Irizar UK’s open weekend on March 24-25 is the first time operators have been offered the opportunity to scrutinise the full range of Irizar DAF-powered integrals.

The event is being held at Irizar UK’s premises in Worksop, where five examples of the i6, i4 and PB coaches, accompanied by a range of Euro 4-compliant used vehicles, are to be on display for operators to view and drive.

All the new coaches are DAFpowered; the i6 and i4 with the DAF PR 265 at 360bhp and the PB with the DAF MX300 at 408bhp. Irizar UK states all vehicles have been extensively tested in ‘real world’ scenarios to ensure an extended and reliable service life.

Ian Hall, sales director of Irizar UK, said: “To date our coaches have sold almost immediately and gone straight to the operators. In a sense we’ve been a victim of our own success. It’s great to finally have a the full range for test drive.”
