A year of highs and lows for Mark Winterbottom saw the 2013 Bathurst champion finish in the top three of the championship standings in 2014.

In a high flying start to the year Frosty compiled four wins in New Zealand, Darwin and Winton, collecting 12 podium finishes overall and the Jason Richards Trophy while in New Zealand.

The feisty driving style he adopted in 2013 reappeared towards the end of the season where he claimed two podium finishes at Phillip Island. 

2015 sees Frosty enter his tenth season with Prodrive Racing with his sights firmly set on a maiden championship win.

Frosty is one of the most consistent drivers in the field and has finished in the top five in the championship every year since joining Prodrive Racing.

He gained Ford support in 2001 when he made the jump from karts to single-seater racing in the Victorian Formula Ford series.

After finishing runner-up in the national series two years later he made the move to V8 Supercars where in a Falcon he claimed the Development Series title at his first attempt. 

After finishing runner-up in the national series two years later he made the move to V8 Supercars where in a Falcon he claimed the Development Series title at his first attempt. 

A move to the main game the following year saw him impress and despite being in modest surroundings he did enough to attract the attention of Ford’s factory team.

He switched to PRA for 2006 where he stunned on debut to finish third overall against very experienced opposition and has been a frontrunner ever since.
