With Adelaide's Race of a Thousand Years now less than a month away, changes to roads around South Australia's internationally renowned street circuit begin tomorrow, Saturday, December 2.
Dequetteville Terrace will be restricted to two lanes each way from Saturday, through to January 14. "Brabham Straight" as Dequetteville Terrace is known, will not be closed for the Le Mans event until Sunday, December 24 through to Tuesday, January 2.
However, Bartels Road will remain open to vehicles right up until 6pm on the Thursday night prior to the first day of Le Mans Adelaide, Friday, December 29.
"We have worked very closely with the SA Motorsport Board to ensure the minimum amount of disruption is caused for Adelaide motorists," Le Mans Adelaide, Managing Director, Mr Dean Rainsford said.
"Having Bartels Road open still enables visitors to gain easy access to and from the city precinct."
Parking will be restricted on Bartels Road from Tuesday, December 26 through to Tuesday, January 2.
Other roads in the Race of a Thousand Years precinct will remain open until 3pm on Christmas Eve.
The Race of a Thousand Years will feature some of the finest sportscar drivers in the world doing battle on the streets of Adelaide.
Staged from December 29-31, the three-day festival also will feature Sports Sedans, the Le Mans Series Pro-Am for VW Beetles and the Sebring Cup for classic 60s sportscars.
The main event - the final round of the 2000 Le Mans Series - will kick off at 4pm on December 31, and finish at 10pm.
Two giant concerts will also welcome in the new year. INXS with Jon Stevens and Taxiride will perform on the Pitside Party stage behind the pit straight grandstand, while The Living End, Spiderbait and You Am I will perform on the New Year's Revolution stage on CBC Oval.
