Seven screens the Mount Panorama 500 will be broadcast live on Saturday and Sunday.
Mark Beretta will headline Seven’s Supercars coverage in 2021.
Joining him will be co-host Abbey Gelmi, Australian Rally Champion Molly Taylor and Australian cricketer and motorsport lover Brad Hodge – making their Supercars commentary debut plus long-time Supercars driver Jack Perkins, son of motorsport legend Larry Perkins. Motorsport icons Neil Crompton, Mark Skaife, Craig Lowndes and Garth Tander will also be part of the coverage, along with fan favourite Mark Larkham in pit lane.
Managing Director Seven Melbourne and Head of Network Sport, Lewis Martin, said: “This Saturday marks the start of a bold new era of not just motorsport but Australian sport in general, as Supercars returns to its rightful home, the Seven Network.
“The 2021 Supercars season is shaping up as an absolute thriller. The championship race is the most wide-open in a long time, while sports fans won’t want to miss their last chance to see Jamie Whincup in action before he signs off on one of touring cars’ most legendary careers.
“With Mark Beretta leading an unbeatable new commentary team full of fresh faces, we can’t wait to bring all Australians the passion and non-stop action only Supercars racing offers,” he said.
