Oliver’s Mount have announced that Chris Kinley will be taking charge of the commentary at all four scheduled meetings at the historic Scarborough racetrack in 2020.

Kinley brings a wealth of experience and expertise to Oliver’s Mount. He first joined Manx Radio, commentating on the TT back in 2003, and since then has progressed to be one of the voices of road racing.

The likeable Manxman, who was born just 100 yards from the Southern 100 course in Castletown, started marshalling at the TT course aged just 16 and is now one of the most knowledgeable radio broadcasters in the industry.

“We’re delighted to have Chris back in the commentary tower. We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Tony Coupland who has been the voice of Oliver’s Mount for so many years for his dedication and entertainment. Chris has big shoes to fill,” said Oliver’s Mount chief Eddie Roberts.

Kinley isn’t just synonymous with the TT, but has also shared his vast experience from the commentary box at various road races throughout the world, from Macau to the North West 200.

“It’s great to see Oliver’s Mount back on the road racing calendar, and I can’t wait to get back to the exciting, historic race track. I’ve always loved the track and the holiday feel. With four large race meetings planned for 2020, it’s going to be a busy and exciting year,” said Kinley.

The much loved and highly knowledgeable Tony Coupland will still be a part of the commentary team, and a familiar face and character in the paddock. It wouldn’t be racing at Oliver’s Mount without Tony’s familiar voice echoing over the commentary. Oliver’s Mount Racing would like to thank Tony for his dedication and the entertainment he has brought to many race fans over the years.
