LOCAL petrol heads are in for a treat at this year’s Nowra Show with the Team D-MAX UTEs set to strut their stuff.
And readers of the South Coast Register have the chance of securing a ride in two of the utes on the Saturday evening of this year’s show.
One of the many exciting attractions at this year’s show, Team D-MAX is set to thrill spectators with a performance that will include close formation driving, high-speed drifts and slides, hair-raising four-way cross-overs, ramp jumps and even driving the vehicles on two wheels.
After an extremely successful debut year, Team D-MAX is back for 2014 and gearing up for the Nowra Show on February 7-8.
The team’s four-car routine lasts around 15 minutes.
Piloting the Team D-MAX UTEs are four of Australia’s top motorsport drivers - Jack Monkhouse, Dave Shannon, John Boston and Michael Long.
The team performs in front of millions of people across Australia every year at major and regional agricultural shows, motorsport events and trade days across Australia with a variety of high octane-driven manoeuvres and formation driving.
“Precision driving has been a crowd favourite at city and regional agricultural shows for over 45 years and reaches a huge live audience in our target markets,” Isuzu UTE’s senior public relations manager Dave Harding said.
“No other sponsorship property outside of off-road racing gives us the opportunity to display D-MAX utes in action, and what Team D-MAX do is truly amazing.”
The team’s lead driver, Jack Monkhouse, said the power of the D-MAX’s three-litre turbo diesel engine was mind-blowing.
“We have put the D-MAXs through some massive challenges over the past 12 months and they continue to perform at the highest level,” he said.
“They’re amazing vehicles and their truck heritage is obvious when you look closely at how they are built.”
The Isuzu Team D-MAX performances at this year’s show are being backed by Country Motor Company.
