QuoteSTABLE SUPERCARS TV COMMENTARY TEAM

Stable. Isn't that where they keep a horse's arse.?

https://autoaction.com.au/2024/02/20/stable-supercars-tv-commentary-team

At least they have relegated Lowndes to the supports. He's probably the biggest waste of TV money ever.

Now if we could just lock the main commentary door after Crompo, Chad & GT go in the year will be tolerable.

It's a shame that 'tolerable' is the benchmark.

I like Crompo in the box calling the race.
He needs a Leigh Diffey or even Matt White beside him, Chad Neylon might be the right guy too - someone impartial and without direct (Supercars) hands-on Motorsport history. Someone whos profession is 'commentary,' and can appeal moreso to the broad public.

Larko and GT in the pits are great. Lowndes has been a bit of a dud, not clinical enough.

Then the talking heads between each session and doing interviews could be your character type's, your Skaife/Ingall/Murphy/Ambrose - literally the V8 SuperStars cast. Even a Fabian Coulthard or Michael Caruso would be good IMO.
They can give both mechanical and driver insight, along with some banter. Talking the hypothetical stuff.
Courtney and Reynolds may fill this role, if they add a touch of seriousness to their work.

I think Jack Perkins does a good job

Does anyone really expect that the cars, as presented, will really be the same as the actual race cars, particularly aero?

A few have adopted something similar to Mercedes, the high and skinny sidepod, opposed to the low and wide.

I still think RB will run away, but as usual the battle for 2nd looks strong!
