Nothing. The emissions equipment plus turbo muffles the noise.

Did I hear the commentators say the Superutes weigh less than the old V8 utes?

With a lot more Superutes on the grid and some more familiarisation I think the racing could be pretty decent. They seem to move around a bit without necessarily losing too much speed.

The blokes who were having a redhot go, were enjoyable to watch.

More utes, with less of a disparity in performance and talent, make a decent show.
