AARON NOONAN JOINS TEN MOTORSPORT

THE V8 SLEUTH JOINS THE TEAM FOR BATHURST AND NEWCASTLE …

V8 SLEUTH’S Aaron Noonan is joining Ten Motorsport for two of the upcoming big marquee events of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.

The 35-year-old motorsport veteran will join Matthew White, Mark Larkham, Mark Howard and Kate Peck for next weekend’s coverage of the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 at Mount Panorama and the season-closing Coates Hire Newcastle 500 in November.

Noonan will join Ten Motorsport for its three-day coverage of next weekend’s Bathurst classic on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, interviewing a range of drivers across the course of the event.

He’ll also continue his regular role commentating the keenly contested Toyota 86 Racing Series at Mount Panorama, which will have all sessions shown live on FOX Sports 506 and Race 2 on Saturday shown as part of the Ten coverage.

It’s part of a huge weekend for Noonan and the V8 Sleuth team, which has worked together with Supercars to bring a special collection of ‘Heroes & Legends’ race cars to this year’s Bathurst 1000 that will be on display in the paddock over the course of the four-day event.

The V8 Sleuth team will also have a merchandise stand in the ‘Heroes & Legends’ car display with its new ‘The Falcon Files’ publication available for purchase – a 240 page collector’s edition magazine covering the history of every V8 Supercar Ford Falcon from the last 25 years – as well as posters, prints, Bathurst race DVDs and other publications.

Noonan will also host a special sold-out Open Night on Thursday night in Bathurst with special guest Dick Johnson featuring a range of giveaways, food and fun.

“Bathurst is the event in full focus of our industry and the Australian sporting community in general, so to be involved with the Ten team for the biggest event of the year – plus the exciting debut Newcastle event – is fantastic,” he says.

“I go way back with Matty and Larko from our days together in the Supercar TV broadcasts, so I’m looking forward to teaming up with them again and bringing my insights and connection to the identities in the pit and paddock areas to the viewers at home.

“It’s going to be a massive week from the moment we depart Melbourne on Tuesday to when we roll back in on Monday evening!”

This year marks 10 years since V8 Sleuth’s Noonan made his Bathurst 1000 TV debut in pit lane as part of the Logie Award-winning 2007 telecast.
