Mark Winterbottom has unveiled the new side windows of his Orrcon Steel Ford Performance Racing Falcon ahead of next weekend’s Sucrogen Townsville 400.

As part of the promotion around Winterbottom’s role in the feature film Cars 2, his race car will change from #5 to #95, replicating the number of Cars 2 leading character Lightening McQueen.

Winterbottom will also have his nickname ‘Frosty’ on the window – his character’s name in the Disney.Pixar film.
