Reigning V8 Supercars champion Mark Winterbottom has had his day ended early at Bathurst after spinning out into the dirt.

Winterbottom — who was sitting fifth — suffered a braking failure on the 135th lap, spinning out near the entry to The Chase and bogging.

"I turned left at Forrest's Elbow and it broke,” Winterbottom said.

“Pushed hard right into the fence and it is broken down Conrod Straight.”

Watch the incident here:

 

Winterbottom’s inability to finish effectively ends his chances of defending his driver’s championship.
