With the 2019 Superloop Adelaide 500 just days away, it's time to get yourself organized for an action packed four days!
There's so much to see and do, it will definitely pay to plan your days so you don't miss a minute of the action.
From what to bring, what to see, and what to eat and drink, we've got your top 10 tips for an awesome time at the track.
1. Know what to bring!
The best way to start is having the right gear with you.
We recommend wearing comfy shoes, and clothing that will keep you protected from the sun. A collared t-shirt or polo and a hat are essential, and don't forget the sunscreen!
It's also handy to bring some earplugs if you're planning on taking in as much on-track action as possible, plus some binoculars and a small radio!
Other great things to bring along are:
- Small foam ice boxes/eskys (containing non-alcoholic beverages with the manufacturers seal intact)
- Folding chairs (if you are not sitting in a grandstand or reserved seating area)
- Official Superloop Adelaide 500 Program
- A team t-shirt or something you can have your favourite driver sign at the Autograph session
Most importantly, double check you've got your ticket, and if you have bought a Student ticket, your valid Student ID!
