The look of the three Mitsubishi Triton SuperUtes has been revealed ahead of this weekend’s season opener in Adelaide.
Sieders Racing Team has expanded to three factory-backed Team Triton entries for 2019, having fielded two at each round of the inaugural season.
Cameron Crick and Elliot Barbour, who each drove a handful of SuperUtes rounds in 2018, will race in Cars #7 and #78 respectively throughout 2019.
Toby Price had been due to campaign the #87 Team Triton SuperUte in selected rounds of the season but is out of action for the time being due to wrist surgery following his against-the-odds Dakar Rally triumph.
Craig Dontas, SRT’s commercial officer, who also drove part-time in SuperUtes last year, will step into Price’s entry for the opening round in Adelaide.
Price, a Mitsubishi ambassador, is hopeful of getting behind the wheel later in the year.
“I’m really sad that I couldn’t get behind the wheel at the Adelaide 500 with Team Triton this year, but I need to focus on my recovery and will be back in the driver’s seat later this year,” said the two-time Dakar winner.
“Although I won’t be on track, I’m looking forward to joining the Mitsubishi Crew in watching the races on Sunday at the event.”
A 13-car field has been confirmed for Round 1 of the 2019 ECB SuperUtes Series, of which SRT is responsible for just over half.
In addition to the three Tritons, the Sydney-based outfit is running four Toyota Hiluxes including the #64 Western Sydney Motorsport car driven by 2018 runner-up Craig Woods.
Practice 1 starts on Thursday at 1015 local time/1045 AEDT.
