Briony Ingerson

A familiar face at motor racing events around Australia, Briony Ingerson has covered almost every four and two-wheel sport during her television broadcasting career.

An avid speedway fan, Briony began as a pit reporter for World Series Sprintcars. She then spent three years on Network Ten's RPM program filing stories on everything from domestic V8 Supercars, drag racing and rally, through to Moto GP and NASCAR.

Briony was chosen to be part of V8 Supercar Television's inaugural team on Channel Seven, hosting several support category programs and becoming the first female pit reporter to cover the prestigious Bathurst 1000 endurance race.

Over the years Briony has hosted Bigpond's V8 Supercar website content, the Australian Superbike Championships and Bathurst 12 hour TV broadcasts, and filled in as host of SPEED TV's 'Speed News Australia'.

Each year she is part of the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix track coverage and most recently appeared on Foxtel's coverage of the 2012/13 World Series Sprintcars.

Briony when asked about her new role as host of Shannons Supercar Showdown said, "I watched the first two series of Shannons Supercar Showdown, and really got into it, so I am really looking forward to be part of Season 3, especially with the move to FPR Racing with Mark & Will."
