Adelaide chops Supercars Round for 2020

The South Australian Government has communicated its decision to no longer conduct the Adelaide 500.

Supercars have enjoyed racing at this event since 1999.

“We regret that the South Australian Government has decided to cease holding this event. Supercars are looking forward to providing our fans with an exciting 2021 Championship across Australia and New Zealand.

“If at any time in the future, the South Australian Government decides to recommence the Adelaide 500, Supercars would be delighted to be there.

The Superloop Adelaide 500 has been an event icon for over 20 years, and this decision was made with careful consideration,” said South Australian Premier Steven Marshall.

“Recent restrictions has presented significant challenges for the events sector, and the uncertainty and other factors became an insurmountable hurdle in the plight to deliver a successful race.

“South Australia sets the benchmark for delivering world-class events, and we will continue to invest in this space to create local jobs.

“We remain a strong supporter of motorsports and will move swiftly to assess all options for motorsport future events,”
