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. comment policy reserves the right to deny any post that is abusive or offtopic. Users are encouraged to flag/report comments which should be removed.
