V8 Sleuth wins at Hino Supercars Media Awards

V8 SLEUTH has been recognised at this year’s 12th annual Hino Supercars Media Awards, winning four major awards for its coverage of the 2023 Repco Supercars Championship.

The website was awarded Media Outlet/Publication of the Year for its coverage of the championship in 2023, the second year in a row the site has been recognised with this award.

V8 Sleuth website editor Connor O’Brien received two prestigious awards at last night’s awards held at the VAILO Adelaide 500.

O’Brien was named Journalist of the Year for the second year in a row as the most outstanding journalist covering Supercars this season.

His exclusive story in August breaking the news of the move of Will Brown from Erebus Motorsport to rivals Triple Eight Race Engineering for 2024 also earned him the award for Best Supercars News Story.

V8 Sleuth Head of Publications Stefan Bartholomaeus was awarded the Best Supercars Feature Story for his analysis piece in September titled ‘The shifting sands at Tickford Racing’ that took a look at the Melbourne-based Ford team as it comes to the end of an era with Tim Edwards set to move on.

V8 Sleuth publisher Aaron Noonan received an Honourable Mention for the Broadcaster of the Year for his SEN radio commentary and coverage of this year’s championship on the Sports Entertainment Network.

“We’re incredibly grateful to have been recognised with these awards by our industry,” says Noonan.

“The amazing support we continue to receive from the fans of Supercar racing and Australian motorsport industry has been truly outstanding.

“We’d like to thank everyone that follows and appreciates the time and effort we’ve put into our content and platform over the course of 2023.

“I’d also like to extend a warm thank you to our ever-growing list of corporate partners whose support allows us to bring Supercars fans our unique blend of contemporary and historic-flavoured stories, podcasts and print products.”

Long-time journalist and public relations/driver manager David Segal was inducted into the Supercars Media Hall of Fame, joining fellow 2023 inductee Garry Wilkinson, who was inducted at the recent Repco Bathurst 1000.

Mark Horsburgh was named the Photographer of the Year, Supercars Media’s Chad Neylon won the Broadcaster of the Year and Emily Dickson of the Shell V-Power Racing Team was named Media Manager of the Year.

Greg Rust’s ‘Rusty’s Garage’ won the Best Supercars Radio Show/Podcast award, Connor McKenzie won the Best Photo and Brad Jones Racing’s Rachel Cherry won the award for Best Use of Digital Media Covering Supercars.

Tickford Racing’s ‘Tickford Cup’ social media video series was named the winner of the Best Supercars PR stunt/activation award.
