Stadium Super Trucks return to the 2020 Superloop Adelaide 500.
In an exciting development for fans, the 2020 Superloop Adelaide 500 will host the opening round of the Stadium Super Trucks (SST) series, following their highly-anticipated return to Australia.
The popular category was confirmed as the first support category to race at the iconic Victoria Parklands street circuit from 20 – 23 February 2020, coinciding with the release of tickets on sale.
As a massive drawcard for families, exciting event goers of all ages, the high-flying trucks will see four days of action with two practice sessions confirmed for Thursday, followed by a qualifying session on Friday and a number of races across the weekend, ensuring all event-goers have the opportunity to witness the action.
Created by former IndyCar and NASCAR racer Robby Gordon, the American series has raced at Australian events since 2015, before a hiatus in May 2018 due to safety concerns raised by the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS).
Powered by a 600-hp Chevrolet LS V8 engine, the trucks weigh 1,300 kg and are built with a steel-tube frame and fibreglass body. All trucks feature a three-speed transmission, reaching speeds as high as 230 km/h. The SST series requires that all SST trucks are identically prepared and delivered to drivers in race-ready condition, with race winners decided by driver skill rather than individual team engineering and budgets.
The 22nd edition of the iconic Superloop Adelaide 500 will host the season-opener of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, alongside a number of off-track entertainment and attraction for fans of all ages.
The popular ‘Tracks of the World’ precinct will return bigger and better to showcase some of the most famous motorsport tracks and culture from around the world, while three big nights of concerts will ignite the post-race activity with acts to be announced in coming months.
Tickets for the 2020 Superloop Adelaide 500 are now on sale.
