Isuzu 2015 BCCC Round 3 Forrest Estate - Round Up
Check out the full round up from round three of the 2015 BCCC, which took place in the heart of Forrest Estate. Rally veteran Jason Sharpe was ecstatic to be navigating the D-Max round the fast, flowing tracks, whereas co-driver Richard Lester was slightly anxious. With the course consisting of a few rough sections, a huge water splash and an abundance of blind crests, the D-Max had a tough challenge ahead. Due to the D-Max’s reliable, rugged nature, warn anti-roll bar bushes had not been checked or replaced before the event, causing problems for Isuzu Jewson D-Max Rally Team during the stage. After the skilled team of mechanics had worked their magic, the D-Max was back on top form! However shortly after, the duo were held up yet again for a total of 1 minute 20 seconds, after a competitor in front leapt into the watersplash and broke down in the water. The D-Max’s reoccurring issue of a faulty ECU arose, sending the D-Max into limp home mode. But with a quick fix the D-Max was let loose along the flowing tracks of Forrest Estate…until the D-Max suffered a puncture, dropping more time for Isuzu. On the Sunday the duo achieved some fantastic runs after the D-Max’s minor teething problems, but a slip into the wrong gear cost Isuzu a sub of 10 seconds. Nevertheless the D-Max made it through the challenge, reaffirming its reputation as an indestructible rally truck. On the 25th and 26th July, Isuzu will be heading to Hafren Forest for round four of the BCCC! Keep up to date with the BCCC at www.isuzuoutdoorlife.co.uk
Isuzu BCCC Round 3 Forrest Estate - Teaser
Get a taste of the off-road action from round 3 of the BCCC that took place in the depths of Forrest Estate. Once again Jason Sharpe was behind the wheel of the indestructible D-Max pick-up truck, with co-driver Richard Lester by his side. Isuzu’s rally veteran Jason was grinning ear to ear as Forrest Estate provided a fantastic course which was right up his street. Fast, flowing tracks combined with only a few rough patches meant Jason could really have some fun in the D-Max and put his foot to the floor. With an abundance of blind crests thrown into the mix, Richard’s co-driving skills were going to be put to the test making him slightly anxious. Jason had to control the D-Max through one particular section of the course containing a remarkable drop. The D-Max was launched up over a blind crest, then plummeted back down to earth with a sudden drop into a pool of muddy water, stunning the duo. Yet again the imperishable D-Max made it to the end of the event!
