NEWS! Ivan Capelli and Leyton House returning to Adelaide

Ivan Capelli and the 1989 Leyton House CG891 (chassis #4) he drove at the Adelaide Motorsport Festival in 2016 will return to the event in 2018.

The Italian set a then-lap record of the Victoria Park Sprint Circuit on his return to Adelaide, joining fellow former Formula 1 drivers Stefan Johansson and Pierluigi Martini at the event.

Capelli is the second former Formula 1 driver confirmed for the 2018 event with Australian David Brabham bringing his new Brabham BT62 sportscar and the Brabahm BT58 Formula 1 car to Adelaide.

Capelli raced at the Adelaide Grand Prix in 1985 with Tyrrell and from 1987 to 1990 with Leyton House, scoring a best of fourth place in 1985.

The 2018 Adelaide Motorsport Festival will be held at Victoria Park on December 1 and 2.
