Pit reporter Greg Rust will depart Supercars’ television coverage at the end of the 2017 season.

The Sydney-based Rust will finish up his on-air duties with Supercars at the Coates Hire Newcastle 500 following two stints in the category.

Rust worked on Supercars coverage from 1998-2006 with Network Ten before returning to the championship at the start of the current Fox Sports era in 2015.

He currently serves as a pit reporter during the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship sessions as well as commentating the Dunlop Super2 Series.

Confirming his impending exit, Rust said he intends to stay involved in automotive broadcasting.

“After long chats with Supercars Management over the past few months we’ve agreed to a change for next year,” he said.

“I’m looking forward to putting more ‘Frequent Family points in the bank’ as Steve Richards would say and the chance to explore new opportunities.”

“Greg will always be a part for of the Supercars family and we wish him all the best for the future.”
