Walkinshaw Racing has released a 6 part Television series which will screen in Australia on 7mate.

Titled V8 Life, the series promises to give a unique behind-the-scenes insight into the lives of those behind the four-car V8 Supercars outfit.

The 30 minute programs have been produced by Melbourne-based AME Management.

Co-producer Adam Bailey says the show has been structured to appeal to a broad audience.

“We created V8 Life not only to provide a fly-on-the-wall behind the scenes look at the team, but most importantly to focus on the people who are leading unique and exciting lifestyles, as opposed to being a motor racing program,” Adam Bailey said.

“The opportunity to combine reality TV programming and sport is a unique and powerful one that should broaden the audience for athletes and team, without excluding the passionate fans who will love getting to know their heroes better.”

V8 LIFE will focus on champion drivers Garth Tander and James Courtney of the Holden Racing Team, Bathurst winner Nick Percat from Heavy Haulage Australia Racing, as well as Tim Slade of Supercheap Auto Racing.

“Our sport is an incredibly exciting one that pits man and machine on the race-track – often at the limit of human endurance. “However, behind our drivers is a passionate army of people all pushing hard to win – and their lifestyles and personalities equally make for compelling viewing. “We’re delighted to be involved in V8 LIFE, and can’t wait to hear the response from our fanbase after the first show airs this weekend.” Said Walkinshaw Racing’s managing director Adrian Burgess.

Hi, I have been a Formula 1 fanatic since 1987 when my family took me to the Adelaide GP. I now enjoy close friendships with team members at Ferrari and within the Holden Racing Team (V8Supercars).
