There's so much to see and do at the Canberra Home & Leisure Show you're bound to find something to interest every member of your family.

Team D-Max Iron Summit - Presented by Isuzu UTE

The Iron Summit, is genuinely the steepest 4WD testing ramp in the world! The ramp demonstrates an incline and decline slope angle of 45 degrees, and has been engineered with an incredible 100 percent grade, meaning the vehicle has an equal run to raise ratio - climbing vertically one meter for every meter travelled. 

The Iron Summit is so steep, that when ascending the incline, passengers often experience a sensation that the vehicle is going to tip backwards. The descent is just as hair-raising as passengers experience their full body weight being transferred to the seat belts. 

While the Iron Summit certainly offers passengers a wild ride, the angle of the ramp actually remains well within the factory standard climbing capabilities of the Isuzu M-UX - the vehicle demonstrated on the Iron Summit. 

Come and ride the Iron Summit for FREE at the Show! Check out the video of what you get the chance to experience 

Where: Team D-Max near the ARB Building   
When: Daily - 10am - 5pm


Team D-Max Two Wheel Driving - Presented by Isuzu UTE

If the Iron Summit wasn't enough to get the heart racing then climb aboard with Team D-Max for another thrill ride in a Isuzu UTE. 

Casually you start to drive normally before you get turned onto your side and drive around a small track on two wheels like the drivers do as apart of their shows they do around the country. 

Come and ride for no additional cost at the Show!


Where: Team D-Max near the ARB Building
