- The Bottle-O Racing Team and Monster Energy Racing
Established in December 2002 after UK giant Prodrive bought Glenn Seton Racing, this four-Ford squad becomes known as Tickford Racing in 2018.
The team won back-to-back Bathurst 1000s under the Ford Performance Racing banner and then its maiden drivers’ title with Mark Winterbottom in 2015 as Prodrive Racing Australia.
Winterbottom enters the new season looking to bounce back from a tough two years since winning the championship that included a winless 2017 campaign.
Cameron Waters, meanwhile, enjoyed a breakthrough 2017 in his second season as a full-time driver.
The Dunlop Super2 Series winner took his maiden race win at Sandown and two other late-season podiums on his way to a career-best sixth.
Tickford Racing’s other two Falcons will be driven by Chaz Mostert and Richie Stanaway in 2018.
