    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.

    More Information

    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.
