Supercars and Mark Larkham have confirmed this afternoon that the pit lane commentator will not be returning to the broadcast in 2021.
One of the more enduring personalities who transitioned from successful competitor to the media world, ‘Larko’ has provided commentary in pit lane along with his unique whiteboard analysis since stepping away from team ownership in 2006.
Confirming his exit yesterday, Larkham said:
“Can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed the opportunity Supercars have given me over many years,” Larkham said.
“From the whiteboard to the Hino Hub, the freedom and flexibility I’ve been given to create and contribute to the telecast has been a blast.
“So, I just 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.”
Further details regarding the 2021 Repco Supercars Championship broadcast on Foxtel, Kayo and the Seven Network will be announced in January.
