Wade Aunger has been talking about fast cars, bikes and even boats pretty well his whole life.
He started announcing ‘World Championships’ with matchbox cars on the lounge room floor as a toddler, and maybe a slightly deeper voice, a hairier chin and an awesome portfolio of some amazing images shot on the Canon is the only difference almost fifty years later.
Motorsport commentary became his life! He’s been fortunate enough to call race cars and bikes throughout Australia, New Zealand, the USA and UK. Every year, he travels to America to announce, host, interview and present at two of the big- gest Speedway races in the world - The Knoxville Nationals for Sprintcars and the IMCA Super Nationals for “Modifieds” and “Stock Cars”.
Almost five decades on he’s still living his dream!
His true passion has always been oval track car and bike dirt Speedway. It was Nathan Prendergast (former Head of Supercar Me- dia) who was “SBS Speedweek” producer at the time and bullied (encouraged) him into calling all manner of other bitumen, dirt and even water genres starting back in 1999.
