Welcome to the Official Site of Mark Winterbottom
Qualified 17th for Race 14, we aren’t quick enough. We changed the car and didn’t get it right. Hopefully we have a better race car and can move forward! #FrostyFan #IRWINRacing #VASC
Suiting up for the final day at Winton. We made quite a few changes over night and the track is going to be super quick this morning - I think the lap record will fall! We’ll have to do a really good time to get into the 10 to jump to Q2. Practice at 9:20am, quali at 11:10am and Race 14 (200kms) kicks off at 1:45pm! #FrostyFan #IRWINRacing #VASC
P9 for Race 13. Reasonable race, but really struggled with car balance. To get a top 10 result considering our recent form is good. I think we could have got amongst them if we had a bit more rear grip, so we will look at it over night and try to come out stronger tomorrow. #FrostyFan #IRWINRacing
P6 in Quali for Race 13! Good session for us, we took a risk with slicks at the end of Q2 and got enough to bump in to Q3. Quali 3 was all about getting the right lap at the right time and I’m happy to be on the 3rd row. We still don’t have a read on a fully dry or fully wet track, so we are all just surviving in tricky conditions. Race 13 starts at 3:50PM AEST #FrostyFan #IRWINRacing #VASC
P10 in Practice 1 and we’ll go straight to Q2 for quali. Tough practice session with changing conditions, but good to get in the 10 at the end. I think the car is in a reasonable window but weather is unpredictable between now and qualifying. It’s nice to have a car that is making sense and we can build from there!
Weird to not be on track today, but we have a big weekend coming up! Richo will take control of the IRWIN Racing machine for 30 minutes tomorrow morning. We then have a 40 min practice session, 3 part qualifying and a 40 lap race. Sunday is practice (30 mins), 3 part qualifying and a 67 lap race. Looking forward to it! #FrostyFan #IRWINRacing #VASC
