peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
SuperUtes track testing underway

Apparently they forgot to bring a stopwatch for lap times but all was good, someone had a calendar.

This is the sort of path I would prefer they had gone down - king cab Navara with a VK45 V8 dropped in, bit of lowering, and looks fantastic in my opinion. Street driven tow vehicle in NZ.

It looks good, but its a bit under-powered compared to what the super utes will be. Plus its not very production based

This is pretty much what I had envisaged when all the chat first kicked off about moving away from the existing ruleset.

would be great if the utes were actually going to be that low.

The height is the biggest let down in my opinion

The top selling vehicle in Australia for Toyota and for Ford.... and Mitsubishi would like to be there too...

Not a lot of body roll in that video.. they were on road tyres so makes sense that the prototype wasn't being flogged...

32 of these things belting the crap out of each other will still be fun to watch, diesel or petrol or LPG...
