The new V8 SuperUtes are set to return in their new V8 power plant in May 2021 as part of a five-round season on the Supercars undercard.
The competitors have taken control of the V8 SuperUtes category. In a COVID reduced year they have been busy replacing the turbo diesels with V8 LS3 power units in the down time.
Fans will get to witness the new V8 formula on-track at five Supercars events throughout 2021, debuting at The Bend Motorsport Park in early May.

“The three key pillars of the new formula are entertainment, desire and affordability. Starting with entertainment we’ve listened to the fans and dropped in a 6.2L LS3 V8 engine, along with a new wheel and tyre package.”
“We’ve done heaps of testing with our Haltech Triton, and everyone who’s driven it loves it. Many drivers are showing a desire to join the category for 2021. There’s a few new teams joining the category for 2021 and we’re expecting 15+ cars at the opening round”
“The V8’s have dropped the cost of running and maintaining the SuperUtes, creating a better value for money experience for both the competitors and their commercial partners.”
