Mark Winterbottom has wrapped up the 2001 Ford KartStars series by taking second place at the Todd Road (Melbourne) final on the weekend. Winterbottom went in to the weekend battling with fellow NSW driver Chris Cox for the prized Formula Ford drive, but after Cox made contact with Wiliam Yarwood late in the race, Mark was able to breath easy and secure the series with second. The round win went to Matthew Wall with Josh Arandt taking third. Winterbottom won the series with Cox and Yarwood in second and third.
well done to MarK on a great effort and I look forward to seeing how he goes next year when he moves up to tackle the world of formula ford.
