TITAN-VNS RETURNS TO THE RACETRACK FOR NEW CHALLENGE

Titan-VNS Auto Logistics Co. Ltd. (“Titan-VNS”) is pleased to announce that as the highlight of our sporting programme for the upcoming season we will enter an Isuzu D-Max racing pickup truck in Idemitsu Super Turbo Thailand Championship 2019.

Idemitsu Super Turbo Thailand Championship is a leading national motor racing championship and is promoted by Three Crowns Racing Project. Now starting its third season the highly prestigious series has grown in statue and leading teams compete for the top prizes in categories with bumper grids that encompass production cars, eco cars, touring cars, sports cars and pickup trucks.

Titan-VNS Racing will enter an Isuzu D-Max turbodiesel pickup truck driven Noppon Cherdchusud, a company manager, who previously piloted our entry in the Isuzu One Make Race two seasons ago. The truck will be prepared and serviced by Three Crowns Racing Project with the additional support of Titan-VNS staff.

This Isuzu D-Max pickup truck has been upgraded exclusively for racing but with limited modifications that are mainly focused around the area of safety and that will allow the driver to demonstrate his ability along with the skill of the technicians.

For Titan-VNS that ticks a number of boxes and we believe provides perfect synergies with our cutting-edge supply chain techniques. To succeed in motor racing you need absolute skill, dedication, split second reactions and the ability to work as a harmonious team, each member playing their part in the quest for success – winning or losing can come down to mere fractions of a second. Lean and efficient the team must be very hungry for success. They're also the same core attributes that are required to be a leader in the highly competitive supply chain sector.

Then add in the fact that this gives us the opportunity to compete using Isuzu’s latest-generation efficient 1.9 litre turbodiesel power unit and that means we’re going racing with real life application and relevance.

We put that all into practice as both driver and the additional support crew are handpicked picked from our staff, drawn from all spheres of our supply chain operations, meaning we test our skills in action against a grid that features many highly experienced and competitive drivers and teams. And motorsport is really in our blood, Titan-VNS President, Mr. Bordin Tanthaphaiboon, is a former Thai national racing championship.

Idemitsu Super Turbo Thailand Championship 2019 will comprise of three rounds this year, each with a ‘double header’ format of two races, one on the Saturday and the other on Sunday. The opening round comes up this weekend (15-17 March) and will take place at Bira International Circuit, Pattaya before the final two rounds take the series to Chang International Circuit, Buriram, twice, on 24-26 May and 19-21 July, respectively.

Titan-VNS Racing is being supported for the 2019 season by Titan-VNS, Kess Pack, Albatross Logistics, Apollo Idemitsu and RTM Ramintra Mag.

It’s going to be tough but we always relish the fight.
