The Clipsal 500 Adelaide will return to its original two-race format next year, creating a more competitive and adrenaline-filled environment for drivers and motorsport fans.
The Saturday Supercars race will feature one 250km race – a shift that will encourage strategy-led fuel stops, tyre changes and much greater competition.
The move returns the event to its historical race format, after the Saturday program was split three years ago, to incorporate two 125km quick-form races.
