New role at Bathurst for Great Race winner

BATHURST 1000 winner Paul Dumbrell is returning to Mount Panorama this weekend for the first time since his last start in the ‘Great Race’ in 2018 – but not behind the wheel in the main race.

Dumbrell will join SEN’s Supercars radio coverage and call the Top 10 Shootout and 60th anniversary ‘Great Race’ at Bathurst alongside SEN’s lead Supercars caller, V8 Sleuth’s Aaron Noonan, with coverage on Saturday and Sunday.

SEN will broadcast live from Mount Panorama on Saturday from 4pm to 6pm AEDT with the Shootout for pole position and on Sunday for the race from 10am AEDT to the end of the 161-lap classic.

Dumbrell joins SEN’s coverage for the weekend filling in for Noonan’s regular co-commentator James Moffat, who will co-drive the #6 Monster Energy Tickford Mustang with Cam Waters in the big race.

Dumbrell is a veteran of 20 Bathurst 1000 starts from 1999 to 2018 and won the race in 2012 sharing a Triple Eight-run Vodafone Commodore with Jamie Whincup.

The duo will be reunited with their Bathurst-winning Holden this weekend in a pair of demo sessions, with Whincup set to drive on Saturday and Dumbrell on Sunday morning.

Dumbrell finished runner-up at Bathurst with Whincup in 2013, the same year the duo won their first of three Sandown 500s together.

The veteran of 150 Supercars Championship round starts is also a three-time winner of the Bathurst Super2 250km mini-endurance race in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

The SEN Bathurst radio coverage will be available across all SEN radio stations in Australia and New Zealand as well as available via the SEN App.
