The Clipsal 500 is one of the rounds of the Australian V8 Supercar series. The Clipsal 500 event is a 4 day carnival, staged on a street circuit just outside the Adelaide CBD, in South Australia. It has attendances of 270,000+ people. The Adelaide round of the event has been running for over 10 years. It consists of 2x 250km races held on consecutive days.

V8 Supercars have their roots in production V8 sedan cars built by Holden (GM) and Ford here in Australia. The V8 Supercar series today stages races predominatly in Australia and New Zealand, as well as the Middle East (Bahrain and Abu Dhabi). This series is as popular in our region as the NASCAR series is in the USA or the Formula 1 series in Europe. (Visit v8supercars.com.au/ for more information).
