Recommended Posts

From the Liqui-moly Bathurst 12 Hour website.

THE FULL roster of on-air talent for the biggest weekend of Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour coverage yet has been announced. 

1994 Bathurst 12 Hour winner and Supercars hall-of-famer Neil Crompton will join an international broadcast team for more than 20 hours of streaming and broadcast coverage this weekend.

Qualifying and the Top-10 shootout will be broadcast exclusively live on Fox Sports 506 on Saturday, 1 February while the race itself will be shown ad-break free on Fox Sports and on free-to-air on 7Mate this Sunday.

Crompton and Fox Sports’ Chris Stubbs will anchor Saturday’s coverage, while Seven’s Mark Beretta will join the duo for Sunday’s extensive race coverage across both networks.

12-Hour commentary will come from John Hindhaugh, Richard Craill and Jonny Palmer, while Chad Neylon, Shea Adam and Charli Robinson will cover pit lane activities throughout the weekend – to be joined on Sunday by Neil Crompton.

Streaming of support categories and the final Bathurst 12 Hour practice session will commence at 7:20am on Saturday prior to the coverage on Fox Sports starting at 12:30pm local time, running through to 6:00pm. Sunday’s coverage commences at 5:30am and runs through to 6:00pm local time.

Fox Sports Head of Television, Steve Crawley, said: “Our car racing continues to deliver in a big way with record ratings and stimulating competition, so we continue to build it. The Bathurst 12 Hour is a most welcome addition for our customers.”

Commenting on the agreement, Lewis Martin, Managing Director Seven Melbourne and Head of Network Sport, Seven, said: “We’ve always been passionate about motorsport at Seven, so we’re thrilled to be broadcasting the Bathurst 12 Hour race in 2020.”

 Craillsy is a brilliant commentator. He's a Porsche nut who does the Carrera Cup here and Shannons Nationals. Also owns a 944.

 Crompton is good, but bloody annoying on the V8 telecast when he's interviewing people

 I'm really looking forward to this one, as there are some Aussies in Porsches that have a very good chance at winning it. I'm hoping Matt Campbell wins again, though it would be great to see Lowndes on the podium too.

You are right - listening to the Daytona coverage, I was really impressed by the commentary team's knowledge re WEC.  Not so sure about Beretta though....

 He's probably there for the channel 7 component I'd say.

 The whole Shannons Nationals commentary team, Craillsy, Greg Rust, Aaron Noonan, Matt Nulty and the stupendously lovely Emma Notafrancesco, are the best in the business, and I reckon they should be doing all the work at the 12 hour in my opinion.

 Did I mention Emma? She's lovely 😁

 I did ask her at The Bend if she wanted to take my air cooled for a spin, though she was busy...and probably thought I was a stalker...which I was...😍

Like most here I wanted a Porsche victory ,,,but I am happy to see the Bentley get it ,,,they drove a good race and deserved the win ,,,,the race pace this year was really fast especially the last couple of hours ,,some of the lap times were incredible when you consider how hard they had been for the previous 10 hours ..

You'd think they'd have that sorted given Bathurst hosts a number of enduros with multiple drivers.

 

To those there in person, were the cars rather quiet, or was the TV broadcast not up to scratch? Couldn't hear them very well - particularly over that pommy geezer!

Nothing in any of the news-sites (Age, ABC, News.com.au) on the race yesterday, whereas this was sold by all commentators and drivers yesterday as 'internationally one of the big GT races'. ?? What am I missing here?

Good race by the way, and deserved win for Bentley, but man, what would've/could've been if that rain had come down 2 hours earlier...

@patrick911

 From what I've read here n there, it's the international drivers who rate the Bathurst 12 hour highly as a big event, more for it's history as a track than the race itself. Many of them have watched the V8's over the years and have wanted to drive there, so maybe it's more of a novelty than anything else. They have to put up with driving the same boring old circuits in Europe, like Spa, Nurburgring and Hockenheim (sarcasm), and Bathurst is just something new, yet some of the drivers were very animated in saying it's the best track in the world and very tough physically.

 I think the commentators are told to say that about the event, yet they also speak highly of the place (Craillsy is a local SA lad and Porsche nut, so he would say that anyway).

 As a whole, I thought the coverage was great and at times very exciting racing, and even though I'm not much of a fan of endurance racing because of the strategic side of it and not fender bashing racing, I enjoyed it

You were right the first time. Like other once great circuits, it's been Tilkefied.
