Matt White is in London for the Olympics and will miss the Coates Hire 300

The 2012 London Olympics has caused a change in the V8 Supercars commentary team.

Despite V8 broadcaster Seven Network not broadcasting the Olympics for the first time since 1988, Seven has sent host V8 caller Matt White and pit lane reporter Mark Beretta to the London Games as part of its news coverage.

The absence of White and Beretta will see Neil Crompton and Mark Skaife call the race from the commentary box, with Aaron Noonan joining Mark Larkham in pit lane.

It is the second time that Noonan has been called into the commentary squad this year after Beretta missed the Perth event while participating in the fundraising bike ride Tour de Cure.

Sydney and Brisbane viewers will watch this weekend’s action on Seven’s primary channel, while all other markets will tune into 7mate.

The Dunlop Series and the Touring Car Masters kick off the action on Saturday from 1430 AEST. Race 16 of the V8 Supercars Championship starts at 1600.

On Sunday, Dunlop Series and Formula Ford will have a race shown each, starting at 1400, followed by V8 Supercars’s Race 17 at 1530.
