Neil Crompton has confirmed his availability to MC the Mr Motocross Legends and Stars Charity Dinner on 8 March, 2014, at Crown Casino in Melbourne.
Vince Tesoriero, the groundbreaking Australian Mr Motocross promoter, was always looking for an edge to improve his series, focusing on promoting rider profiles through the local press where each round of the series was to be held. Vince discovered Crompton in Ballarat, Victoria, and decided that he was just the man to get the Mr Motocross message across thanks to his smooth and fluid voice.
The hook-up with Mr Motocross propelled Neil into a 41-year motoring career – eight years of motocross, 28-years of car racing and 15-years as a professional commentator. To this day Neil is heard in our lounge rooms via his television commentary of the V8 Supercars, F1 and more. Neil is a well-respected, valued and measured commentator whose racing background gives him a feel for what’s going on out on the track.
On 8 March, 2014 Neil will team up with with the man who gave him that opportunity, Vince Tesoriero, at the Mr Motocross Legends and Stars Charity Dinner supporting Kids with Cancer. Attending the event will be the seven winners of the Mr Motocross series: Trevor and Gary Flood, Anthony Gunter, Stephen Gall, Ray ‘Goof’ Vandenberg, Jeff Leisk and Craig Dack, along with more than 60 motocross stars from the era.
“When I started planning the Mr Motocross Legends and Stars Charity Dinner back in July 2013, I contacted Neil from the outset to see if he’d be available to MC the event, because I thought it would be a great opportunity to reunite him with Vince Tesoriero,” said Rosco Holden of Holden on Tight. “What followed was a long eight months of waiting until Neil could confirm his availability on 8 March considering he has to commentate the Clipsal 500 the week before and has Melbourne F1 commitments the week following. It was a big ask.”
Thankfully the berms and the tarmac aligned and Neil has been able to confirm his attendance at the Mr Motocross Legends and Stars Charity Dinner.
