New Number for Coulthard in Townsville

July 1, 2019

GOLD COAST, AUSTRALIA – Iconic Australian condiment brand Three Threes will utilise their relationship with the Shell V-Power Racing Team to help celebrate the company’s 100th anniversary during this weekend's Watpac Townsville 400.
Fabian Coulthard’s Shell V-Power Racing Team Mustang will bear the number 333 in place of its regular 12 as it races around the Reid Park Circuit in Far North Queensland’s largest city.

Three Threes Condiments and the Shell V-Power Racing 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.

The weekend will also see another milestone reached, with Coulthard to start his 400th Supercars race on Sunday.
