LONDON – Jan 14, 2014: Isuzu UK this weekend unveiled a rally-ready version of its award-winning D-Max pick-up at the Autosport International show in the build up to the brand’s participation in the 2014 Britpart MSA British Cross Country Championship (BCCC).

The BCCC is the country’s premier domestic off-road racing championship, consisting of six two-day competitive rallies across Scotland and Wales. The Isuzu D-Max BCCC will compete in Class 1B, which mandates a maximum engine capacity of 2,500 cc and restricts motorsport enhancements. This will ensure that the rally Isuzu will retain many characteristics of the road-going D-Max.

The Isuzu racer will be driven by former British Rally Championship contender, Jason Sharpe, and co-piloted by his nephew, Russell Sharpe. In addition to the BCCC, the Sharpe family and the D-Max will compete in other one-off events, including several T2 class FIA Rally Raids across Europe.

Isuzu has a proud recent history in the toughest rally of them all, the Dakar, so the company is hopeful that the D-Max will be competitive from the start of the season.

Underlining the robust and trusted underpinnings of the D-Max pick-up, Isuzu sold 4,112 pick-ups to UK customers in 2013 – a record for the brand.
