Fans will be given up close and personal experiences when Supercars teams and drivers descend on Adelaide’s city streets ahead of the Supercars Championship decider at the VAILO Adelaide 500.
The streets of Adelaide will ignite as the iconic Supercars’ Transporter Parade kicks off event week with the team’s transporters making their official arrival to town on Tuesday 21 November.
The procession of team’s B-Double transporters will commence their journey at 12:15pm, and thunder down King William Street at around 1:00pm before entering the Victoria Parklands Street Circuit at 1:10pm.
Supercars legend & 2023 event ‘Fanbassador’ Craig Lowndes OAM will also lead the parade, delivering the winner’s trophy to town.
Then, we will see two huge fan favourite events combine with the Driver’s Parade and Driver Signing Sessions taking over the city on Wednesday 22 November.
For the first time ever, all 25 Supercars drivers will cruise through the streets of Adelaide in MG open top cars for the official Driver’s Parade, departing from Gate 1 of the VAILO Adelaide 500 event precinct and arriving at Rundle Mall, via Gawler Place.
The parade route will travel along Highway 500, Halifax Street, Hutt Street, Wakefield Street, Pulteney Street, North Terrace, before arriving at Rundle Mall.
On arrival at Rundle Mall, the full Supercars field will present for the official 2023 VAILO Adelaide 500 Drivers Signing Session from 12:00pm – 1:30pm.
Fans will have a chance to interact with their favourite drivers and get their memorabilia and Official Event poster (available on the day) signed, with Jason Snowy Carter and Matt Naulty hosting the celebrations.
A display of Supercars and support category cars that will line up on the grid at the VAILO Adelaide 500 will also feature at the signing session event.
VAILO Adelaide 500 Chief Executive Mark Warren said: “The Transporter Parade, Drivers Parade and Driver’s Signing session are iconic Supercars events that make up the VAILO Adelaide 500 schedule.
It’s an awesome way for fans to connect with teams and drivers, as the anticipation and excitement builds before a huge 4-days of world-class motorsport and entertainment.
You never know what we’re going to get – fans bring everything from hats to car doors to be signed by their Supercars heroes,” said Mark Warren.
2023 VAILO Adelaide 500 Fanbassador Craig Lowndes OAM said: “South Australians are so passionate about this event and I’m excited to get amongst the action as the Fanbassador and lead the Transporter Parade to signify the VAILO Adelaide 500 has really arrived in South Australia.”
The VAILO Adelaide 500 will take place from 23 – 26 November, 2023.
