Clipsal 500 Sponsors Vietnam Swans Grand Final Party!

Posted by Vietnam Swans on September 17, 2009

Action, energy, excitement, glamour… just some of the adjectives we can use to describe the Vietnam Swans Grand Final Parties. And so too for our latest sponsor  - the .

The Clipsal 500 Adelaide, Australia’s largest and most successful domestic motor race event, has very generously sponsored two 4-day passes for the Monster Raffle at the Vietnam Swans 2009 AFL Grand Final Party, Saigon. Bring that right on!

The Clipsal 500 Adelaide is one round of the V8 Supercar Championship Series and, on four occasions, has been selected as the nation’s best major festival or event at the National Tourism Awards. The event has also been titled as ‘the world’s best touring car event’ by none other than international motor racing icon, Murray Walker.

More than a motor race, the Clipsal 500 Adelaide is a four day carnival featuring the best in V8 Supercar racing, the nation’s best feature races, four on circuit concerts free to all ticketed patrons, fashion parades, beachwear parades, an air show, stunt demonstrations, family areas, and the Murray Walker Extreme Machines car display featuring the finest and most expensive automobile exotica from around the world.

The event is conducted on the world’s finest city street circuit (formerly used for the Formula 1 Grand Prix) that now includes a three level temporary pit building for V8 Supercar teams, media, race officials, and corporate guests. In addition, all grandstands are now under shade.

The 2010 event is scheduled for 11-14 March. This date is subject to ratification by the world motorsport authority, the Federation Nationale d’Automobile (FIA).

As it happens, Jason Allen, the CEO of the Clipsal 500 Adelaide (and a mate of Swannie, Nick Shiells) visited Saigon in June of this year. Jason was so impressed with the Swannies that he has since written to one of his friends in the media saying (see link on this website for full story):

I met a terrific group of expat Australians in Saigon.

The bond to all of these guys was AFL, a Club, having a kick, mateship and above all their love for Australia. I am an avid AFL supporter, however these guys take it to another level. Playing footy in the conditions they do, travelling in between countries for the Asian Cup at their own expense, representing our magnificent game and country and promoting a game that is obviously unfamiliar in this region inspired me.

The Vietnam Swans thank the Clipsal 500 Adelaide very much for their generous support. We also thank them, most sincerely, for reminding all of us non-Crows supporters that good things can come out of Adelaide!
