With this year’s edition of the Borneo Safari just around the corner, all the participating manufacturers are in the midst of adding the final touches to their machines that will be taking part.
That said, Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) announced that it will be joining in the fray with four Triton 4X4 pick-up trucks, with two of it being the New Triton with MIVEC Turbo Diesel Engine.
Unlike last year where MMM participated with only one unit of the Triton, it has upped the ante this year with three more units.
Out of the four Tritons, one will be a corporate vehicle piloted by local motorsports talent Leona Chin, plus a media vehicle which will be handled by members of the press.
It is said that an additional five Tritons belonging to private owners will also be joining the convoy, bringing the total of Mitsubishi Triton vehicles participating in the Borneo Safari to nine.
The participating Tritons are being outfitted with the compulsory equipment such as winch, protection bars, recovery points, extreme tires, suspension and also snorkels. According to MMM, the tires for the Triton are also sponsored by global tire company, Giti tyres.
The Borneo Safari will take place from 30 October – 6 November in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, covering 1000 km of some of the most challenging and varied off-road terrains in the world.
