Matt White is “ready to rip” in his comeback to Supercars commentating, which will come on the radio with Sports Entertainment Network (SEN).

The acclaimed commentator will make his highly anticipated return to calling Supercars as part of SEN's coverage of the 2024 Repco Supercars Championship. 

White, host of SEN 1170am's morning show 'Mornings with Matt White', brings over two decades of experience as an authoritative voice of Supercars.

The experienced broadcaster was a household voice on Supercars broadcasts, with Network Ten and the Seven Network.

White’s return begins at this weekend’s Thrifty Bathurst 500, where he will call the Sunday action with James Moffat.

“I’m ready to rip. Supercars has played a defining role in my career,” White told Supercars.com.

“Even though I may not have been calling it the last couple of years, I’ve been well and truly attached to it, I’ve got a deep-seeded love for it.

“It was a no-brainer when they asked me to be involved, and to start at Bathurst again ticks all the boxes.”

White was the voice behind famous moments such as Greg Murphy’s 2003 'Lap of the Gods’, the ‘all in the fence’ incident at Homebush in 2010, and Scott McLaughlin’s 2014 Adelaide battle with Jamie Whincup.

Having been at the helm for historic drama, White is raring to enjoy the moment all over again — this time, with a new medium.


“Sport is made up of big moments, big moments, big characters and history. Supercars has all of those, and more,” said White, who last called a Supercar race a decade ago.

“Radio requires a very descriptive call — you really have to paint the picture of everything you see that the listener can’t see.

“It’s about the sights and sounds of sports. Straight away, you think of Supercars — when it comes to sights and sounds, it delivers everything.

“The first race I called was Winton in 2001, and it was the only pole Russell Ingall got! I’d been with Sports Tonight and RPM long before that, but that was a baptism of fire.

“I’m also really excited to do it alongside Moff — I was there when he came through, and I’ve been involved with his dad as well. Noons set a terrific bar last year, I’ve got the utmost respect for him. 

“We’ve shown there’s an appetite for Supercars on radio. It’s a really important part of the Supercars media landscape, and I’m keen to get into it.”

SEN Content Director Jeremy Markham added: "We are thrilled to welcome back Matt White as the voice of SEN Supercars.

"Motorsport fans have sorely missed Matt's voice and unmatched commentary. We can't wait for him to call his first race and bring his infectious energy and passion to our coverage this weekend.

"It is also an honour to welcome back seasoned driver James Moffat to our expert SEN Supercars team. With two decades of experience behind the wheel, James brings a wealth of driver insights and analysis that our listeners will love."
