The Isuzu Off-Road Academy now operates with the new and enhanced Isuzu KB range for all of its Off-Road Driving Courses and Corporate Team Building Experiences. Launched at the end of last year, customers now benefit from a robust range which includes a 4×4 Automatic and a new 2.5-litre DTEQ turbodiesel engine.
Founded six years ago, the Isuzu Off-Road Academy has trained over 5000 people on the basic techniques of 4×4 driving for road and off-road driving. Now with a new advanced off-road course customers can expect to learn advanced driving techniques for all terrain, vehicle recovery, vehicle maintenance and most importantly the protection of the environment around you whilst off-road driving.
Corporates can now spend a day out with the Isuzu Off-Road Academy as part of an excellent team building initiative where they can enjoy tailor made off-road training programmes whilst enjoying the outdoors and learning the art of Off-Road driving.
With years of experience under their belts, instructors at the Isuzu Off-Road Academy include Grant McCleery – a multiple South African Motorsport Champion, and Marius van Vuuren. Both qualified to facilitate 4×4 courses with qualified training in the specific techniques required for safe and effective 4×4 driving.
“The Isuzu Off-Road Academy is an approved Isuzu service provider that provides an invaluable extension to the Isuzu ownership experience”, says Mlungisi Nonkonyana, Isuzu Brand Manager, GM South Africa. “The course allows the Isuzu owner, particularly the less experienced recreational user, the opportunity to fully realise the potential and thus enjoyment of a 4×4 vehicle for maximised satisfaction and safety in use.”
Isuzu is a key brand of General Motors South Africa with the Isuzu KB entrenched in the market since introduction in South Africa in 1978. The Isuzu KB is renowned for its ride comfort, toughness, durability, reliability and superior off-road ability.
The Isuzu Off-Road Academy is based at Gerotek Testing Facility close to Pretoria but is geared to provide training at virtually any location nationally where training is needed.
