Sponsor swap for Winterbottom in 2023

DEWALT takes on naming-rights backing of Mark Winterbottom’s Team 18 entry in 2023.

16 December 2022

DEWALT, a Stanley Black & Decker brand, will become naming-rights partner on Mark Winterbottom’s #18 DEWALT Racing Team 18 Chevrolet Camaro for the 2023 Repco Supercars Championship.

Stanley Black & Decker took on naming-rights support through its IRWIN Tools brand in 2019, switching from IRWIN Tools to DEWALT for 2023.

“It’s great for the team to continue our journey with Stanley Black and Decker in 2023 and going forwards into the Gen3 era of the Supercars Championship,” said Winterbottom.

“I can’t wait to see the new DEWALT Racing Camaro hit the track next year.

“Our preparation for Gen 3 has been ongoing for a while, but it’s really ramped up after the season finished in Adelaide as new parts arrive on the door every day.

“It was good for us to work our way into the top ten of the championship by the end of the year, but Gen3 is a full reset for the championship and a whole new approach to driving a Supercar.

“We’ll be working as hard as we can to capitalise on the fresh start in the new year and be a contender in 2023.”

Team 18 owner Charlie Schwerkolt added: “The partnership between Stanley Black & Decker and Team 18 is the combination of two teams who share the same drive for innovation and performance.

“We are incredibly proud to continue our partnership with a leading global organisation in Stanley Black & Decker, ever since their first involvement with Sidchrome in 2018.

“We are looking forward to continuing to work together as we enter an exciting new phase for the Supercars Championship next year.”
