The 2020 Superloop Adelaide 500 is shaping up to welcome a very different grid to Adelaide, with driver movements falling into place.
The exit of Garry Rogers Motorsport combines with the emergence of expanded teams like Brad Jones Racing (up to four cars), Matt Stone Racing and Team 18 (up to two cars), and the new two-car Team Sydney.
Kelly Racing has downsized to two cars, and will debut as a Ford team for the first time.
Moves confirmed and completed include Chaz Mostert to Walkinshaw Andretti United, Scott Pye to join the expanded Team 18, Jack Le Brocq to Tickford Racing, Todd Hazelwood to Brad Jones Racing and James Courtney to the new Team Sydney.
Dunlop Super2 champion Bryce Fullwood has been strongly linked to the unoccupied seat alongside Mostert at Walkinshaw Andretti United.
That leaves at least two drivers on the market - Tim Slade (ex-BJR) and James Golding (ex-GRM) currently without drives, with seats at Team Sydney and Matt Stone Racing still vacant, though Garry Jacobson has been linked to the first chair with the latter.
The Superloop Adelaide 500 takes place from 20-23 Febarury 2020. Tickets are on sale now
