Last month it was Kurri for the NSW dirt track titles and month Team Pettendy to Taree and Raymond Terrace for Zak to contest his first race on an oil track (Old Bar) and the junior long track at Barleigh Ranch respectively.

confidence at an all-time low after his high-speed get-off at Kurri the previous month, Zak failed to the podium at both events, a dream run in his first year of and national title competition on his Division 2 bike.

We think outstanding for a tough dual-cab ute a lusty 420Nm twin-turbo turbo-diesel, smooth eight-speed and a hefty GVM of 3040kg on standard rear leaf springs, together allow it to effortlessly a family of five, a 960kg or a trailer weighing up to 3500kg.
