Clipsal 500 begins today - don't forget to slip slop slap!

02 March 2017

Mad March has begun, kicking off with the Adelaide Clipsal 500! Our fantastic St John SA personnel will once again be on the ground providing medical support for all of the car enthusiasts and rev heads having fun in the sun. This is St John SA’s biggest event of the year with over 140 St John SA personnel participating, providing over 3,000 hours of specialist medical care. We are so fortunate to have such dedicated and wonderful team!

The temperature is forecast for warm sunny days in the mid to low 30’s so be mindful to slip on a shirt, slop on some sunscreen, slap on a hat, seek shade and slide on those sunglasses! St John SA will have six medical tents where we will have plenty of sunscreen available for those who may have forgotten to pack their 50+!

Each tent also has a supply of daypacks made especially for events like the Clipsal 500. These handy daypacks include:
2 x sunscreen sachets
2 x cleansing wipes
1 x pack of 10 adhesive strips
1 x pair of earplugs

These daypacks are available for a gold coin donation where 100% of the proceeds go towards helping our volunteers continue their life saving work.

Should you need medical assistance during the Clipsal 500, there are 6 different St John Medical tent locations around the race track. We urge anyone feeling ill or injured to seek out our volunteers immediately for assistance. For a pdf version of this map, please click here.
