Live hosting role confirmed on SBS telecast for the Sleuth

WHILE the V8 Supercars Championship doesn’t begin until the end of February, V8 Sleuth Aaron Noonan won’t be sitting around waiting until then to hit the race track.

The popular motorsport TV host and commentator has signed to spearhead the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour TV coverage on Sunday February 9 on SBS.

He will host the first live TV coverage of the event on free-to-air television since the event was revived in 2007. It will be produced by AVE of Sydney.

The final three hours of the 12 hour GT race will be televised live on SBS, while the full race will be streamed online and free to fans via the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour website.

Noonan is no stranger to the Bathurst 12 Hour event. He has previously hosted and commentated the race’s post-produced highlights program on the Seven Network and hosted and commentated its last live TV coverage on Fox Sport’s SPEED in 2012.

Over 50 cars – 20 of them in the outright GT3 category – have entered for the 2014 race.

V8 Supercar stars Craig Lowndes, Jason Bright, Rick Kelly, Steven Richards and Will Davison will be among an impressive international racing roster of pilots.

The 2014 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour will start at 6.15am on Sunday February 9.

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.
