Launching on 7mate on Saturday July 19th, 4.30pm EST, Shannons Legends of Motorsport is a new twelve-part series in which Neil Crompton is set to bring the history of Australian Motorsport to life with rare and extensive footage from the ’60s to the ’90s and guests that make up the laundry list of Australian motorsport royalty.

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

Shot in front of a live audience, the series will look back at the biggest events in Australian motorsport history with behind-the-scenes insight from Neil Crompton and a legendary host of special guests including Allan Moffat, Dick Johnson, Kevin Bartlett, Fred Gibson, John Bowe, Allan Grice, Jim Richards, Larry Perkins, Mark Skaife and more.

It’s about the cars, races, crashes and people which contributed to Australia’s colourful, prolific and action-packed motorsport history. And that sounds brilliant!

Catch all of the episodes on 7mate Saturdays (check local guides) or watch them on Shannons Club TV.
