GO BOLDLY

Athlete coverpic
The sporty new Triton Athlete which is based on the international Triton Adventure X-development, boldly stands out in any famous crowd. This new Special Edition lifestyle double cab bakkie is assembled in Mitsubishi’s Thailand factory and shares the underpinnings of the top-of-the-range Triton double-cab 4x4 automatic derivative.

The new Triton Athlete with its bold orange and black highlights and exterior design cues with matching interior trimmings, caters for individuals and families who live life to the extreme, participating in adventure and sporty lifestyle activities such as surfing, mountain biking, paragliding, show jumping and even motocross or off-road motorcycling.

However, the new lifestyle-orientated Triton Athlete does not only look sportier and more athletic than its double-cab siblings, but also offers an upgraded towing capacity of 3.1 tons to tow any lifestyle equipment, as well as increased safety features such as 7 airbags and Isofix child seat anchors for increased passenger and child safety.

PERFORMANCE FEATURES
AGILE AND SMOOTH CAR-LIKE DRIVING
The new Triton Athlete is as nimble as an obstacle course athlete thanks to its manageable size which makes it easy to drive around town, great to manoeuvre in tight spots on and off the road and can be easily parked in most garages and parking bays. The Triton’s innovative design results in a class-leading turning radius of only 5.9 metres and makes it a pleasure to drive in congested urban areas and harsh off-road conditions.

The new Triton Athlete was designed to match the ride quality of an SUV without compromising the workhorse qualities that have made lifestyle double cab bakkies so popular in South Africa. Numerous noise insulators as well as noise absorbing and damping materials are applied in many parts of the Triton to further reduce NVH levels, resulting in a smooth and quiet car-like driving experience. The dynamic and sporty suspension enables car-like ride comfort and superb driving stability which also reduces body roll, provides quicker handling response and ensures a safer, quieter and more comfortable ride.

UNIQUE SUPER SELECT II 4WD SYSTEM
The latest version of Mitsubishi’s unique Super Select II four-wheel drive system is fitted to the new Triton Athlete which makes it the ideal extreme sport partner. The highly capable Super Select II 4WD system, which also improves cornering performance and manoeuvrability, provides the Triton Athlete with four drive modes to give the driver more control in challenging weather conditions or on difficult surfaces:

2H (2WD High range) gives quieter running and better fuel consumption during normal on-road driving;
4H (4WD High range), selectable at speeds up to 100 km/h, distributes torque in a 40:60 ratio between front and rear axles via a centre differential (CD) – the latter permits safer on-road driving in slippery conditions;
4HLc (4WD High range with CD locked) improves traction on sand, dirt and snow roads by distributing torque equally between the front and rear;
4LLc (4WD Low range with CD locked) provides greater torque for extreme off-road conditions.
Excellent axle reticulation, combined with Mitsubishi’s legendary Super-Select II four-wheel drive system, class-leading approach angle of 28°, departure angle of 22° and break-over angle of 25°, make the Triton Athlete a mean off-road competitor, which can be your ideal partner in all your extreme adventure lifestyle activities.

FORMULA E DRIVERS AND SIM RACERS WENT WHEEL-TO-WHEEL IN THE VEGAS ERACE AT THE CES

fia president jean todt 010717db 050

In a bid to tap the growing influence of gaming and technology on the world of sports, the FIA Formula E Championship Saturday pitted motorsports’ leading racers against Sim—or simulated—racing competitors who have honed their skills behind steering wheels connected to sophisticated computers.

The competition took place not on a track, but in a Las Vegas convention hall hosting the 50th annual CES, the world’s largest consumer electronics and consumer technology tradeshow. The $1 million total purse awarded in the VISA Formula E Vegas eRace made it the richest in esports racing history.

An enthusiastic gathering of media, exhibitors, industry analysts and the FIA President Jean Todt watched history in the making as the drivers and sim racers went wheel-to-wheel on the famous Las Vegas Strip.

Bono Huis, the Faraday Future Dragon Racing sim racer, clinched victory in the inaugural Visa Vegas eRace and with it the biggest prize in eSports racing history - walking away with $200,000 and securing an additional $25,000 for pole position.

Huis, who topped every session throughout the event, made a clean getaway from the line and held on to his lead throughout the first stint. Following the first round of pitstops, the Dutch driver dropped to second place behind Olli Pahkala (Mahindra Racing). Huis eventually inherited success from Pahkala who was handed a 12-second penalty following a post-race investigation for having gained an unfair performance advantage caused by a software issue. Pahkala took the lead mid-way through the race, but was later found to have suffered a technical glitch with a sustained power delivery of FanBoost over and above the limit for five laps during his second stint. Pahkala was demoted to third place following the application of the time penalty and rounded out the podium finishers.

Despite entering unknown territory, the Formula E drivers demonstrated that driving ability is comparable across both a real and virtual world. Felix Rosenqvist (Mahindra Racing) showed his natural ability for sim racing and versatility putting in a strong performance to finish second as the best-placed Formula E driver.

Jose Maria Lopez (DS Virgin Racing), Sam Bird (DS Virgin Racing), Daniel Abt (ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport) and Nelson Piquet Jr. (NextEV NIO) finished in the top-10, again highlighting the close competition between the drivers and sim racers. David Greco (Renault e.dams) crossed the line in 15th place, but picked up fastest lap and $10,000 in the process.

Just as it pioneered electric car racing on city streets around the world, Formula E created the groundbreaking CES event, which attracted and retained a large crowd during the four-hour qualifying round and race and the 20-lap final contest. The format largely mirrored a traditional Formula E race.

Formula E incorporated iconic elements of the Las Vegas Strip into the specially designed virtual e-course, which drivers were not able to experience until practice sessions that began Friday. Drivers sat in individual simulated cockpits in Playseat gaming setups running rFactor 2 software. The software offered strikingly realistic views of the course on both the competitors’ individual consoles and on the massive screens on which the throngs of fans watched inside the convention hall.

Unlike the commercially popular arcade racing games, professional sim racing software simulates the real-world considerations professional drivers must master, including energy usage, damage, tire wear and suspension. It ensures that sim racers understand the challenges of real-world racing.

Earlier in the day at a CES panel that was part of CES’ Sports Business Innovation Summit, FIA President Jean Todt and Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag gave a nod to the importance sim racing may play in expanding the motorsports fan base. “Clearly, this new technology, this new way of allowing people to access motor sports, is a new opening,” Todt said.

After the panel, Todt visited CES’ Eureka Park, home to more than 500 start-ups companies looking to launch new products, services or ideas. While there, he spent time surveying the booths of French start-ups.

Todt also visited CES’ Self-Driving Technology Marketplace, which showcases technology advancing autonomous-automated driving (including parking assistance), collision avoidance and emergency braking. The marketplace touts the statistic that advanced vehicle technology could eliminate more than 90 percent of U.S. road traffic deaths. While in the marketplace, Todt experimented with a driver-less BMW.
