Reckon you've got what it takes to spin some magic in the commentary box? If so, Jands and Supercars want to hear from you - literally.
The local audio distributor are teaming up with the rev-heads at Supercars for a new competition to promote their broadcast of the BP Supercars All Stars Eseries called Commentate The Stars, with a Shure MV88+ up for grabs for one lucky winner each week.
If you're a bit confused about what Supercars All Stars Eseries is, it's essentially like a normal V8 race, but it all takes place on a virtual playing field. Imagine those arcade games you played as a kid, except there's actual mega stars like Max Verstappen involved and a huge audience tuning in for each round. Crazy world we live in, huh?
If you reckon you've got what it takes to be a Supercars commentator, or simply just want to win some sweet prizes, read on. Each Thursday, a raw 30 second piece of footage from an Eseries round will be posted to Supercars' Facebook page, with entrants being tasked with adding a personalised video commentating on what went down on the track for that night. Then, all you need to do is upload your commentary video to your personal Facebook or Instagram account using the hashtags #CommentateTheStars and #VASC by 12pm Monday, and you're in it to win it!
The weekly Commentate The Stars winner will be announced during the next week’s Eseries broadcast, with the winner receiving a Shure MV88+ video kit and putting themselves in the running for the major prize. At the end of the 10-round Eseries, judges will select the top three winning entries, with those options to square off in a 24-hour Facebook poll for the public to decide on. The overall winner will be announced on Friday June 19, winning a stellar prize pack including three tickets to a Supercars event in their local state and the chance to commentate a live session at that event with Supercars and learn from some of the best in the business in Chad Neylon and Matt Naulty.
