The Adelaide 500 has established itself as the V8 Supercars and Supercars season-opener since it was first held almost 20 years ago way back in 1999 when it was just Ford AU Falcons and Holden VT Commodores competing for supremacy in Australia’s largest domestic motorsport competition! However, it’s not just Supercars that you will see at the Adelaide 500. In 2017 we saw everything from the CAMS Australian GT Championship, to the Touring Car Masters, to the Porcshe Carrera Cup Australia to the Adelaide Casino Stadium Super Trucks take to the track!

Staged on a shortened version of the Adelaide Street Circuit used for the Australian Formula 1® Grand Prix between 1985 and 1995, the race format for the Virgin Australia Supercars consists of two 78 lap, 250km races – one staged on Saturday and Sunday each. Aside from the Bathurst 1000, the round is expected to be the most gruelling for drivers as the tight and technical Adelaide Street Circuit demands a great deal of physicality from drivers – something that is made all the more challenging by the typically high temperatures in Adelaide in March.

Since the inaugural event was staged in 1999, the race weekend has been won a record four times by Jamie Whincup, with four other drivers having won the weekend overall twice. In terms of manufacturer wins, Holden has 13 wins under it’s belt, whilst Ford has 6.

Having been described as “the best touring car event in the world” and holding the record for the highest attended domestic motorsport event in Australia with an incredible 270,000-plus annually, the Adelaide 500 is Australia’s premiere motorsport festival! And we say festival because it’s exactly that – aside from the headline act, Virgin Australia Supercars, also included in the event schedule over the three days are:

  • Dunlop Super2 Series.
  • Stadium Super Trucks.
  • ECB SuperUtes.
  • Audi R8 LMS Cup.
  • Nulon Improved Production Cars.
  • Touring Car Masters.

And that’s just the on-track action! Renowned just as much for the entertainment provided away from the track as on it, there is plenty to see and do at the Adeliade 500. Attractions include Super Enduro-X demonstrations, air displays, car and bike shows, top fuel dragster demonstrations, Showtime FMX displays, drift demonstrations and Modern Speedway displays. And of course, Adelaide’s most well known off track attraction – live concerts by some of Australia’s (and the world in some cases!) biggest performers! Acts to have rocked the Adelaide 500 stage in the past include KISSCold ChiselMotley CrueThe Living EndHilltop HoodsHunters and Collectors and Baby Animals just to name a few!
