Bathurst race car up for auction

Bathurst race car up for auction

Imagine owning a supercar that could take the checkered flag at Bathurst.

Walkinshaw Andretti United’s Chassis 25 currently being driven in the Supercars series by Chaz Mostert is up for auction this weekend on the eve of the Bathurst 1000 great race.

“To own a Walkinshaw Andretti United built and prepared car is a rare opportunity, but to own Chaz Mostert’s first with our team, and then have the opportunity to watch it compete in the Great Race a few days later is very special,” Walkinshaw Andretti United team principal Bruce Stewart said.

The chassis will be delivered to the winning bidder at the completion of the 2021 Supercars season, with the selection of any livery appearing on the car during the 2020/2021 season and in the meantime a chance to enjoy the experience as a Supercar owner.

“The value of Scott Pye’s former WAU chassis doubled in a matter of days, after being sold at auction on the eve of its podium finish at Bathurst 2018,” Llloyds Auctions chief operations officer Lee Hames said.

“This is an amazing opportunity for motorsport fans to own a piece of racing history and experience the team environment behind the scenes of the 2021 Supercars season.”

The new owner would be entitled to special benefits including hot laps, GA and Paddock access and signed panels, Mr Hames said.
