Supercars wreck costs Tickford $250k

It's been costly but Tickford Racing have got a replacement Supercar ready for Ford star Chaz Mostert ahead of this weekend's Sandown 500.

Mostert wrote off his Supercheap Auto Mustang during Saturday's shootout at the Gold Coast 600, sidelining him and co-driver James Moffat for both races at the event.

With the $250,000 chassis an unrepairable wreck, Tickford have spent the past fortnight getting a new car ready for the final endurance event of the year.

Team boss Tim Edwards said a spare Mustang used as a wildcard by Thomas Randle at The Bend earlier this year had been converted into Mostert's car for the remainder of 2019.
