LMS and Winterbottom agree to head in different directions
Larkham Motor Sport (LMS) will release Mark Winterbottom from his V8 Supercar Championship Series contract with the Gold Coast based team at the end of this season.
Winterbottom will contest the final two rounds of the year in his Orrcon Racing Falcon, including this weekend’s Ferodo Triple Challenge, the penultimate round of the Championship at Symmons Plains in Tasmania.
LMS owner Mark Larkham says that the departure of Winterbottom is a very amicable one.
”Constructive discussions between LMS and Mark (Winterbottom) throughout the last week have resulted in an amicable departure that was mutually agreed and in the best interest of both parties moving forward,” said Larkham.
”There is nothing more to add as there is simply nothing more to this outcome.
“We wish Mark well with his future.”
The announcement ends a two-year relationship between LMS and Winterbottom.
