Adelaide 500 medal tally: Every podium finisher
Saturday 19th March, 2022 - 6:00am
Fourty-six races. Fourteen winners. Twenty-eight podium finishers.
The South Australian state election today may well decide if this Adelaide 500 list is ever added to again.
That MoU was signed shortly after the event’s axing had been announced, and has created an unusually strong interest in South Australian politics ever since among the motorsport community.
Well, the time has come.
Malinauskas has progressively strengthened his position to now have promised to bring back the South Australian Motorsport Board, and to deliver a 2022 Adelaide 500 on December 1-4, if elected.
Having been the home of the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix from 1985-95, Adelaide first hosted a Supercars Championship event in 1999.
It remained a popular fixture on the calendar until its most recent running in 2020 – the last Supercars event before the COVID-19 pandemic swept Australia.
No driver has been more successful at the venue than Jamie Whincup, as seen below, but a wide array of names have walked away from the City of Churches with silverware.
Among the most remarkable results was Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport’s only win in Supercars, achieved by Nick Percat in the extreme wet in 2016, and the sole podium of Paul Weel’s main game career, in 2003.
Check out the full list of Adelaide 500 podium finishers below.
Will there ever be another name added? We might find out as soon as tonight…
