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.

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.
Isuzu UTE is happy to sponsor the Daniel Morcombe Foundation and provide 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.
