Snapshots from Borneo Safari 2014

The Borneo Post SEEDS writer Jude Toyat is on the move with Borneo Safari 2014 with Isuzu as this year’s Diamond Sponsor

 

The 24th Borneo Safari which began in Kota Kinabalu on 26th October last week is taking participants on a challenging loop of central Sabah including a stop at the diversely-challenging highland terrain in the Imbak Canyon Conservation Centre.

Isuzu Malaysia has provided the official media cars for the event as it has done for the last eight years, bringing members of the media as close to the action as possible in the comfort and safety of the Isuzu D-MAX.

For this event, Isuzu Malaysia prepared a unit of the new Isuzu D-MAX V-Cross 3.0 which offers superior performance and traction over all kinds of terrain and driving conditions.

The V-Cross 3.0 will again receive minimal modifications with just a few items added to adapt it to the harsh conditions often faced in the jungles of Borneo including an air snorkel, off-road tyres, heavy duty side steps and a winch.

For this year’s event, Isuzu retains its premium position as the Diamond Sponsor, once again forging a formidable alliance with the Sabah Four Wheel Drive Association (SFWDA) in its quest to raise the profile of this annual event, the 24th since its inception.
