One of the highlights for this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed is an appearance of the rally version of the Isuzu D-Max.
The vehicle is currently taking part in the British Cross Country Championships and its driver Jason Sharp will be showing petrolheads what the pick-up can do.
The Isuzu D-Max is one of the best pick-ups available in the UK and Jason will be putting the vehicle through its paces in the off-road experience which is close to the famous hill climb venue.
Last year the rally Isuzu D-Max team won the pick-up and production class honours in the Britpart MSA British Cross Country Championship and the vehicle is already leading the table this year.
The season has reached its halfway stage so the Goodwood appearance for the Isuzu D-Max comes at a good time with round four of the championships taking place from 25 July.
The rally championships is a great way to test the abilities of the Isuzu D-Max with a series of six competitive rallies taking place over two days in Scotland and Wales around a variety of testing terrain.
Rallying version of the Isuzu D-Max close to the road going vehicle
Indeed, the rallying version of the D-Max is very close to the road going vehicle that anyone can buy and be impressed with as an excellent workhorse.
The gearbox and engine are all to factory spec as are the bodywork and suspension arms.
For competition purposes, the wheels, dampers and tyres have all been strengthened and safety equipment such as harnesses and rally seats have been added.
Otherwise the Isuzu D-Max is the same model that anyone can buy and the review team at commercialvehicle.com really enjoyed this pick-up and gave it full marks; a very rare honour indeed.
Sales of the D-Max are going from strength-to-strength with buyers enjoying a sturdy and well-built pick-up that dominates it sector – underpinned with an impressive warranty and support package.
