Mark Larkham has confirmed today that he will not be returning to the Supercars broadcast in 2021.
Larkham has injected plenty of vibrant life into the Supercars pitlane commentary team since joining the media team in 2006 after a stint as a team owner.
The 56-year-old has been a staple in the pre-race and in-race analysis, with his ability to read each race as it unfolds from a strategic perspective making him a respected pundit in the paddock.
His exit follows on from the announcement that Riana Crehan would also be leaving the broadcast team next year.
“I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed the opportunity Supercars have given me over many years,” Larkham said today.
“From the whiteboard to the Hino Hub, the freedom and flexibility I’ve been given to create and contribute to the telecast have been a blast.
“So, I hope in some way my small part has help fans understand some of the nuances of this cool sport we all love, whilst we laughed a little along the way.
“So, I’ll just say this… cold beer, feet up and ready for Mustang v Camaro in 2022…”
Supercars CEO Sean Seamer thanked Larkham for his contribution to Supercars award-winning broadcast.
“Larko is a true broadcasting professional and has been a valued member of our Supercars Media team dating back to 2006 with his most recent three-year stint being in pit lane,” said Seamer.
“His diverse skills have not only provided us great coverage from pit lane and the commentary box but have also provided Supercars with a world-class personality who has made a memorable contribution to the broadcast for many years.
“Many fans will have their own favourite Larko memory from his time with the broadcast team, and we are grateful for everything he has contributed in the way that only he could.
“Mark will always be a part for of the Supercars family and we wish him all the best for the future.”
