ok, there was a mention of 80s truck series just assumed it was then based on the lack of any facts. But so be it 24 years or 30 years its still irrelevant to the current series. Which is the discussion here

Here's a pic of some of them
Thanks Racer69.

I feared I was going to have to spend the weekend going through old issues of Auto Action to find some proof for Peckstar.

I was at the Sandown race, so as someone who was there I can say they left no lasting impression on me. But the Super Trucks were a sight to see at Sandown through the esses.

Here's a couple of screengrabs from the WWOS story. Not a huge field and the series didn't last much longer. Charles even carried an onboard camera to give us a look inside

Now does anyone remember the Toyota Landcruiser Ute one-make series that ran alongside the Sports-Utility series supporting the Super Trucks??
