Team 18 has lifted the covers off Mark Winterbottom’s #18 IRWIN Racing Holden ZB Commodore.
Winterbottom enters his fourth season with the team, racing once again with IRWIN as the naming-rights sponsor of the entry.
Winterbottom finished 10th in the championship standings in 2021, aiming to give Team 18 its first win in Supercars in 2022.
“I love the livery and the fact that IRWIN and Bunnings have been with us for our whole journey with Charlie and Team 18,” said Winterbottom.
“You look at the car with Fuchs on the white bonnet, I love it, and we’re proud that our sponsors have continued to support and believe in us and it’s our job now to deliver
“I’ve been at the top before, I know what it takes, but I want to win races, podiums and championships with Charlie and that’s why I signed up to this team and until we do that I’m not satisfied.
“I’m working hard behind the scenes in the gym and our preparation has been fantastic. My determination is higher than ever, I’m fit, I’m hungry and I want to win it.
“We’re very lucky here at Team 18, our personnel are the envy of pit lane and a few of them have tried to be poached, so it’s a complement that we have good people.
“On my car we have the same people, I’ve got the same engineer in Manuel Sanchez for the last couple of years and we have gelled really well. We have Rory Jackermis who has come back on as my data engineer after we lost him during the COVID period, and two number-one mechanics in Josh and Kieron, so we’re well equipped for the year ahead.
“The cars have had a big revamp over Christmas, more than probably most teams have done to their cars, and our personnel is great, so if we get everything right we can win races and that’s what we need to deliver, no excuses.”
