An absolutely thrilling experience, would do it again in a heartbeat. A fly on the wall look into the skill and expert professionalism of a truly great driver and allround decent bloke that is Jim Richards. I will relive this day for a long time to come, over+ over again. Many thanks to all involved- Ken
I would like to thank Jim Richards and his crew for putting on a fantastic experience. Meeting Jim Richards and experiencing him driving me around Sandown in a Porsche Gt3 Cup car was definately one of the greatest experiences that I have had. Jim is a true "gentleman" and is a totally approachable guy who just loves his cars and is a drivers driver. I would totally recommend this experience to anyone who is interested in finding out how fast a Porsche race car can corner. What a blast.
A fantastic experience that l highly recommend - oustanding
Jim was a great, not just taking you for a drive but spent the time to talk about anything. Thanks Jim
The experience was very well presented and Jim Richard's talk after lunch was simple and very well presented. He is a charming man who impressed me totally.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK
Had great day
What a buzz, took 3 days to get the smile off my face, and Jim Richards, a perfect gentleman and a genuine bloke, I loved it, the best 60th birthday present I could have hoped for.
Gentleman Jim was a true gentleman in every sense! He was very open and genuinely interested in our stories and it was a pleasure to spend time with him on the day!
i got my dream to get in a car with Jim richards. without a doubt is one of the best drivers in the country thankyou .
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.
