Supercars drivers to cruise Adelaide CBD

THE times and routes of the pre-Adelaide 500 transporter and driver parades have been made public, a fortnight out from track action at the event kicking off.

The popular transporter parade will take place on Tuesday November 21, with each team’s B-doubles rolling down King William Street at approximately 1pm ACDT en route to the Victoria Parklands Street Circuit.

Craig Lowndes will be at the front of the queue, with the winner’s trophy in tow.

“South Australians are so passionate about this event and I’m excited to get amongst the action as the Fanbassador and lead the transporter parade to signify the VAILO Adelaide 500 has really arrived in South Australia,” said Lowndes.

The next day, an event-first will see all 25 Repco Supercars Championship drivers take part in another parade through the city in MG open-top cars.

The field will depart from Gate 1 at the circuit and travel via the following route – Highway 500, Halifax Street, Hutt Street, Wakefield Street, Pulteney Street, North Terrace – before arriving at Rundle Mall for an all-in driver signing session from 12-1:30pm (November 22).

Cars from various categories will be on display at the signing session.

Track activity will then begin on Thursday, November 23.

“The transporter parade, drivers parade and drivers signing session are iconic Supercars events that make up the VAILO Adelaide 500 schedule,” said SA Motorsport Board CEO Mark Warren.

“It’s an awesome way for fans to connect with teams and drivers, as the anticipation and excitement builds before a huge four days of world-class motorsport and entertainment.

“You never know what we’re going to get – fans bring everything from hats to car doors to be signed by their Supercars heroes.”

This will be the first time the Adelaide Parklands venue has decided a Supercars title; Brodie Kostecki enters with a 131-point lead over Shane van Gisbergen.
