Veteran co-driver and Supercars broadcaster Jack Perkins has celebrated his off-season with a wedding.

Perkins, a veteran of 16 Bathurst starts, married long-term partner Tara Wormleaton in Byron Bay last Friday.

Fellow Supercars drivers and long-term friends James Courtney and Tim Slade attended the wedding.

Other drivers and motorsport identities attended the ceremony, including Grove Racing driver David Reynolds.

Perkins posted the announcement on his social media accounts on Tuesday.

The Supercars paddock was quick to congratulate the newlyweds.  

"Congrats legend," Chaz Mostert posted.

"Huge congrats to the new Perko trio!" added Lee Holdsworth.


Perkins won on the Surfers Paradise streets alongside Courtney in 2015.

They also combined to finish third at Mount Panorama in 2019.

Perkins joined Erebus Motorsport in 2021 and partnered Will Brown for last December’s Repco Bathurst 1000.

The second-generation racer made his 16th consecutive Bathurst start, but a result went begging following a power steering failure.

Perkins is also an accomplished broadcaster, and featured as part of the Seven Network’s motorsport coverage.

He also co-hosted the inaugural season of motorsport magazine show 7th Gear alongside Garth Tander and Chris Stubbs.

This year's Repco Bathurst 1000 is slated for October 6-9. Perkins has yet to confirm his Bathurst co-driving plans for 2022. 

The 13-event 2022 Repco Supercars Championship will commence in Sydney in March. CLICK HERE to purchase your tickets.
