The victorious pair will now travel to Japan in November to take on the best Isuzu technicians from across the globe.

IAL National Training Manager, David Smith, tells us its hoped the boys can take Australia one better than the silver medal finish achieved in 2016.

“Internationally, the I-1 Grand Prix is in its 12th year and the competition is only getting fiercer. But at our trials all the talk amongst the technicians was about wanting to see the IAL team go one better than last year,”

“While only Jake and Drew will be heading to Japan to represent IAL, putting these technicians through their paces revealed how passionate and professional they all are about their work.

“Having such a talented group ultimately benefits the Australian truck customer who can buy an Isuzu truck knowing there’s a world-class team of professional technicians on-hand when it’s time for a service.”
