V8 Supercars Battle it Out in Adelaide Clipsal 500

Craig Lowndes and defending V8 Supercars champ, Rick Kelly are set to do battle for line honours at the Adelaide Clipsal 500 today in qualifying sessions. The Adelaide Clispal 500 takes place this weekend in Adelaide and is one of the major highlights of the V8 Supercar calendar. Today also sees the debut of the new Holden VE Commodore in V8 Supercar racing at Adelaide.

Defending V8 Supercars champion Rick Kelly will look to gain the advantage over rival Craig Lowndes in today's Adelaide street circuit qualifying sessions.

More than 30 cars and drivers will be involved, with the main races set to take place tomorrow and Sunday, and event spokesman Mike Drewer said the Lowndes-Kelly rivalry was still on from last season.

"They've got qualifying at a little after two o'clock, and it'll be really on in terms of those qualifying sessions particularly between reigning champion Rick Kelly, and of course his arch rival Craig Lowndes,"

"[They are] looking forward to a very, very big day at the circuit." ~ ABC SA News
