The Clipsal 500 Adelaide, a round of the Virgin Australia Supercar Championship, is Australia's largest domestic motor sport event.
The 2016 Clipsal 500 Adelaide was the eighteenth race to be held in Adelaide. First held in April 1999 as the Sensational Adelaide 500, it was staged as a motor racing event over 3 days until being extended to 4 days in 2003.
The 2016 event was attended by a crowd of 263,500 patrons over the four days and the event featured 3 V8 Supercars races and some of the most exciting V8 racing.
The significance of the Clipsal 500 Adelaide as an event of true national and international renown was highlighted in 2005 when the legendary motor sport authority Murray Walker, while visiting the event for the first time, described it as the ‘best touring car event in the world’.
