Chaz Mostert (born 10 April 1992) is an Australian professional racing driver competing in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship. He currently drives the No. 55 Ford Mustang for Tickford Racing. Mostert was the winner of the 2014 Bathurst 1000 and has also previously won the 2010 Australian Formula Ford Championship.
Mostert progressed into Formula Ford in 2008. He finished 11th in the 2008 Australian Formula Ford Championship, fourth in 2009 and then won the 2010 Australian Formula Ford Championship with a record of most race wins in a season.
In 2010 Chaz Mostert got the chance to drive a Miles Racing Falcon at Bathurst in the Fujitsu V8 Supercar Series where he exceeded expectations, leading to Chaz being signed by Miles Racing for the 2011 Season. Again, he performed strongly for the team, particularly in wet conditions. Ford Performance Racing sign him for the next round at Sandown to drive the team's first development series car, an FG Falcon. Mostert scored a pole position on debut for the team and performed well for the remainder of the season.
2012 saw Mostert race with Ford Performance Racing once again, heading into the first round at Clipsal 500 with a great car underneath him, which helped him get pole and clean sweep the weekend with 2 race wins. On 1 December 2012 Mostert was awarded an Honorary commission as a Lieutenant in the Royal Australian Navy. He was presented with his commission by the Chief of Navy Vice Admiral Raymond Griggs.
Mostert ran one round in the Development Series in 2013 before being moved up into the Championship Series. He drove car No. 12 for Dick Johnson Racing, with Ford Performance Racing providing technical support. On 28 July 2013, Mostert won his first Championship Series race at the 2013 Coates Hire Ipswich 360.
In 2014, he drove for Ford Performance Racing under the Pepsi Max Crew Ford FG Falcon previously driven by Will Davison in the 2013 Championship. Adam DeBorre remains his engineering, transferring back to Ford Performance Racing from Dick Johnson Racing. Mostert won the 2014 Bathurst 1000 with co-driver Paul Morris, after starting at the back of the grid, the lowest ever starting position to go on to win the Bathurst 1000.
On 9 October 2015, during the qualifying session for the 2015 Bathurst 1000, he was involved in a horrific crash leaving him with a broken leg and a broken wrist, ruling him out for the remainder of the season. Before the crash, he was second in the championship, behind team-mate Mark Winterbottom.
In 2017, Chaz Mostert and co-driver Steve Owen won the first Enduro Cup for Ford, with one win at the Gold Coast 600.
