Mostert bringing engineer to Walkinshaw

Having worked with Mostert for six of the last seven Supercars seasons, it was widely expected that De Borre would follow the star driver to WAU.

That’s now been confirmed, co-team principal Mathew Nilsson certain the move will help Mostert acclimatize to new surroundings.

“It’s wonderful to have Adam join the engineering group here at Walkinshaw Andretti United,” said Nilsson.

"He has a fantastic pedigree in motorsport, and will certainly add to the experience of the group as we look to continue our progression.

“Having that stable relationship with Chaz is also critical. There will be a lot of new elements for Chaz to adjust to early on in the season, so to have that familiarity between the two of them is a huge bonus, and a formula that is proven.”
