Thunder reverberated on the streets of Adelaide last week as the biggest show on wheels came out to leave tyre on tarmac at the Clipsal 500. The brutal and always aggressive V8 ute racing series made its 13th showing in Adelaide, where the series first began in 2001; showcasing who’s who in up and coming race talent, with the weekends racing exploits proving no exception to the raw close quarters spectacle V8 ute fans have come to expect.


The power sliding, fender buckling 2013 opener saw Nathan ‘Nitrous’ Petty (pictured above) take an early point’s lead in his Holden SS, claiming stout victories in races one and three and winning the round ahead of Ford's Andrew Fisher and Holden's Rhys McNally.


Kris Walton took the top spot in race two in the blue ovals finest, amid penalties, spins, drifts and quite a few of the field taking time to leave some livery on the wall on turn eights outside barriers. Check out the V8 skirmish from the final race below.


‘Nitrous’ Petty wasn’t the only with exciting news from the Adelaide round, with the XFORCE team out in full strength over the course of the Clipsal 500, following the recent announcement of the long-time V8 series sponsors further investing themselves in the sport as the new official exhaust supplier of the V8 ute racing series.


As of round two in 2013, XFORCE will have their renowned custom exhausts fitted to every ute in the 32 car SS and XR8 dominated field. The bespoke exhaust systems will offer series fans an XFORCE tuned aural sensation, and the racing utes even greater on-track performance. With the racing series ute’s next turning tyres in anger in WA at Barbagallo raceway in early May, punters are advised to begin prepping their senses for the howl of soon to be XFORCE equipped race spec V8s. Check out Sam Tapping’s SS ute competing in Targa Tasmania packing XFORCE power for a sample of that beautiful patent XFORCE sound.
