How to watch V8 Supercars Superloop Adelaide 500 live and free

Posted: 22 February 2020 8:50 am

Nissan has bowed out of V8 Supercars, leaving traditional rivals Holden and Ford to battle it out for supremacy, starting with the Superloop Adelaide 500.

SUMMARY: The best option to watch V8 Supercars live is through Kayo Sports, though the Superloop 500 will also be broadcast on Channel 10. You can watch the entire Adelaide 500 for free using this 14-day trial. This gets you access to all its unique features and 50 additional live sports.

A name change from Clipsal to the Superloop Adelaide 500 may still not be accepted by some. Nevertheless, the street circuit still marks the first race on the calendar of the V8 Supercars season.

The event is staged over 4 days and culminates in twin 250km races on Saturday and Sunday. A total of 24 drivers will compete over the weekend with everyone chasing Scott McLaughlin, who won both races at the South Australian circuit in 2019.

When is the Superloop Adelaide 500?

The season-opening event takes place from 20–23 February. It starts with practice and pre-qualifying sessions on Thursday and Friday. The main event is split over 2 days, with qualifying and then 250km races on both Saturday 4:20pm (AEDT) and Sunday 3:20pm.

There are 14 races in this year's series, down 1 from last year. Kayo Sports and Foxtel have access to every race throughout the season live and ad free courtesy of Fox Sports. Channel 10 will also be showing the Adelaide 500, but not all events.

Watch Adelaide 500 on Channel 10

Channel 10 only has the rights to half of this year's V8 Supercars campaign. The free-to-air networks coverage is also limited. Channel 10 only has access to some of the development series such as the Stadium Super Trucks.

Channel 10's broadcast also won't include qualifying on Saturday. Their coverage begins at 12:30pm (AEDT) with the Top 10 shootout. Another important factor is you can't stream Supercar races live via 10 Play.

Who will win the Superloop Adelaide 500?

Scott McLaughlin is on one heck of a roll in the V8 Supercars series. Last year he claimed a first Bathurst 1000 crown to add to his second consecutive series triumph in his Ford Mustang GT.

The New Zealander recently impressed in an IndyCar test in the United States and appears destined for bigger and better things in the motorsport arena. It's hard to see anyone getting the better of him this weekend.

Although it would be nice to see some competitive Holdens on the track following the shock announcement General Motors will stop producing the iconic brand in 2021.
