Team 18 is thrilled to announce that veteran Supercar driver, Mark Winterbottom has joined East Coast Car Rentals as a shuttle bus driver. This exciting move will not only benefit East Coast Car Rentals but also assist Winterbottom in maintaining his race fitness and lighting reflexes for the remainder of the season.

Fresh off the back of a podium 2nd place at the Australian Grand Prix, Winterbottom brings and untamed confidence and wealth of experience, speed and skill to his new role. His commitment to excellence and precision on the track will now be applied to ensuring that East Coast Car Rentals’ customers enjoy a swift and comfortable journey from the airport to their branch locations.

“We are delighted to welcome Mark to the East Coast Car Rentals team,” said Rohan Marx, Managing Director at East Coast Car Rentals. “His expertise behind the wheel and dedication to performance make him the perfect fit for our shuttle bus service. We believe that his involvement will not only enhance the experience for our customers but also provide Mark with the opportunity to stay race-ready in between events.

“Our team have been working through the night, dialling in the shuttle’s suspension to Mark’s liking and have bolted on a new set of Mark’s favourite Dunlop treads for his maiden trip in shuttle number 18,” Marx continued.

Winterbottom’s role as a shuttle bus driver will see him transporting customers from the airport to East Coast Car Rentals’ branches, ensuring they arrive safely and efficiently. His addition to the team reflects East Coast Car Rentals’ commitment to providing exceptional service and a memorable experience for their customers.

“I’m excited to be joining East Coast Car Rentals and taking on this new challenge,” said Mark Winterbottom. “Driving is my passion, whether it’s on the track or off, and I look forward to bringing that same passion to my role as a shuttle bus driver. With Cam Waters off racing on the dirt and Chaz and Dave Reynolds racing GT cars, It’s a great opportunity for me to stay sharp and focused while also setting a record pace for customers getting into their rental cars.”.”

Winterbottom will begin his role as a shuttle bus driver with East Coast Car Rentals on the 1st of April, and customers can look forward to experiencing his exceptional driving skills firsthand.
