Can't see how it would replace the street race as the street race is still delivering good outcomes for all concerned.

Equally, I suspect that an event at Tailem Bend might struggle to get corporate support within SA due to the strength of the street race and a great stadium in Adelaide. How many fans would venture out from Adelaide for more than one day is a concern too.

They'll have a few obstacles to overcome for the event to work commercially but they're building a huge facility so will be used to dealing with obstacles.

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Clipsal has a contract to 2021

To have any hope of being a replacement TB would need to show they can draw a crowd
