Isuzu UTE are proud to partner with a diverse range of impactful ambassadors – all of which live the ‘Go Your Own Way’ message. From racetracks to dirt tracks, our partners have a unique and empowering story to tell.
Team Isuzu D-MAX
The Isuzu D-MAX is the official car of Australia’s one and only precision driving team, providing real deal ruggedness and performance to the stunt show.
The team’s performances include close formation driving, high speed drifts and slides, hair-raising cross-overs and ramp jumps and even driving the vehicles on two wheels.
The Team D-MAX show is always a crowd favourite and a spectacle that has to be seen to be believed.
“We’ve obviously got some pretty skilled drivers in the team but the shows we do are a massive test for the vehicles as well,” said EMG Director, Wayne Boatwright.
You can see Team D-MAX in action at agricultural shows and events around Australia each year.
SUPERUTES – ROSS STONE RACING & CALTEX AUSTRALIA
It took six race wins and fifteen podium finishes to chalk up the points to win the 2019 ECB SuperUtes Championship Title. But, with Tom Alexander behind the wheel of the #22 Caltex Delo Racing Isuzu D-MAX SuperUte and a partnership between Isuzu UTE Australia, Ross Stone Racing and Caltex Australia, that was enough to give the young-Kiwi driver the championship-winning race car.
Unique to Australia, the SuperUtes Championship Series is a homologised production car category, which pits 1.8-tonne, diesel dual cab Utes against each other on some of Australia’s most iconic racetracks. For the 2019 championship, the field utilised the factory-fitted Isuzu diesel engine—in Alexander’s case, the invulnerable 3-litre turbo diesel, Isuzu 4JJ1—which were tweaked to produce upwards of 700Nm of torque, making for some interesting racing.
With V8 SuperCars hall of Famer, Ross Stone in Tom Alexander’s corner, the #22 Caltex Delo Racing Isuzu D-MAX SuperUte was always destined for success on the track, but to win the 2019 championship title in their inaugural year with the D-MAX is a remarkable accomplishment to add to Stone’s on-track achievements.

DANIEL MORCOMBE FOUNDATION
The Daniel Morcombe Foundation Inc was established in 2005 as a result of the extraordinary community support shown to the Morcombe family following the abduction and suspected murder of 13 year old Daniel Morcombe on the Sunshine Coast, December 2003.
The Foundation’s motto is “Protection, Safety and Opportunity for our children,” which is enforced by Bruce and Denise Morcombe’s commitment to training and education of school age children.
Bruce and Denise Morcombe’s ‘My Isuzu Story’ recounts how they are committed to continuing to drive their safety message—driving thousands of kilometres each year in their Isuzu MU-X—visiting schools to spread their message of child safety.
Isuzu UTE is proud to partner with the Daniel Morcombe Foundation by providing a vehicle that allows Bruce and Denise to deliver presentations to schools across Queensland, implementing the Daniel Morcombe Child Safety curriculum developed in conjunction with the Department of Education, Training and Employment.
