The event was the first opportunity for drivers and spectators to sample Australia's first purpose-built stadium style SXS track. The Adelaide Motorsport Park venue combined large jumps and whoops, with switchbark turns and berms.

In 2018, SXS also debuted a brand new race format with the round winner determined by a grand final shoot out.
