V8 Supercar driver Tim Slade visits Pit Straight marking the ’50 days to go’ milestone ahead of the 2014 Clipsal 500 Adelaide.

To celebrate the Clipsal 500 ‘50 days to go’ milestone V8 Supercar driver, Tim Slade took time out of his gruelling training regime to get reacquainted with the Clipsal 500 track as he prepares to kick-start his 2014 campaign with new team Supercheap Auto Racing.


The former South Australian said he loves coming back to race in front of his home crowd and is looking forward to the new racing format and the circuit’s first ever twilight race.

“This year’s Clipsal 500 is going to be one of the most exciting in the race’s history and I can’t wait. Two starts, two finishes on the Saturday and I think we’ll see a lot more aggressive racing overall.

125km is a really good distance – it’s long enough to ensure positions on the track will most certainly change but short enough that drivers will have to really race the entire time which is ultimately what the fans want,” Slade said.


The exciting new format also includes a totally new evening race schedule with the first of the 39 lap V8 Supercars events currently scheduled to start around 4pm. The second V8 Supercar race for Saturday is scheduled to start around 7pm and finish just before 8pm as the sun sets low over the Adelaide parklands circuit.

Sunday’s race format will see the V8 Supercars lining up for qualifying, the top ten shoot out and the final 250 kilometre leg of the Clipsal 500 Adelaide. On Friday, fans will be treated to a host of race action in the evening with Aussie Racers, Touring Car Masters, Dunlop Series and Porsche Carrera Cup all on show after 5pm.


Clipsal 500 CEO, Mark Warren, said the new racing format will create more excitement, more drama and even closer competition.

“This wasn’t a decision we made lightly. We took into consideration extensive feedback from our fans who felt V8 Supercar racing needed a shake-up. The idea of two shorter races was well received as it provides more starts and finishes, and more on-track action and entertainment for fans”, Warren said.

With the new racing format, fans will get to see two V8 Supercar race starts, two finishes, and the drivers going flat out with valuable Championship points awarded for each 125 kilometre race on Saturday afternoon and evening. The race will also see the debut of Volvo into the competition which is another first for Adelaide.”
