On this day in 2017, it was confirmed that the SuperUtes Series’ debut would be delayed until the following year.

SuperUtes were set to debut at the Townsville round in 2017, however then-Supercars managing director Matt Braid admitted that it was an ambitious launch date.

“I would have loved to have seen them on the grid (at Townsville) with a full field, but equally too you don’t want to do that for the sake of it,” Braid said to Speedcafe.com at the time.
