. .

Mark Larkham, longtime expert on pit lanes, became « ???? » from the redesigned Supercars comment team. and fans and colleagues are angry

It’s been part of Supercars furniture for nearly two decades, but beloved pit lane reporter Mark Larkham won’t be returning to the pit lane in 2021 after being fired from new TV rights to owner Channel Seven.

The move, which was confirmed over the weekend, triggered an extraordinary outcry from both sports fans and the motorsport industry.

« Can’t tell how much I enjoyed the opportunity Supercars have given me over many years, » Larkham said in a statement.

From the whiteboard to the Hino Hub, the freedom and flexibility I was given to create and contribute to the show was a blast.

â ???? So, I just hope my little part somehow helped fans understand some of the nuances of this cool sport that we all love while laughing a little along the way. â ????

« Larko », who will be on the sidelines with his pitlane reporter Riana Crehan in 2021, joined the commentary team in 2006 after completing a career as a driver and team owner.

In the years that followed, Larkham has made the space his own, bringing laconic but passionate expertise to the difficult task of translating a technical sport for armchair experts.

In fact, he’s arguably the best pit lane reporter in every motorsport discipline around the world. and the fans love him for it.

Larkham’s true ability is an innate ability to impart his extensive knowledge of the sport to not only dedicated motorsport fans, but occasional supercars watchers as well.

He has also been actively involved in mentoring many emerging talent in the sport and has actively promoted supercars to a wider audience outside of motorsport.

Fans made the decision, and thousands of comments and reactions flooded the decision in the hours that followed the newscast.

« Larko has made a complex sport easy to understand for the non-hardcore fan and for those with great experience, » said former Super2 racer Adam Majoram in one such typical comment.

???? We will miss his valued input and his entertaining presentation. . . Maybe they’ll call him back – you won’t know what you have until it’s gone. â ????

« Yesterday’s decision by Supercars management to remove Mark Larkham from their comment team was in the least naively stupid and, at worst, ignorant ignorant, » wrote motorsport mabe Brett Murray in a scathing commentary.

â ???? Not only is this a complete fallback to the current show, which is one of the best in the world, but also a complete middle finger for the fan base that has kept this sport alive through some pretty tough times. â ????

« The worst decision ever. The sport is getting worse because of the lack of presence, it brings an energy and enthusiasm that cannot be bottled, « said Erebus team boss Betty Klimenko.

« Riana is a wonderful woman, she always had a smile for me and a hug when something went wrong. « 

???? Many fans will have their own favorite memories of Larko from his time on the broadcast team and we are grateful for all that he has contributed in the best way he could. ???? said Sean Seamer, CEO of Supercars.

???? Mark will always be part of the Supercars family and we wish him all the best for the future. â ????

The comment team’s makeup from 2021 is still up in the air. Mark Skaife and Jessica Yates have confirmed this from the 2020 lineup. Former Seven Pitlane reporter Mark Beretta returns alongside Craig Lowndes.

Long-time anchor Neil Crompton is believed to have no deal for 2021 right now, while former racing driver Paul Morris is believed to be in the running for a pit lane coverage role.

Seven will broadcast six Supercars races live in 2021, including the Bathurst 1000 and Bathurst 12 Hour (if the time comes). .

Highlights from other races will be repeated on Seven and 7plus on the same day of the race, while Fox and Kayo will broadcast all races on pay TV.
