    The 2019 Adelaide 500 (known for commercial reasons as the 2019 Superloop Adelaide 500) is a motor racing event for the Supercars Championship held on Thursday 28 February through to Sunday 3 March 2019. The event was held at the Adelaide Street Circuit in Adelaide, South Australia, and marked the twenty-first running of the Adelaide 500. It wasl the first event of fifteen in the 2019 Supercars Championship and consisted of two races of 250 kilometres.[1] The race was supported by the opening round of the 2019 Super2 Series, a championship for older models of Supercars.[2]

    The race saw the competitive début of the Ford Mustang GT, which replaced the FG X Falcon.[3][4] The Adelaide 500 was the first time that a Mustang had competed in a round of the Australian Touring Car Championship since 1990.[5]

    McLaughlin's win in Race One was the first time that the Ford Mustang had won a race in the Australian Touring Car Championship since Allan Moffat won the final round of the 1972 season at Oran Park Raceway 46 years earlier - in that instance won in a Boss 302 Mk.1 edition.
