The television team will feature the return of an international flavour in the form of the Radio Show Ltd’s John Hindhaugh and Shea Adam.

Hindhaugh will join Garth Tander and Richard Craill in the commentary box while Adam will team up with Chad Neylon and Mark Beretta in the pit lane, as Matt Naulty takes the lead on supports.

“The world returning to Mount Panorama is a theme for this year’s race and it’s as true on track as it is in our broadcast,” said Supercars head of television David Tunnicliffe.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming back our international voices after a few years away to truly capture the international nature and spirit of the event.

“It’s a great team with lots of experience covering this race and they will work throughout to explain, inform and entertain as the day unfolds on Sunday.

“Having the current Repco Bathurst 1000 winner within the team will only add to it – there are few better who know about winning endurance races at Bathurst than Garth Tander.

“We’re thrilled to be live for 17 hours across Fox Sports and the Seven Network around Australia, and our streaming partners around the world taking the international coverage.”

A 28-car field has been confirmed for the event, with a growing international contingent headlined by MotoGP superstar Valentino Rossi.
