Larko’s mid-season report card 

Mark Larkham lets fire on PARKED UP PLUS podcast, giving his verdict on the 2022 Supercars field.

27 June 2022

Popular TV pitlane pundit Mark Larkham has delivered his verdict on the Supercars season so far.
 
Larko names his ‘scuds and duds’ – the standouts and disappointments – at the halfway mark of the championship on the latest PARKED UP PLUS podcast. He delivers his mid-season report card with typical candour and insight.
 
Larko tells PARKED UP PLUS that Shane van Gisbergen will be under pressure to retain his title during the back half of the season.
 
He analyses the form of SVG and looming challengers Anton De Pasquale, Cameron Waters and even Will Davison, plus the mercurial Chaz Mostert.
 
Larko also laments the lacklustre form of Erebus Motorsport rising stars Will Brown and Brodie Kostecki.
 
As well, PARKED UP PLUS hears from Tickford Racing boss Tim Edwards about his ‘driver dilemma’. The resurgent Ford team, which has lifted Waters into title contention, has five drivers vying for four seats next year.
 
Waters is a long-term lock, but James Courtney, Thomas Randle and Jake Kostecki are all vulnerable despite on-going agreements. Knocking on the door is Tickford’s Super2 protégé Zake Best.
 
Edwards admits his driver surfeit is a great problem to have as he also backs veteran Courtney to be competitive for years to come.
 
PARKED UP PLUS also talks to V8 legend Dick Johnson about his grandson Jett’s future prospects.
 
Jett is the third-gen Johnson in racing, poised to establish a new motor racing dynasty. There’s already the Brabhams, the Andrettis, the Unsers and the Davisons.
 
It’s a select group, but grandpa Dick declares there’ll be “no nepotism” for Jett at Dick Johnson Racing. The most senior Johnson outlines how Jett will have to earn his spurs, most likely away from the family team.
 
All this and more on the latest PARKED UP PLUS, leading rather than following the week’s major motorsport news.
