With Jamie Whincup and Mark Winterbottom sharing the panel on Inside Supercars tomorrow night, we ask, which is your favourite racing rivalry?

The conflict between the Holden hero and Ford favourite date back to their karting days, where the two raced wheel to wheel, and continue toin 2015.

Who could forget their epic Bathurst battle in 2013, separated by just 0.47sec as Winterbottom held the lead to reward his team with its first ever Mount Panorama win?

While Winterbottom walked away with the Peter Brock Trophy, Whincup again earned the Championship trophy at the end of the season, holding out Winterbottom and equaling the greats - a feat he has already improved on. Throw in clashes at the front of the field at Sandown in 2012, New Zealand 2013, and a war of wordswhich saw Whincup call Winterbottom a clown at the Gold Coastlater that year-these two have had their fair share of scraps.

Or - speaking of Peter Brock - was it his rivalry with Allan Moffat that is top of the list?

Bathurst 1972 sparked the start of what began as a great Holden versus Ford competition - before the pair raced for the same Holden team in the 1980s.

Mention Bathurst and one battle always comes to mind - while they may be civil in front of the TV cameras this year, Greg Murphy and Marcos Ambrose's on-track confrontation is one that will not be forgotten by the fans.

Last but not least, another pair that now work side by side, but were definitely on different sides of the fence in their racing days - Mark Skaife and Russell Ingall.

Perhaps the most shocking of all was when the two racers came together in the heat of the Championship finale and Skaife speared off the road, crashing his HRT Commodore.

Jumping out of the car, he stayed on the edge of the track to shake his fists at 'the Enforcer' as he drove past. Ingall swerved toward Skaife, and after the incident was scrutinised, both drivers were penalised.

Many of our sport's greats have been involved in memorable, fiery battles - which of these four rivalries is your favourite?
