Fair play on and off the Clipsal 500 track


The Adelaide street circuit was today bathed in glorious sunshine – with not a single sign of a strange cloud – for another day of good clean fun and, to the disappointment of most motor sport fanatics, clean racing.

The bumps and scrapes were kept to a minimum on the track, possibly contributing to the high level of crowd attention being turned to the dozens of trackside attractions at the Clipsal 500.

While some blokes struggled to get out of bed….

Fabian Coulthard and Chaz Mostert did their best to get their flying careers off the ground… But those enjoying themselves most appeared to be, for the second consecutive day, the ladies.

Sengled girls Faith Bernhardt and Olivia May.

Tania Cabot and Bec Burdon.

Helen Maynard, Andrea Maynard and Kaye Walter.

Julie Musolino and Samantha Tedmanson.

With so much to do around the circuit – ranging from getting a glimpse of a $4.2 million Aston Martin Supercar to drowning yourself in fairy-floss and jam donuts – we’ve cut through the pack cleaner than a charging Craig Lowndes to deliver Glam Adelaide’s Fast Five Things To See.

Here they are:

1 – Let’s face it, the best thing to do off the track is enjoy the trackside hospitality, including the famed Coopers 1862 Bar and a chat with Coopers Girls Monica Santoro, Abby Lavender, Oliva Adey and Emily Morris.

2 – Taking us back to holidays of old is the retro car and caravan display in the Oasis at Rymill Park.

3 – Honor the legends of motor sport on the Hall of Fame walk.

4 – The Chevy and Camaro display in the Gold Zone behind the Pit Straight Grandstand is a head-turner.

5 – Sky High entertainment with the Showtime FMX display in front of the Heritage Grandstand.
