NETWORK 10 motorsport program RPM will return to television screens this weekend for 2018 featuring a revamped line-up, new segments and regular appearances from drivers and team members along with a host of new features.

The show, now in its fourth series since its 2015 re-launch, will provide fans with an information packed hour of motorsport news with episode one set to feature a complete review of the last weekend’s Adelaide 500.

It airs on Ten at 4.00pm this Sunday – check your local guides for details for what remains as the only regular motorsport program on free-to-air television in Australia.

Matthew White will once again host the show alongside a range of regular panellists and guests providing news features from the Australian and international racing scene.

Our very own V8 Sleuth Aaron Noonan joins the RPM team this season for the first time and will host a weekly historical segment highlighting past events and interesting snippets of information from the sport’s rich history.

The show will also introduce the ‘RPM Regulars’ headed by Supercars commentator and Hall of Famer Neil Crompton, 2006 Supercars Champion Rick Kelly, two-time Bathurst winner Will Davison, Supercars reporter Riana Crehan and Mobil 1 Boost Mobile Racing endurance co-driver Jack Perkins.

In addition to the new line-up the show will connect with a range of international correspondents for the latest in Formula 1, MotoGP and other world motorsport news.

RPM first aired in 1997 on Network 10 and ran for 12 years with hosts Bill Woods, the late Barry Sheene and Greg Rust taking to our screens before the show made a one-year appearance in 2011 and returned again in 2015.

V8 Sleuth strives to both preserve and celebrate Australian motorsport’s rich history, from tracking and tracing the race-by-race histories and changing ownership of individual cars, to capturing and retelling the stories of the people who made our sport what it is today.
