All New Isuzu D-MAX Conquers 2021 Rally Cross Series | Motourismo

IPC President Mr. Hajime Koso with Mr. Olson Camacho PHRX Organizer.

Fresh from seizing the Best Pick Up Award in the 17th Annual C! Awards, the all-new Isuzu D-MAX continues to move into new heights as it conquers the tracks in the 2021 Philippine Rallycross Series (PHRX), Rounds 5 and 6, on November 7 at the open grounds of the Clark Global City, Clark Freeport, Pampanga.  

Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) fielded two teams of All-New Isuzu D-MAX 3.0 4x4 LS-E A/T models led by veteran race car driver, Mon Dimapilis, who is also a businessman and Vince Pornelos, a motoring-media.  The D-MAX entry composed of one unmodified D-MAX, similar condition to showroom vehicles, and the other, with changes limited to suspension and tires. It proved to be a beast on the racetrack besting many competitors who regularly compete with purpose-built rally-tuned vehicles and managing to stay within the top 3 winners in 3 different categories.  Praises to its powerful 4JJ3-TCX Blue Power Diesel Engine and superb vehicle design, and of course the driver’s expertise. 

Each of the D-MAX was tortured on the circuit during the race and yet survived without damage or need for repair. Both were able to drive home without problem - ready for the next working day and waiting for the next weekend race.  Indeed, the All-New D-MAX once again proved its reliability and durability.

PHRX is a timed racing competition that is held on a close course track, that is basically a dirt circuit.  It started in 2015 and has since accrued the respect and participation of many motorsport experts and enthusiasts.  Among them is Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) who competed in 3 different categories:  Open Class which is open for any engine displacement, UV Class which is for all types of pick-ups, sports and Asian utility vehicles, and AWD Class, for all types of 4-Wheel drive vehicles.
