Todd Kelly in front at Clipsal 500  Todd Kelly has performed once again for the Holden racing team, winning the first leg of the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide today. Kelly beat off challenges from last year's winner Jamie Whincup and the in-form James Courtney to take the 250km event, the first of two races that culminates tomorrow.

It is the first race of the 2007 V8 Supercar Championship Series and Kelly, who lined up in a new billion dollar baby VE Commodore, said it was a good sign for things to come.

"To be honest I'm a little bit blown away," he said in a statement. "To maintain that momentum with a brand new car is unbelievable. The pace we had was just awesome."

It was a day of fast finishes, with second place-getter Courtney snatching the lap record away from Jason Richards (set last year), after relinquishing pole position early in the race. Kelly did things the hard way, working his way up from 15th after hitting an oil spill earlier in the day.
