Supercars has announced an historic agreement to secure the Adelaide 500 as the final race of the Supercars championship for the next five years.

The agreement has been signed by Premier Peter Malinauskas, SA Motorsport Board chief executive Mark Warren and Supercars chief executive officer Shane Howard in Adelaide today.

The agreement locks in the return of the Adelaide 500 from December 1-4 this year and the subsequent four events – all of which will serve as the grand finale to the Supercars Championship.

Supercars have also committed to hosting its end of season gala awards night on the Monday following the Adelaide 500 for the next five years.

This provides certainty for the government and Supercars as well as all of the businesses, contractors and workers who rely on the event.

In 2019, the Adelaide 500 attracted more than 250,000 people, and generated more than $45 million in economic activity. The event attracted 15,000 interstate and international visitors and supported 90,000 visitor bed nights.


Shane Howard, Supercars CEO

“The Adelaide 500 is a spectacular event that showcases South Australia to a huge national and international audience and will be a fitting finale to the Repco Supercars Championship for the next five years.”

“I want to thank Premier Malinauskas, the South Australian Government, Mark Warren and the SA Motorsport Board for their unwavering support and reviving this event to recreate what will be five incredible years of racing in Adelaide.”
