The Australian V8 Ute Racing Series features home grown Aussie V8 muscle power, and is now it’s 17th and final year as a key support category to Supercars. Ryal “The Kid” Harris is the series’ first triple champion, toughing it out with rivals such as David “Sideways” Sieders, Kris “Killa” Walton, Kim “The Assassin” Jane and a stellar cast of rebels, rednecks and good ole racers. Each round generally features 3 races, with the second being a reverse grid race, determined by a random ballot draw and drawn by the winner of Race 1. This is the last of the great Ford/Holden rivalry at its best, so stand well back from the fence and watch Henry and The General go head to head in one of the toughest series around.
