Jim was fantastic on the day, made himself available for a chat with everyone, provided an excellent insight into his life as a racing car driver, and above all thrilled everyone with his hot laps..still had a smile for the next few days..great experience!
Awesome time cant stop grinning
I would definitely recommend this adventure. The event was well organised on the day and Katie, from Arenalin, and Jim were very proffessional and attentive to all the participants. Nothing was too much trouble. "Gentleman" Jim was very informative, down to earth and a pleasure to meet. The ride, what can I say "absolutely fantastic". The memory of the day will last forever.
Affectionately known in the Motorsport industry as "Gentleman Jim" he is a truly amazing man with an attitude and racing skills that set him apart from any other racing driver in Australia today.
Jim Richards is a "self confessed, average sort of bloke who became a king of Australian touring car racing. Unimpressed and unwanting of the fame and glory, he won the crown uncomfortably, but wore it nevertheless. Not for himself, but for his team and for the many people who helped him along the way". (From "The Jim Richards Story" by Barry Naismith).
Please note that Jim may bring along one of his collection of race-prepared Porsches to complete the Hot Laps.
