The Asian Le Mans Series is the reference endurance racing series for prototypes and GT classes in Asia. The race is run by the Automobile Club de I’Ouest (ACO). Founded in 1906, it is one of the oldest cars clubs in the world.
The Series offers the regions only direct pathway into World Championships for both Prototype and GT race cars, and into the world’s most significant endurance race – the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
With a top speed of 343.4 km/h recorded in the LMP2 class in the 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans, it is safe to say the lap record on The Bend circuit will be broken. Outside the Formula 1 cars, the LMP2 cars at the front of the Asian Le Mans Series will be the fastest to compete in Australia in 2020.
This will mark the first time that LMP vehicles have raced in South Australia in 20 yearsVisit website

About the Stage Stage 4 sets out from Norwood under neutral before commencing the popular ascent into the Adelaide Hills via Gorge Road. This stage is straightforward and will suit a sprint finish.
After the Gorge Road climb, riders will traverse a lumpy profile to Kersbrook before ascending to Williamstown and veering south to Mount Pleasant.
The final 5.4% climb at Mount Torrens (Cyanide Climb) is a reasonable 5.4% average, and is the curtain-raiser to a downhill out of the Hills and to the Murray River, where riders hit Mannum before pushing out the final 30km to finish in Murray Bridge.
Remember when? The Tour finished in Murray Bridge? If you can, count yourself among the top fanatics of Australia’s Greatest Cycling Race – because that was way back in 2001 when Italian Fabio Sacchi (Saeco Macchine Per Caffé) claimed honours at the line in a sprint finish. 2020 will be the first time the town has hosted a finish of the race as a WorldTour event.Visit website
Dates and times: January 24.
Murray Bridge sees the return of women’s racing for the first time since 2018 as the host town of Novatech Stage 2 of the Santos Women’s Tour Down Under. This stage is full of climbing, heading from the Murray into the Adelaide Hills via Nairne and Balhannah, before taking the road to Birdwood at Mount Torrens.
Upon reaching Birdwood, the peloton will head east to Gumeracha and Kersbrook before taking the road less-travelled – Christmas Tree Ridge at Forreston – a debut climb with a maximum 11% grade before the finish back in Birdwood.
Dates and times: January 17.
