“It shores up our Sunday morning line-up, which also features The Great Trans-Tasman Show and Wynton’s World of Football, with Oceania Player of the Century, Wynton Rufer.”

Stephen McIvor says: "I’m pumped that LiveSPORT is keen to showcase the world of motorsport in the Honda Motorsport Show. It’s a dream job, and a great tie-in with my television show, #SkySpeed with Greg Murphy.

“Add that to the fact I now get to spent an hour each week talking the great game of rugby league with the Champion Freight League Show and life is not good, it’s great!"
