- IRWIN Racing
New faces, new colours and a new chassis – a revamped Team 18 tackles the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship in 2019.
Under the IRWIN Racing banner, new recruit Mark Winterbottom will drive a fresh Triple Eight-built ZB Commodore engineered by Phil Keed.
Charlie Schwerkolt established Team 18 as a standalone operation in 2016, after time within the Ford Performance Racing and Walkinshaw Racing umbrellas.
Its first campaign with a Triple Eight-built Commodore was interrupted by injuries Lee Holdsworth sustained in a crash at Hidden Valley, which wrote off its original chassis.
Holdsworth and the outfit split at the end of a frustrating 2018, and Winterbottom arrives amid a period of change.
