Australian motorsport broadcaster Leigh Diffey has received an honourable mention in the prestigious Sports Illustrated Media Awards.
The former V8 Supercars commentator was commended alongside his NBC Sports colleagues David Hobbs and Steve Matchett in the Broadcast Team of the Year award for their work presenting IndyCar and Formula 1 events.
The trio have fronted NBC Sports’ open wheel motor racing coverage since 2013.
ESPN duo Sean McDonough and Chris Spielman, who present college football and basketball, claimed the top honour.
Brisbane-born Diffey has enjoyed a distinguished career in motorsport broadcasting which has seen the Queenslander work for the BBC and Network Ten alongside stints in America with ESPN and now NBC Sports.
