"Steve is good friends with the Nolan family and is really looking forward to the day," he said.
"He will be arriving on the Friday before the cup for the My Optical Calcutta on the Friday night and doing a turn in the caller's box and in the Black Toyota trackside marquee during the day."
"I have heard Steve calling big races like the Ramornie where he was outstanding and one of the funniest men you would ever meet so it should be fun," Inmon said.
