New TV se­ries: Shan­nons leg­ends of mo­tor­sport

Shepparton News - Shepparton Car Weekly - - SHEPPARTON CAR WEEKLY -

Re­live the big­gest events of Aus­tralian mo­tor­sport his­tory in Seven’s new pro­gram ‘Shan­nons Leg­ends of Mo­tor­sport’, hosted by Neil Crompton and launch­ing on 7mate on Satur­day, July 19.

In an en­ter­tain­ing 12-part se­ries Neil Crompton, Aus­tralia’s pre­mier mo­tor­ing com­men­ta­tor brings to life the his­tory of Aus­tralian mo­tor­sport with rarely seen his­tor­i­cal footage from Seven’s ex­ten­sive ar­chives dat­ing from the 1960s to the ’90s.

In front of a live au­di­ence Neil Crompton talks with a host of leg­ends, in­clud­ing Al­lan Mof­fat, Dick John­son, Kevin Bartlett, Fred Gibson, John Bowe, Al­lan Grice, Jim Richards, Larry Perkins and Mark Skaife.

They re­flect on the cars they drove, the great races and the crashes that all con­trib­uted to Aus­tralia’s amaz­ing mo­tor­sport his­tory.

Shan­nons Leg­ends of Mo­tor­sport will go be­hind the scenes to get the real story of some of the great­est mo­ments in rac­ing his­tory.

Neil Crompton’s pas­sion and knowl­edge of mo­tor­sport is widely recog­nised and when de­vel­op­ing the new se­ries, he found the per­fect part­ner in Shan­nons.

‘‘The Shan­nons Leg­ends of Mo­tor­sport is an ex­cit­ing project for me. It blends won­der­ful his­toric im­agery from Seven’s li­brary with iconic rac­ing cars plus the leg­ends who drove them. Some of the ma­te­rial we’ve found is fan­tas­tic and in many cases, long for­got­ten and the back sto­ries are fas­ci­nat­ing,’’ Mr Crompton said.

For mo­tor­sport fans, this is must watch tele­vi­sion, an en­ter­tain­ing and fas­ci­nat­ing ret­ro­spec­tive view into some of Aus­tralia’s rac­ing cham­pi­ons.
