The simulations strongly suggest it won't increase overtaking chances. More likely the opposite.

I'd rather see the GP at a proper circuit. Phillip Island, Eastern Creak or Talem Bend would be epic.

I would far prefer the event to take place at Bathurst. I believe that it would severely test the drivers.

Mike, i'm not sure if you knew about when Jenson Button came out with a McLaren F1 (V10) to do a Vodafone car swap thing with a V8SC. He put in a few laps in the F1 car as well as V8SC laps.

On board the F1 car: https://youtu.be/fZXdW7j64FE

Jenson commented that it was very bumpy, indeed too bumpy to race on. He enjoyed it though.

Some other non onboard footage of him at Bathurst and comments.
https://youtu.be/NHvkhlP4XUU

Oh and (obviously) he broke the outright lap record by some 15+seconds IIRC

Back in the day from the thirties to late fifties of course Bathurst was used a few times for the Australian GP in its non championship days

Not going to happen. SA government binned off the Supercars event in the city, presumably as a result of the money they've indeed at The Bend Motorsport Park.

They gave many other reasons based on the costs of running the event, but the Adelaide branding is all over the Bend now.

I know my wife's rellies who live in the city are very pleased that they don't get the travel disruption any more!

I think also that the old extended GP circuit (the Supercars only used a shortened version) now has a lot of redevelopment going on that has resulted in some roads used now being either not there or re-routed.

The current State government opposition have vowed, if voted in, to get the (Supercars) race back on..... obviously as much as residents may object to tens of thousands of extras around the city, the local traders, hotels and restaurants loved it.

Last time I checked, the roads are still there on the old extended version. There might even be some kerbs still there

I think the redevelopment of the Old Brewery into apartments has happened since the extended circuit was last used? Getting approval to run motorsport along Rundle Road onto Dequetteville seems unlikely.

Would there be any (genuine) appetite to spend money upgrading to FIA 1?
I know the owners say they might, but what return would they want for doing so?

Even if they did getting a track layout to F1 standard is only a very small part of running a Grand Prix.The location of The Bend means it couldn’t handle movement of Albert Park sized crowds in and out of the venue even if the state government was willing to fund the whole thing.
Also as much as I loved Adelaide at the time-and I went to all the Grand Prix there except for the last one-it had pretty much outgrown the venue 25 years ago.Think of F1 around St Petersburg and that’s pretty much what F1 around Adelaide would be like now.
