3. each driver will not have a race suit but an approved tradie driving kit of singlet, hard yakka shorts, work socks and tradie boots,
4. some rounds will see the Utes carry the official building site cement mixer tied onto the back of the Ute,
5. other rounds will see lengths of 4x2 carried on the roof bars and tied down,
6. meetings outside the Metro area, sheep can also carried in the ute tray as well.
7. after race the Ute must be weighed before any crapp is removed from inside the cab and this includes fag packets, Big M containers, quote book from last year, BAS statements and used McDonalds wrappers.

The dog eligible for Ute racing must be a kelpie, border collie, labrador, but none of those little yappie breeds will be allowed. At certain events the dog will be able to move from side to side in tray, to help with aerodynamics.

Any protest that the tradie drivers have to attend will incur a weekend penalty rate.
What about parity for the self employed v's the EBA boys who drive the boss's ute and get their 36 hour week RDO's?

Maybe the CFMEU and ETU should oversee this category instead of CAMS...

No, cos if that happens it'll cost even more and no one will actually race.

If the CFMEU are involved, there will be a grid of least forty utes entered but only ten utes will appear on the grid.

The rest will be off on full pay, union duties, OH&S training, branch stacking, having a sickie or workers comp.

Each round will see a guest driver, this person will drive a super ute with a full load of garden rubbish that isn’t tied down or covered with a tarp, so during the race the contents get left all over the track.

Is this terrible series indicative of what local racing in this country has become/is coming to?

Is it terrible or is it super and representative of the thriving commercial vehicle marketplace, and those who choose to tune up their dualcabs for maximum mumbo jumbo?

Anyway, I think local club racing is still Improved Production, Formula Vee, Circuit Excels and the odd Porsche 911 and Austin Sprite --- the same as always.

I thought it was a great debut.

The utes look great, sounded different to what we are used to, loved the tyre squeal and the racing showed promised.

Bring on round 2.

I think it'll be a better show once there's more of them.

There were guys out there who were pushing pretty hard, which makes it a bit obvious as to who hadn't gotten it together yet.

Surely, as in life, there will be good things and bad. Supercars are world class. Dunlop is a great feeder series. TCM fills its niche well. The Superutes don't seem to be all that flash and so what? Not everything will work and I see it as beneficial to be honest about it. It makes praise for other things (Supercars) ring truer when not everything is positive/ successful
Agree, boring as bat (erghhh) excreta...poor mans stadium super trucks...to each his own though, so I switched the TV off

Not sure what can be done on engine noise... the danper package seems to be okay in them, not killing the pilot’s view when they hit kerbs.

There were a couple of drivers that had gotten a handle on them, and were hustling along quite quickly.

The upcoming test day should help the rest of the field get their heads around it all.

To help, they should practise in one of the old V8 utes and leave the handbrake on.
