AKA Racing and Mitsubishi Triton participate in ASIA CROSS COUNTRY RALLY

AKA Racing, Vietnam’s first professional rally team, and Triton, a Mitsubishi Motors Vietnam’s pick-up model, will take part in the 27th Asia Cross Country Rally (AXCR 2022), from November 21 to 26, 2022, in Thailand and Cambodia. AKA Racing and the Mitsubishi Triton, with their apprearance in Vietnam Motor Show 2022 in Ho Chi Minh City, has drawn great attention from media agencies and national audience, particularly major communities of car enthusiasts, speed lovers, and technical fans. 

AKA Racing team, with the sponsorship of Mitsubishi Motors Vietnam, upgraded the original Mitsubishi Triton into a professional rally racing car and was the first Vietnamese team to participate in the AXCR 2019 in Thailand and Myanmar. The Triton and AKA Racing team overcome all challenges, conquered all terrains in harsh weather conditions to successfully complete the race’s 6 legs and finished at position 17/34. They won a Special Award for the Team with The Most Impressive Result.  

Mitsubishi Triton, with a powerful alluminium alloy block 2.4L Diesel engine, the application of MIVEC system variable valve timing technology, and a capacity of 181PS at 3500RPM and 430Nm of traction at 2500RPM, offers outstanding performance, meeting a variety of work and outdoor requirements on many complex and dangerous terrains. With a light-weight, high-capacity engine, along with a balanced head and tail, Mitsubishi Triton can operate persistantly on thousands of kilometers of extremely harsh racetracks of a cross-country rally. 

The legendary Super Select 4WD – II transmission system equipped with a center differential that enables the car to switch its gear while driving at speeds up to 100km/h and operating 2-wheel at speeds up to 120km/h. This is one of the factors that persuaded AKA Racing team to choose Mitsubishi Triton for rally races. Triton’s 6-speed gearbox helps racers to shift gears smoothly and accelerate strongly. The sport gearshift paddle on the steering wheel helps racers change gear quicker and easier when the car is running at high speed on rough and harsh roads. 

The high-speed rally racing format is full of dangers and difficulties, which requires participating cars to be durable and strong. All car parts must be able to operate with high intensity and for a long consecutive period of time to complete races up to 500km each day. 

More specifically, with the vehicle’s original wheelbase, large ground clearance, and optimized angle of incidence, exit, and overtaking, Mitsubishi Triton can operate more flexibly than other pickup truck in the same segment, from narrow forest roads to steep hilly passes. 

Mitsubishi Triton is AKA Racing’s ideal choice in conquering the toughest rally races in Vietnam and abroad. With serious and methodical investment, as well as the support of Mitsubishi Motors Vietnam, AKA Racing committs to pursuing and popularizing rally motorsport, making it a favorite sport of mass audiences in Vietnam. 

After being fully upgraded according to FIA technical and safety standards for international rally racing, but still retaining the most important parts of the original Mitsubishi Triton, including the powerful engine heart, preeminent transmission system, and exceptional high-speed gearswitching, AKA Racing and Mitsubishi Motors Vietnam are fully confident that the AKA Triton racing car will continue to write the first history pages for rally racing in Vietnam, as well as bringing the Vietnam national flag to international arenas of this fascinating and extreme sport.
