TEN’s V8 Supercars season starts on Friday with the Clipsal 500, live from Adelaide with commentary by Matt White, Mark Webber, Alan Jones, Daryl Beattie, Rick Kelly and Mark Larkham.

TEN will feature six V8 Supercars Championship races: the Clipsal 500, Townsville 500, Sandown 500, Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, Gold Coast 600 and Sydney 500 plus highlights of other races to air on ONE and TEN on Saturdays and Sundays.

TEN Head of Sport, David Barham, said: “V8 Supercars are coming home to Network TEN in 2015, cementing our standing as the home of big event motorsport. Everyone at Ten is looking forward to bringing all the live action, thrills, drama and excitement of the biggest V8 Supercars events to all Australians on free-to-air television.

“Our expert commentary team – which includes Australian favourite, Mark Webber – ensures that our coverage of the V8 Supercars will be a first-class television experience for viewers.

“The return of the beloved magazine program RPM underlines our long-term commitment to motorsport. Week in, week out motorsport on TEN at Sundays, 4pm, clearly demonstrates our determination to deliver premium motorsport on free-to-air television,” he said.

  1. I’m with @Thaddeus. I’m getting sick of Ten’s marketing BS with regard to their supposed commitment to motorsport when they’ll be showing less than half of the V8 races, half the F1 races, no NASCAR, and no WRC.

    1. Seven wasn’t going to be much better at all as they were only going to be doing highlights for V8s. All races are shown from V8s and F1. Ten is televising the big events that rated well which make up 70% of the audience for V8s. We are going to get more comprehensive coverage then ever before for V8s for 6 big rounds. I am sure we will get the newest races live for F1. At least we get more better content then anywhere from the world on FTA. Be grateful that Ten is showing more rounds then any other country who have FTA component. NASCAR can still return in some shape or form like Formula E. WRC is been shown on Ten as it comes a part of their ARC deal

    1. As William says – yes. You prob want to know what this will mean as far as screentime. My understanding is that he will be calling qualy and the races on Ten & One. Not sure about practice sessions.

    1. He sure is. I disagree, Motorsport is a lot of work for him to do considering the amount of weeks he has to do per year. He can’t really do much else when Ten has Formula 1, MotoGP, V8s and RPM

  2. Ten loves to pull out the “long term commitment” line when it comes to any sports – V8, F1 and Netball, but with reduced coverage it seems the only “long term commitment” they like is the one with Foxtel.

  3. Set looks a bit Studio 10 esque with a similar couch, colours and set- I assume it’s filmed in the same studio in Pyrmont too? Look forward to seeing the latest incarnation of this show with Matt White at the helm.
