Follow Mark Winterbottom

Mark Winterbottom is out to reclaim the #1 after a challenging run since breaking through for his maiden title in 2015.

That championship remains the only won by a Ford driver since James Courtney’s 2010 triumph, and Winterbottom laid the foundations with nine victories and 17 podiums.

The 2013 Bathurst 1000 winner alongside Steven Richards, Winterbottom is entering his 13th season with the team now known as Tickford Racing.

‘Frosty’ is one of the most consistent drivers in the field and has finished in the top six in the championship every year since joining what was then Ford Performance Racing in 2006.

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 in 2002 he made the move to Supercars, winning the Dunlop Super2 Series in a Stone Brothers Racing AU Falcon as a rookie.

In a 2004 move up to the main game with Larkham Motor Sport, Winterbottom impressed despite modest surroundings, joining the factory Ford team after two seasons and remaining a frontrunner ever since.
