It’s official! The Superloop Adelaide 500 will open the 2020 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship with an adrenalin-charged start to the season in Adelaide, South Australia.
The 2020 edition of the event – the 22nd time the Supercars have roared around Adelaide’s East End – will take place from February 20-23.
This year’s Superloop Adelaide 500 saw a huge start to the 2019 season, with the first-ever race for the Ford Mustang Supercar, Scott McLaughlin’s first win at the event, and of course the sell-out Sunday for the Red Hot Chili Peppers after-race concert.
Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, David Ridgway, said the Superloop Adelaide 500 is an iconic part of South Australia’s rich motorsport heritage and was thrilled to confirm the dates for the 2020 event.
“The Superloop Adelaide 500 is a world-class motorsport event which has injected more than $600 million into the state’s economy since its inception, created more than 400 full-time jobs and regularly attracts crowds of more than 250,000 visitors a year,” said Minister Ridgway.
“Securing the season opener is a real coup for the state and reaffirms our reputation for delivering exceptional events.
“We look forward to attracting the attention of the country’s motorsport enthusiasts and, once again, stage an event which sees flow-on benefits for the city’s hotels, bars, restaurants and retailers.”
Supercars CEO Sean Seamer said the series is excited to again open the season in Adelaide.
“As one of the country’s largest and most successful major events, the Superloop Adelaide 500 is one of the standouts of our racing season each year, particularly its longstanding identity as the season-opener,” Seamer said.
“The incredible range of entertainment on and off track as part of a month of festivities in Adelaide sets it apart as a great celebration for the City.”
