Supercars: Mostert tops both practice sessions on opening day of 2021

Holden’s Chaz Mostert has pipped his former Ford teammate Cameron Waters in a tight second practice at the Repco Mt Panorama 500, to make it a perfect start for the 2014 Bathurst 1000 winner to 2021.

Mostert who was quickest this morning in the opening practice session of the year, was at home at Mount Panorama on Friday, first rising to the top with 27 minutes remaining with a 2:05.103s.

With four minutes left on the clock Waters hit the front in his #6 Monster Energy Mustang with a 2:04.792s.

Chaz Mostert fastest after Fridays practice for the Repco MT Panorama 500. Event 1 of the Repco Supercars Championship, Bathurst, Australia. 26-28 Feb 2021

However, not content with his pace, Mostert lowered the marker once more to put 0.011s on his old stablemate.

Mostert and Waters are two of this year’s Championship favorites and other contenders Shane van Gisbergen (8th in P2 today), Anton De Pasquale (9th), Will Davison (11th) and Jamie Whincup (16th) will be among those looking to improve in tomorrow morning’s qualifying.

Following practice today fans on the mountain got a sneak peek of the $20 million BT-19 Repco Brabham F1 car, that will lead the Repco Supercars Championship field out for both of this weekend’s races.

Cars will return to the track at 9:05am AEDT on Saturday for ARMOR ALL Qualifying for Race 1 of the new season.

This weekend’s event will be broadcast live on Foxtel and the Seven Network, and will be streamed on Kayo.
