The party that is the OTR Super Sprint will come all the way into Tailem Bend's main street next Thursday evening.

A super street party planned on Railway Terrace from 3pm will ensure the second annual running of the Supercars race will be even more exciting than the first.

Drivers including Scott McLaughlin, Tim Slade, Todd Hazelwood, Shane van Ginsbergen, Mark Winterbottom and Rick Kelly will be on hand to sign merchandise.

Food, market stalls, a kids' zone, gaming simulators, mini golf, a treasure trail and live entertainment will also be on offer.

The event is being organised by Tailem Bend RSL, with support from the Coorong council, more than 50 community organisations and businesses, and a host of volunteers.

RSL sub-branch president Chris Taylor invited everyone to come on down.

"Even if you can't make it to the main racing event, the street party (will be) a great way to get a taste of the atmosphere and an opportunity to have a fun time out in our community by supporting the event and local sponsors," he said.

"Already we have exceptional support from the community, who have offered incredible in-kind donations estimated to be worth at least $15,000.

"This will help encourage thousands of supportive locals and interested visitors to join us on the day."

He thanked all volunteers and community members for the work they had put in already.
