HPI have released the Desert-Trophy with an officially authorized, vintage style Ivan ‘Ironman’ Stewart Toyota pick-up truck body. Of all the drivers that have tried to tame the desert, Ivan ‘Ironman’ Stewart is one of the most legendary drivers in American motorsport. From his first win in 1973, the Ironman went on to a hugely successful partnership with Toyota trucks and conquered the off-road racing scene, garnering 17 Baja 500 wins, 8 Mint 400 wins, 4 Parker 400s, 3 Baja 1000s and 4 SCORE World Championships. Ivan is an inductee into the Off Road Motorsports Hall of Fame, alongside such legendary figures as Mickey Thompson, Walker Evans, Parnelli Jones and Dick Cepek. The Desert-Trophy truck is topped with a scale replica of a vintage Toyota racing truck and finished in the iconic color slashes that identified Ivan Stewart’s racing team to all his fans.
