Prodrive's star drivers will not have to stack in pitlane this season

Prodrive’s star drivers will not have to stack in pitlane this season

Prodrive has split star drivers Mark Winterbottom and Chaz Mostert in the V8 Supercars pitlane this season.

The release of the V8 Supercars pitlane order today has confirmed the pairings for all 13 pit booms.

The list reveals that Chaz Mostert has been moved into the team’s #55 Rod Nash Racing entry, which shares with Chris Pither’s Super Black Ford.

Winterbottom is meanwhile partnered with ‘TBA’ in car #6, which will be fielded for the soon-to-be-announced Cameron Waters.

While commercial considerations have been stated as the reason for the split, the change crucially ensures that the squad will not have to ‘stack’ its star drivers in pitstops.

The pitlane order is set off of the previous year’s Teams’ Championship result, with grouping applied where appropriate.

As expected, the Red Bull Holdens of Jamie Whincup and Shane van Gisbergen share the first garage, with Triple Eight’s third driver Craig Lowndes and Tekno runner Will Davison next door.

Further down the order, Charlie Schwerkolt’s new Team 18 will work with Brad Jones Racing on pitstops for their respective Lee Holdsworth and Tim Blanchard driven cars.
