Another new Supercar was born today with Prodrive Australia unveiling their brand new chassis for Mark Winterbottom in the 2017 Supercar Championship.
Winterbottom conducted a successful shakedown of the new car at Winton Raceway prior to the season's opening test day at Sydney Motorsport Park so the Bottle-O Racing Team also took the opportunity to launch its brand new livery for 2017 at the car's first outing.
Alongside his new livery, Winterbottom reintroduced the number five to The Bottle-O Ford as he prepares to take on a new season.
"You won't be able to miss me out there this year!" Winterbottom said of his 2017 livery. "The car looks great with the green wheels in particular. It really is a mean, green machine this year. I'm definitely hungry to go out there and put wins on the board. I certainly didn't meet my expectations last year and that's something that needs to change in 2017.”
“We need to be at the top of our game if we want to be able to challenge the guys at the front and I think we have the potential, we just need to work that little bit harder. The guys and girls back at the workshop want it too.”
“The changes they've all been working on at the workshop over the break look really positive so I'm looking forward to giving this new tyre a try and seeing how things go at the test day. I'm proud to be representing so many great brands again this year, particularly long-term supporters in The Bottle-O. We got a couple of wins for them last year but a few more this year would be good."
