Sponsorship switch for Winterbottom in 2023

MARK Winterbottom will carry new major backing into the Gen3 era, racing a DEWALT Camaro in the 2023 Repco Supercars Championship.

‘Frosty’ had donned the colours of sister Stanley Black & Decker brand Irwin Tools since joining Team 18 at the start of 2019.

DEWALT meanwhile has more so been associated with Winterbottom’s long-time teammate Scott Pye, featuring as naming rights partner on his #20 entry for two seasons before stepping back this year.

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

“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.”

Winterbottom welcomed the change.

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

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

Team 18 gave fans an insight into its Gen3 program at a recent open day, ahead of Round 1 next March in Newcastle.

“Our preparation for Gen3 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,” Winterbottom continued.

“It was good for us to work our way into the top 10 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.”
