Supercars have a history of rulesets they've proposed getting delayed, this SuperUtes delay is par for the course (they'd hope)

The very first post in this thread said July 2017. And this date has now changed to 2018

but yes delayed
I'm pretty sure there was going to be a prototype doing laps at Clipsal this year. Well, until it got delayed....

After watching the stadium trucks today. Kill the super ute series and expand the trucks, much more exciting.

Does a 747 transporter carry the Super Trucks between US and Aus?

Different beast. 12 trucks out there at $250K each. (compared to what is hoped $100K and 20 plus utes)

Stadium trucks are sports "entertainment" (their words) they are like a replacement for V8 challenge or or for motorbike stunts

Where as Super utes are a racing series

So the Ute series is not entertainment?

Didn't Tony Cochrane always tell us that V8Supercars were entertainment first?

Hence the way the category has gone since 1997? Entertainment driven, rather than competition driven?

Well we don't know yet do we - because it hasn't run yet.

Clearly both the utes series and stadium trucks are entertainment, just different forms of entertainment or focus / detail on how they run.

THis comment exactly.

Racing is entertainment or suppose to be. The Trucks are both racing and entertainment. They arnt drift cars or motorbikes they are racing and jumping and had everyone in awe (what i saw) anyway this new ute series Im sure will be as boring as batsh*t

I hope you prove me wrong.
