The Adelaide 3 Hour Race
2019 date to be advised
First run in 2010, the Adelaide 3 Hour is a relay race for teams.
The race has a Le Mans start where riders have to sprint across the track to get to their waiting bikes. Over the next 3 hours, teams will complete approx 380Kms of the circuit only stopping to change riders. The race is also contested by Solo riders where the amount of time spent in pit lane can decide the winner of that category.
Once considered a reliability test for bikes, distance racing is now more a test of the riders endurance to stay focused and maintain lap times. In 2018 the race was moved back to April as the hot weather in November was becoming a problem.
The 3 Hour race starts at approx 1pm on Sunday with practice sessions and support events in the morning.
Saturday is a full day of racing for all the usual Classes and most 3 Hour riders will compete as part of their preparation. Two distance events with Le Mans starts are also held on Saturday; the 75Km for Supersport/Superbikes and the 50Km for other classes.
We thank the following companies for their support of this event.
