19 | 11 | 2015 - TITLE FIGHT HEADS TO THE ISLAND

The Pepsi Max Crew takes the title fight to the penultimate round of the championship at Phillip Island, confident of finding speed at the fast-flowing track. 

Frosty is the Phillip Island qualifying lap record holder and current championship leader so will focus on qualifying up the order across the weekend. 

He has qualified in the top four in his last eight races at the Island, but it will be in Saturday's races that qualifying position will be crucial with races only lasting 14 laps each. 

Cam heads to PI on the back of a fighting effort at Auckland and will continue to build on his learning experience at the Grand Prix circuit, a track well known to the Victorian driver. 
 

Mark Winterbottom - #5 Pepsi Max PRA Ford:
"Phillip Island is hopefully going to be good for us. Obviously we're still in a good position with two events to go so it's coming down to the final rounds and final numbers. Phillip Island has notoriously been quite good. It's a smooth track, and we'll see where we're at when we roll the cars out. We finished New Zealand quite strong so I think we can carry over the strengths that we found there into Phillip Island as well. Hopefully we can score a good bag of points here and take the pressure off for the Sydney round. Two to go, it's finally coming to an end!"

Cameron Waters - #6 Pepsi Max PRA Ford:
"I'm excited for Phillip Island. Having Pukekohe under my belt has helped me quite a bit so I think when we go to Phillip Island I'll build on what we did there. I think I'll be pretty happy. It's a track that I know quite well, I've done a fair few laps around there and it should suit our cars as well. I'm keen to get to Phillip Island and see how we go."

Tim Edwards – Team Principal: 
"Phillip Island is a great, fast flowing track that I think will really suit our cars. The drivers have all said that the cars had good speed at turn one and turn 11 at Auckland which is good leading into a track that has a lot of similar corners. There are only two events left but we'll take them one at a time and focus on all of the other stuff when we get to it."
