Mark Beretta will headline Seven’s coverage of the Supercars Championship this year, starting with the Mount Panorama 500 at Bathurst on 27-28 February.

Co-hosting will be Abbey Gelmi, in her Supercars debut.

Other commentators include:

• Australian Rally Champion Molly Taylor, who will work alongside fan favourite Mark Larkham in pit lane
• Long-time Supercars driver Jack Perkins – son of motorsport legend Larry Perkins – who will provide expert commentary
• Australian cricket great and motorsport lover Brad Hodge, who will bring fans all the colour, excitement and characters at Mount Panorama

Neil Crompton, Mark Skaife, Craig Lowndes and Garth Tander will also be part of the coverage, along with Charli Robinson.

Managing Director Seven Melbourne and Head of Network Sport, Lewis Martin, said: “We’re counting down the days until the world’s greatest touring car championship returns to where it belongs, on Seven and 7plus.

“We are rapt to bring all Australians the passion, intensity, chaos and sheer excitement of V8 racing, with a fresh new commentary team that will give our new era of motorsport coverage a dynamic edge.

“There’s no better way to get things started than at Bathurst, the spiritual home of Australian motorsport.”

The Mount Panorama 500 is the first of six races in 2021 that will be broadcast live and free on Seven and live-streamed on 7plus. The season’s highlight comes in October when Supercars returns to Mount Panorama for the iconic Bathurst 1000.

Highlights from the other races of the Supercars Championship will be replayed on Seven and 7plus the same day of the race.

  1. $200 million over 5 years is alot for only 6/7 Live races per year ,I wonder if this will be well received ,still least they are showing highlights on the same day ,still Kayo is the way to go and Foxtel of course.

      1. Ah ok,well it’s the last year for Holden and the ZB Commodore ,the car that never came with a V8. I await for next year when the Commodore is replaced with the Camaro Z1 a car no longer available for sale in Australia due to the RHD conversion for our market and it’s expensive price , as to where the Ford Mustang was RHD direct from the factory.
