Adelaide axed from Supercars calendar
The South Australian Tourism Commission (SATC) confirms Adelaide 500 axing following a challenging year with COVID19.

"South Australia is one of the premiere event locations in the nation and globe, and we will continue to invest in a range of sporting, cultural and arts events to stimulate the visitor economy." said SATC chief executive, Rodney Harrex.

"Due to the high level of uncertainty around the ability of the event to proceed in 2021, the likely impact on the event for both the consumer and commercial market, and the long-term decline in the core motorsport fan, a decision has been made that it will not be possible to hold the race next year, and to not seek a contract for future years.

"We have been in discussions with Supercars for the majority of this year, working through possible scenarios. At the end of the day, with the current set of circumstances we are not in a position to deliver a sustainable, successful future for the event for next year and beyond.

"This was not an easy decision to make. The Superloop Adelaide 500 has been part of our event landscape since 1999.

"We have a terrific world-class motor racing facility at The Bend. We are very fortunate to have had significant private investment in that circuit, and we already know the motoring faithful are keen to support ongoing races there."

Supercars issued this brief statement

The South Australian Government has communicated its decision to no longer conduct the Adelaide 500.

Supercars have enjoyed racing at this event since 1999.

We regret that the South Australian Government has decided to cease holding this event.

Supercars are looking forward to providing our fans with an exciting 2021 Championship across Australia and New Zealand.

If at any time in the future, the South Australian Government decides to recommence the Adelaide 500, Supercars would be delighted to be there.
