This is true, I did more study on this and I found out that Clipsal 500 brings more people to Adelaide for the next 7 years. This information was done through the tourism SA website and I also found that the income that Adelaide receives is $26 million dollars.

Through this I can see that everybody overall enjoyed Clipsal 500 regardless of the gender. * Research an operator involved with the Clipsal 500 I researched an operator who was involved with the Clipsal 500 and was working at VB tent. The VB tent's main business is selling beer. They are from the UK. They said they tried to use South Australian products and have had a stand at the Clipsal 500 before. They said it was the most important event in SA that they participate in. The VB tent usually employs 1500 people. 1000 of them are casual employees. It is very important to Australia economy. They expect to make less than $50 000 in overall incomes. ...read more.

For one month of the year, they are covered with advertisements all three together in a four-day spectacular. And, in the Clipsal 500, there were not many toilets for visitors.
