Isuzu D-Max: BCCC Rally Round 1
The organisers of the 2014 Britpart MSA British Cross Country Championship
(BCCC) said it was a streak of masochism on their part to host the opening
round at Myherin, also known as the Welsh 'Pikes Peak'. Rally stages are
rarely hospitable places but this location is infamous for serving up four
seasons of weather on a daily basis. Meanwhile, the course builders decided
to inject even more drama by mapping out a punishing route filled with fast
straights, tricky technical corners and 1000ft fluctuations in height.
Most vehicles competing in the BCCC are dedicated off-road racers that do
not need to be road-legal to take part. So it was perhaps with some
trepidation that Isuzu UK entered this battlefield with a production class
vehicle as part of its newly formed Jewson Isuzu D-Max Rally Team.
Admittedly, some competition preparation has gone into the construction of
this Double Cab pick-up (see box entitled 'Vehicle Specification' below)
but it conforms to Class 1B mandates that restrict certain motorsport

one. However this moisture also reduced the plumes of dust generated from
the gravel surface, which allowed competitors to get a good view of the
course during the sighting lap. On their return, driver Jason Sharpe and
co-driver Russell Sharpe - both racing veterans - looked slightly
shell-shocked at its gruelling nature. Nonetheless they were eager to see
what the sturdy D-Max could do to bring the fight to the hoards of hardcore

2013 Year Of The D-Max
2013 has been a fantastic year for Isuzu's D-Max. In this video we recap
some of the best and most memorable moments for the D-Max in 2013.
Going from strength to strength the D-Max has established itself as one of
the leading pick up trucks in the UK. Not only that, in 2013, the Isuzu
D-Max was given the VansA2Z 'Pick Up Truck of The Year' award. There really
isn't much better than that.
Also, with the new model D-Max, was the 3.5 towing capacity, which is an
increase of 500 kilograms compared to the previous model, which puts the
pickup truck on top of the leader board in the United Kingdom is terms of
pick up truck towing capacities.
The limited edition 'Huntsman' model was also unleashed onto the market,
with much success, and we invited a number of people to our highly
successful D-Maxperience Days, and numerous off-road events and tests.
All in all, 2013 was a fantastic year for Isuzu and the D-Max, and here is
to the continued success in 2014.
