New number for Coulthard at Townsville 

Fabian Coulthard will run under #333 for this weekend’s Watpac Townsville 400

Fabian Coulthard will adopt a new number for this weekend’s Watpac Townsville 400.

The Shell V-Power Racing driver will run #333 instead of his regular #12 as part of the team’s ongoing relationship with sponsor Three Threes Condiments, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this weekend. 

The #333 was last used in the series by Michael Patrizi, driving for Paul Cruickshank Racing in 2009. 

Three Threes Condiments and the team will also celebrate the event in a number of other ways, working in conjunction with Supercars on a range of activations in the Townsville community.

The biggest of these will be the grand prize of a fishing trip on the Great Barrier Reef alongside Australian motorsport legend and Shell V-Power Racing Team co-owner Dick Johnson.

Meanwhile, Coulthard is set to reach a milestone of his own at Townsville with Sunday’s race his 400th start in the series.

The Kiwi is currently second in the standings, some 319 points behind team-mate Scott McLaughlin. 

Action at Townsville begins on Friday with opening practice scheduled for 1055 AEST.
