Welcome to the Official Site of Mark Winterbottom
Great to be back on the podium with P2 today. Great results for the team with a 1-2 finish!!
Qualified 4th for Supercars Race 6, 250km at 1.50pm. After 18 tyres blew on cars yesterday the Commission has mandated 19psi tyre pressure and a camber setting range.
Weird day, running top 3 in conservation mode the entire race as I was being told about tyres blowing. In my second stop I got a 15sec penalty for crossing the blend line in pit lane which normally has a cone marking it, but not here. You just can't see when you follow a car in the lane. I know the rule so I'm dirty on myself but I feel the penalty was harsh. We didn't have a tyre blow but they had blisters so wasn't far off. Thankful no one got hurt today, that isn't the way we want to go racing.
P6 in Practice 2 on a very Grey day at Phillip Island. Looking forward to tuning it up for Qualifying at 12.45pm tomorrow, followed by Race 5 - 250km.
There is always a use for bananas, love this healthy banana cake for me as an athlete and for the kids lunch boxes. Did you know we consume 5,000,000 bananas a day in Australia?" #naturesenergysnack #healthysnack #banananation #vasc
