Six Isuzu D-Max pick-ups are being supplied to York Racecourse as official support vehicles.

The trucks, from York Van Centre, will be used by doctors, judges and vets to transport both people and equipment around the venue.

The fleet comprises one of each model in the D-Max range – a Utility Extended Cab, an Eiger, a Yukon, a Utah, a Blade and a Blade+.

The Utility Extended Cab will be used to transport larger items such as audio-visual equipment, cables, and crowd control barriers, while the top-spec Blade+ will be used to transport the judging team around the venue in comfort, with features such as heated seats and automatic air conditioning.

York Racecourse chief executive and clerk of the course William Derby said: “The Isuzu D-Max has a wide range of models that are built for different applications which is essential for us, as our support vehicles perform such a wide variety of tasks. 

“The Utility model allows us to transport more equipment around while the top of the range Blade provides comfort and luxury. 

“It’s been a pleasure dealing with York Van Centre, they’re a very friendly and approachable team with great communication skills, keeping us informed at every step of the journey.”
