Two rebuilt cars have shared the track following the dramatic Gold Coast chicane crash.

A suite of talent — led by Shane van Gisbergen and Chaz Mostert — treated members and corporate guests to hot laps.

Penrite Racing and WAU repaired their respective cars in time for Tuesday's ride day.

Holdsworth and Percat both got behind the wheels of their cars.

Four other cars — those of James Golding, Macauley Jones, Todd Hazelwood and Broc Feeney — also picked up major damage in the crash.

Triple Eight opted to run its Bathurst wildcard chassis, complete in Supercheap Auto livery, at the ride day.


That car — chassis 888A-053 — will now head to PremiAir Racing to be transformed in Golding’s Adelaide racer.

The Red Bull Ampol squad opted for 888A-053 for the ride day amid repairs to Feeney’s car.

Mostert leads van Gisbergen on Tuesday

Golding’s usual Commodore — chassis 888A-044 — sustained too much damage to be repaired in time for Adelaide.

The VALO Adelaide 500 will be the final main game starts for the current field of cars.

The Gen2 cars will have a second lease of life in the Dunlop Series, with ZB Commodores and Mustangs to race in Super2.

The cars will be succeeded by Chevrolet Camaros and seventh-generation Ford Mustangs in Supercars next year.

Supercars revealed the test dates for teams’ Gen3 cars on Tuesday.

Tickets for the December 1-4 VALO Adelaide 500 are on sale on Supercars.com and Ticketek.com.
