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.
