Adelaide Clipsal 500 remains the best V8 Supercar event in Australia
South Australia's V8 Supercar fest has for the eighth time been recognized as Australia's best domestic motor sport event
South Australia's V8 Supercar fest has for the eighth time been recognized as Australia's best domestic motor sport event.
Award number eight comes after the 'Clipsal 500' was inducted into the V8 Supercars Hall of Fame in 2005: that recognition made the race ineligible for the award for a period of three years.
Speaking at the V8 Supercar award ceremony held in Sydney last week, South Australian Motor Sport Board Chairman Mr Andy Ford paid tribute to the SA Government, retired Chairman Mr Roger Cook, the Board, management, and staff, and "all South Australians".
Mr Ford said that the contribution of naming rights sponsor Clipsal and the motor sport volunteer officials had also been vital to the ongoing success of the event.
Former South Australian Motor Sport Board Chairman Roger Cook was also individually recognized with an Appreciation of Service award.
This year's award winning Clipsal 500 Adelaide which attracted 270,800 attendees and contributing $34.03 million over the four days, welcomed its three millionth spectator in the thirteen year history of the race.
The Clipsal 500 Adelaide team was now well advanced for the staging of next year's event as Round One of the 2012 V8 Supercars Championship on the first weekend of March.
The theme for next year's event is "The Race That Rocks" with officials determined to once again make it the best in the business.
