Team 18 has announced that it has signed a multi-year contract extension with Mark Winterbottom.
The deal will ensure the former Supercars champion and Bathurst winner will remain with the team for the next two seasons, into the Gen3 era.
Winterbottom first joined Team 18 in 2019, and currently sits 12th in the standings.
Winterbottom will remain teammates with Scott Pye in 2023, with Team 18 to continue their driver line-up for the fourth consecutive season.
“I really enjoy racing at Team 18, I really love working with Charlie and racing for him so it’s fantastic,” said Winterbottom.
“I think the future looks really bright for us. The car next year and the program and how it’s going to happen should really suit Team 18, so yeah, I have signed there to try to win. It’s going to be a great couple of years and hopefully successful, that’s the plan.
“I’m really excited about Gen3 but at the same time I feel like I’m driving well, I feel like the team is going in the right direction. I race to win – I don’t race to just make up numbers and Charlie doesn’t either. Gen3 is a big opportunity for Team 18, it’s massive, but at the same time we have tried our backsides even this year to try to finish the year off strong with what we have got.
“I’m motivated, fit, hungry and I have won before so I know what it takes and I feel like Team 18 is on that path to success and I don’t want to miss out on that. I have put a lot of effort in to get there and I think the future looks really strong.”
