The 2003 Clipsal 500 was the fifth running of the Adelaide 500 race. Racing was held from Friday 21 March until Sunday 23 March 2003. The race was held for V8 Supercars and was the opening round of the 2003 V8 Supercar Championship Series.

Format[edit]

The format, unique to V8 Supercars and loosely similar to the Pukekohe 500 format, split the total distance of 500 kilometres into two separate 250 kilometre races each held on a different day. Points were assigned separately to the races, with more points allocated for Race 2 over Race 1, and they combined to award a round result.
