SUPERCARS champion Scott McLaughlin will return to the paddock for the first time since his time in IndyCar.

McLaughlin hinted at the development this afternoon, posting a photo of a 2022 Supercars All Zones Access Pass under the Supercars Media banner.

Supercars Media is the arm producing the championship broadcast, indicating that he will appear in a television role on the pitch at some point this year.

It is not yet known which event(s) McLaughlin will be competing in, with three rounds remaining after this weekend: the Repco Bathurst 1000 October 6-9, Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 (October 28-30) and VALO Adelaide 500 (December 1-2). 4).

McLaughlin left Supercars in October 2020 to pursue his dream of IndyCar full-time in the United States.

He is now a three-time race winner in the American open-wheel series and an outside shot at the title.

The 29-year-old signed a multi-year contract extension with Team Penske during the week.
