Supercars legend Greg Murphy will return to the Supercars broadcast team for this year’s Enduro events, the Penrite Oil Sandown 500 and the Repco Bathurst 1000.

Murphy was long a fixture of pit lane following his retirement from racing, which ended temporarily last year when he drove one final Great Race at Mount Panorama in the Boost Mobile wildcard alongside fellow kiwi Richie Stanaway.

The all-NZ pair finished in 11th place in Murphy’s first Bathurst in eight years, and Stanaway’s first in three.

The now 50-year-old said the 2022 Great Race will officially be his final race in Supercars.

Supercars Head of Broadcast David Tunnicliffe said Murphy will step into a familiar role for the Sandown and Bathurst events.

"Fans love Murph and we will have him back in the thick of the action as part of the broadcast team for this year’s endurance events,” Tunnicliffe said.


“He’s a great talent and will be there to ensure fans know exactly what is going on in and outside team garage’s during two of the most important race weekends of the year.”

The announcement was made this weekend where the four-time Bathurst 1000 Champion is driving a Gen3 Erebus Supercar at this week’s Beaurepaires Sydney SuperNight as part of a father-son seat swap with 21-year-old son Ronan.

Ronan Murphy is currently second in Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge, one of the support categories on show this weekend at Sydney Motorsport Park.

The Murphy laps at Sydney Motorsport Park are an activation of Merlin, of which Greg is an ambassador, and the swap will be broadcast exclusively on Foxtel.

All practice, qualifying and race sessions are ad free and live on Foxtel and streamed live on Kayo this weekend.

The Seven Network will have highlights on Saturday and Sunday.
