De Borre has rejoined the Prodrive Racing Australia outfit, after spending last year in Queensland working for DJR Team Penske.

He will slot right back in alongside Mostert, who he engineered between the middle of 2013 and the end of the 2015 season, reuniting a pair that won the Bathurst 1000 back in 2014.

"It's really exciting to be teaming up with Adam again,” said Mostert.

“He has been my engineer for most of my big career moments so to continue this journey with him is awesome.

"Brad [Wischusen] was awesome to work with last year and we developed a really good relationship but having worked with Adam for so many years, it'll be easy to pick up where we left off.

“I really want to win races this year, that's my goal, and I hope that we can be quick from the get go."

De Borre’s re-signing comes as part of a complete engineering reshuffle at PRA. Wischusen has been switched over to Cam Waters’s #6 car, while Brendan Hogan replaces the outgoing Jason Gary on Mark Winterbottom’s #5 entry. Sam Potter, who spent last year as a data engineer for the main game cars and race engineer for Jack Le Brocq’s Super 2 entry, has been promoted to a main game race engineer role working with Jason Bright.

"We had some big changes to make at the end of last year but it gave us an opportunity put our best foot forward for this year," said PRA team boss Tim Edwards.

"We chose to put Jason [Bright] with Sam this year because we all know that he, as a driver, is one of the best engineering minds in the field so in Sam's first year they'll be able to bounce off each other and try different ideas.

"I'm confident in the ability of each of our engineers and I think with this structure we'll be up there again this year. Brad and Brendan are well and truly integrated with the team now and with a decent amount of time under their belts respectively, so they know what they've got to work with and what we can do to improve.

"It's great to have Adam back. We are confident with his relationship with the team and Chaz of course so the transition back to the team will be easy and we'll hit the ground running there."

In the Super2 Series reigning champion Garry Jacobson will continue to work with David Paterson, while Sam Scaffidi will engineer new signing Josh Kean’s car.
