MCLAUGHLIN SET FOR SUPERCARS TELEVISION ROLE

SUPERCARS champion Scott McLaughlin will return to the paddock for the first time since switching to IndyCar.

McLaughlin hinted at the development this afternoon, posting a photo of a 2022 Supercars access-all-areas pass under the Supercars Media banner.

Supercars Media is the arm which produces the championship’s broadcast, indicating he will appear in an on-the-ground television role at some stage this year.

It’s not yet clear which event(s) McLaughlin attend, with three rounds remaining after this weekend: the Repco Bathurst 1000 on October 6-9, Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 (October 28-30), and VALO Adelaide 500 (December 1-4).

McLaughlin left Supercars in October 2020 to pursue his full-time IndyCar dream in the United States.

He is now a three-time race winner in the American open-wheel series and an outside shot at the title.

The 29-year-old inked a multi-year contract extension with Team Penske during the week.
