New TV series: Shannons legends of motorsport
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.
