No doubt a polarizing figure in the history of Australian motorsport, there is no doubting his achievements.
A six-time Bathurst 1000 winner with 90 ATCC/V8 Supercar Championship race wins to his name, Skaife joins Neil Crompton and the Shannons Legends of Motorsport team to talk about this career.
We’ve particularly focused on the timeline covered by the Seven Sport video archive, including his time as a young tyro in the Ford Laser one-make series, his formative years with Nissan Motorsport and his development into becoming both an ATCC and Australian Driver’s Champion.
The Shannons Legends of Motorsport team has dug deep into the Seven archive with a wide range of material ranging from some old favourites to some forgotten gems covering off Skaife’s incredible career.
Co-host and researcher Aaron Noonan also returns with some more golden vision from the vault, much of it unseen in many years and unearthed from deep in the Seven Sport library.
Mark Oastler returns also to take an up-close look at Skaife’s favourite car – the ‘Golden Child’ Holden Racing Team Commodore, which Skaife took to Bathurst glory in 2001 and 2002 as well as the V8 championship in those years.
There’s plenty of familiar old vision as well as some rare gems so tune in for the series that celebrates Aussie motorsport’s golden era this Saturday, November 1 on 7mate at 4.30pm nationally in all markets.
The 10th episode in a 12-part series celebrating Australian motorsport was filmed in front of a live audience at Shannons Auction Centre in Melbourne, Victoria.
Every episode of the Shannons Legends of Motorsport is also available to watch on the Shannons Club website after it first airs on 7mate.
