The main gate opens to the public at 8:45am AEDT.
WHAT TIME DOES THE TESTING START?
The schedule for the day has testing starting at 9am AEDT. In the past, virtually every team heads out on track as soon as the traffic light at the end of pit lane turns green.

WILL EVERY TEAM BE TESTING IN THEIR 2019 LIVERIES?
Not quite. Boost Mobile Racing (nee GRM) will run a testing livery on Richie Stanaway and James Golding’s cars before revealing their 2019 look on the eve of the Superloop Adelaide 500, while the #7 Kelly Racing Altima of Andre Heimgartner will also have its final livery revealed ahead of the season opener.
