Ten seasons as a major category and still going strong. The PORTERGROUP V8 Utes are 1800kg, finely matched Holden and Ford machines producing 400 plus horsepower and all running identical brakes and road legal Yokohama tyres.

That's a recipe for excitement and entertainment. Some of the drivers have been in it since it began and are household names in the racing world - Peter 'Kaos' Ward, Brett 'The Scud' Rudd and Geoff 'SOS' Spencer. This season it's going to be bigger and better with four awesome rounds, new drivers and some new V8 ute machines. It's serious racing though and takes a talented driver to win - past championship winners include Chris Pither, now a Supercar star, former NZV8 champ Paul 'Auto' Manuell and our most recent champion, Richard 'Danger' Moore.
