Team Mitsubishi Ralliart Is on Its Way to Consecutive Victories in Asia Cross Country Rally 2023 with the New Triton Rally Car
BANGKOK – August 11, 2023: Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (hereafter, Mitsubishi Motors) announces that Team Mitsubishi Ralliart, for which it provides technical support, will be taking on the Asia Cross Country Rally 2023 (hereafter, AXCR) in Thailand and Laos. In this competition, scheduled for August 13 to 19, the team will be driving three new Triton rally cars (T1 cross-country prototypes).
The ceremonial start of the event will be held on August 13, the first day of the event, in Pattaya, a resort in southern Thailand. The following day, August 14, the team will drive east along the border between southeast Thailand and Cambodia, racing towards its goal near Prasat Wat Phu, one of Laos's World Heritage sites, on the 19.
"To lead the Team Mitsubishi Ralliart to victory as team director, I've been leveraging the expertise I've built up through my past rally experience, shaping up the team and putting the finishing touches on the rally cars. The base car of the new Triton rally car has been improved, and on top of that we've used the results from last year's rally to make them even faster, stronger, and more durable. We've confirmed that it's met our higher expectations through the shakedown test," said Hiroshi Masuoka, team director of Team Mitsubishi Ralliart. “We've created a solid service system to support the team, and we're providing emotional support as well so that the drivers and co-drivers can give 100%. Team Mitsubishi Ralliart is more than ready to take on this tough challenge. We'll do our best to claim a second consecutive win."
