VIDEO: Reigning Champ eyes off Adelaide prize.

Last year’s Adelaide 500 winner Shane van Gisbergen has his sights firmly set on fresh silverware when the 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship gets underway this weekend.

After narrowly missing out on the 2018 title, van Gisbergen is hungrier than ever, eager to get behind the wheel of his Red Bull Holden in Adelaide.

2015 champion, Mark Winterbottom makes his first race appearance in a Holden. Having spent his entire career with the blue camp, his defection to now drive a Commodore has been quite a talking point in the paddock. The 37-year-old says he’s impressed by the capabilities of the new car, following the recent pre-seaosn test.

All the action form the Superloop Adelaide 500 kicks off this Thursday.
