Why do we get lumbered with this BS? No other sporting code does, they all get their experts / ex players etc etc. But motor racing gets stuck with any old peanut or eye candy ( except they usually aren't ) the network can round up.
Agreed on the FOX Coverage

I have no idea what Kate Peck brings to Tens coverage. cringe !

Please don't lose sight of the fact that Crompton, Skaife etc are all employed by Supercars TV NOT Ch 10

Exactly, the Supercars “commentators” are just PR mouthpieces for the series, they aren’t objective and therefore their commentary cannot be taken seriously m

Much better when the TV channels themselves did the production and chose the on-air talent and what was to be aired and discussed, not the series itself

Yeah let's get Darryl Eastlake, Doug Mulray and others like them back.

We should definitely get Crompton back if that is your criteria.

And anybody who thinks someone like Noonz is more impartial than the Supercars TV crew obviously didn't watch the TCR coverage,he blew the trumpet so hard I think he blew a gasket.

I always wished a professional caller like James Brayshaw would do motorsport, but I do think Noonz has that old school style that I like, and his background knowledge and statistics are off the chart. I would have him on every series I watch.

I never claimed Noonan was impartial on the TCR coverage, I don’t know who paid the TCR commentators though?

Eastlake and Mulray were at least impartial, they weren’t being paid by the category they were calling.

I reckon he is a great caller and is a professional in that he can provide analysis and commentary on both AFL and Cricket.

I guess he was a cricketer, and is an AFL club CEO

come to think of it, imagine if Roland Dane was in commentary ever week.

Supercars commentators are light years ahead of Eddie Everywhere...

The guys that do the 12 hour, and in addition, Matt Naulty, would absolutely nail the commentary team . . . informative, excitable, and non biased.

If you mean Richard Crail then he has the advantage of being enthusiastic but his tiresome habit of describing every driver as a "superstar" or some other equally inane superlative is almost enough for this viewer to switch off.

12hrs commentators not biased????

Craill - media manager of the entire event
Hindy & Jonny Palmer - Radioshow is hired by Supercars Media to commentate on a Supercars Events organised race

Shea Adam is with Radioshow and Chad Neylon is with Supercars media

The impartial parts of the commentary on the 12hr telecast was Chris Stubbs, Mark Beretta and Charlie Robinson!!

The uncertainty in the series past 2020 might make it hard to get what they might have wanted before today’s Holden announcement.

Spot on.

And the incessant references to Supercars and the Bathurst 1000 was tiresome. You had Matt Campbell and Van Gisburgen running nose to tail with 10mins left after 12 hours and Craill wants to wax lyrical about the time they raced a v8 car together?

And how many times did he roll out the “some guy called Lowndes, have you heard of him? I think he might be fast” or “some guy called Dixon, he might of won a few things, I’m not sure” “haha yeah the boys, did you see what I did there!” So tiresome and someone probably needs to deliver a quiet word to him ASAP. Or better yet get Noonan in there.

There real star of the commentary team was Johnny Palmer, well balanced, informative and not trying to pat himself on the back whilst commentating

More than any other sport motor racing has a problem with pr hype masquerading as commentary.I’m not sure if they realise that most of their audience sees through this and they all finish up with zero credibility.
An exception would be the Sky Sports F1 team that are not too timid to be critical where warranted.
