2022 VALO Adelaide 500


The 2022 VALO Adelaide 500 V8 Supercar event (previously named the Adelaide 500 V8 Supercar Event) kicked off again in December 2022 in spectacular fashion after a Pandemic-forced hiatus.

During the Pandemic, the State Government cancelled the event indefinitely, but in 2022 after the formation of a new government in South Australia, the event was brought back to life with a goal of revitalising motorsport in the state. iEDM were once again engaged to deliver event infrastructure and overlay for what became a landmark moment in time for the sport.

With a short turnaround for bringing a project together under government systems, iEDM combined over 80 contractors to deliver large-scale, new overlay for the event as well as legacy works that included circuit resurfacing and upgrades as well as paddock and general service upgrades.

The outcome was filled with newsworthy glimpses of what motorsport in South Australia can deliver, dishing up some amazing moments once again with 20-year-old Broc taking the win in fantastic style, and Shane van Gisbergen’s epic on-track celebrations as he took the overall championship win. You can watch his classic celebration below:

The racing action was also supported by an amazing set of activations, as well as 3 nights of live music, peaking with a huge set from The Killers on Sunday night.
