Latest post of the previous page:Adelaide 500 season opener to feature twilight sessions and races.
I see that there will be a change of format in next years season opening Superloop Adelaide 500 (previously known as the Clipsal!)
The idea is that now the V8s will be seen on all 4 days of the meeting (previously the Thursday was only for support categories) This is to allow the V8s to have twilight practice on Thursday and Friday in readiness for a Dusk start for the race on Saturday. Qualifying will be held after the Friday twilight practice. It is not so much a night race, with Saturday’s Supercars race starting nearly an hour later than last year.... Sunday’s race will remain in its usual afternoon time slot. Mind you inclement weather could make it more than a twilight situation.
Of course the meeting will also see the return of the Mustang name to Aussie Touring cars, with the Falcon now purely a memory.
It wont just be the main game featuring in twilight... Super2, the Audi Sport R8 LMS Cup and Aussie Racing Cars will be amongst the twilight action on Thursday, while Touring Car Masters, Super2 and Porsche Carrera Cup Australia are slated for twilight sessions on Friday.
I am not sure if that is an expanded support programme, because despite the later running of the day to get the twilight, action still starts on track at 9.30am every day. The inevitable utes racing is also on the card, just they seem not to allow them out after the sun goes down!
