In what’s been described by someone as a “coup”, Walkinshaw Andretti United has apparently signed demolition derby expert Taz Douglas to join 2019 “Torpedo of the Year” winner Chaz Mostert for the 2020 season.
Team Principal Ryan Walkinshaw said the organisation was looking forward to watching the chaos that Taz and Chaz will surely bring to every race.
“For sure they both bring an unconventional approach to their racecraft. But we like that. Maybe between the two of them they can punt everyone else off and get a few wins here and there” he explained.
In what is surely going to be a bumper enduro season for panelbeaters everywhere, Walkinshaw have also confirmed that Chaz and Taz will be joined by legendary gap finder Pastor Maldonado and equally legendary reverse parker Renee Gracie for the Pirtek Enduro Cup.
“We feel Renee really rounds out our team. Sure we have people that can crash first lap and take out their team mate, but being able to put it in backwards at speed is something Renee excels at. She really nailed it at Bathurst” said Walkinshaw.
