Mark Winterbottom will carry a milestone number aboard his Team 18 DEWALT Camaro at Mount Panorama this weekend.

Winterbottom and Team 18 will mark DEWALT's centenary with the #100 on Winterbottom’s Supercar for the Thrifty Bathurst 500.

DEWALT — which has been a primary backer with Team 18 — was first established in 1924, and has grown to become the world’s largest power tool company.

The DEWALT 100th anniversary logo will also feature on the roof of Winterbottom's Camaro and Team 18’s transporter.

“I'm really proud to run the number 100 for the season opener at Bathurst. It's obviously a very special occasion for DEWALT,” said Winterbottom, who is set to revert to his standard #18 at the following round in Melbourne.

"100 years s a great achievement and DEWALT has supported me now for quite a few years. They produce a great product and they only put their name to other great products. 

"I hope that I can deliver on track and do them proud because 100 years is special and for me to represent them and run it is a proud moment. 

“Bring on Bathurst, we're looking for results and hopefully this DEWALT car with 100 on it brings me luck and we get the result. I can't wait to get out there. 

"Testing went well, but it's also the unknown because you go into Bathurst, it's always ‘have we done enough?’, ‘where are we at?’, ‘what are our competitors doing?’, we don't know until we hit the track, so there’s a bit of nerves.

“Even after all these years you still get nervous, but we're in good shape. I think we've done a great job, we’ve recruited really well, we’ve prepared really well. So we'll find out when we hit the track. Are we good enough? Time will tell.”

Winterbottom will start his sixth season with Team 18, which welcomes David Reynolds, new Team Principal Adrian Burgess, Technical Director Geoff Slater and Race Engineer Som Sharma.

Reynolds returns for a second weekend at Mount Panorama, having finished in eighth place as a factory driver with Mercedes-AMG for GruppeM Racing at the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour.

Winterbottom and Reynolds will hit the track at Mount Panorama on Friday. Tickets for the event are on sale now.
