Mark Winterbottom carries the #1 into 2016 after finally breaking through for his maiden championship victory last season.

Returning in Bottle-O colours, Winterbottom is looking to defend his title this year as he enters his 11th consecutive year with the team now known as Prodrive Racing Australia. 

Last year's fairytale finish followed what was a year of highs and lows in 2014, which saw the 2013 Bathurst champion finish in the top three of the championship standings.

In a high flying start to 2014, Frosty compiled four wins in New Zealand, Darwin and Winton, collecting 12 podium finishes overall and the Jason Richards Trophy while in New Zealand.

The feisty driving style he adopted in 2013 reappeared towards the end of the season where he claimed two podium finishes at Phillip Island.

Frosty is one of the most consistent drivers in the field and has finished in the top five in the championship every year since joining Prodrive Racing.

He gained Ford support in 2001 when he made the jump from karts to single-seater racing in the Victorian Formula Ford series.

After finishing runner-up in the national series two years later he made the move to V8 Supercars where in a Falcon he claimed the Development Series title at his first attempt.

A move to the main game the following year saw him impress and despite being in modest surroundings he did enough to attract the attention of Ford’s factory team.

He switched to PRA for 2006 where he stunned on debut to finish third overall against very experienced opposition and has been a frontrunner ever since.
