning early, suffering a slow stop and at one stage was even lapped.

The season will resume at the NED Whisky Tasmania SuperSprint on the 26-27 March.
