Gentleman Jim certainly lives up to the name. One of the nicest people around, made the experience absolutely fantastic.
Customer safety was always a priority. Jim was excellent as were his support staff.
I have done many hot laps with Jim & would recommend it to anyone. I always feel totally safe with him in the car travelling at close to race pace on every lap with pin point accuracy on the track. Its just sensational to have the oportunity to do this with a Legend & a complete Gentleman. I'll be back for more.
I had never been around a race track before and didn't know what to expect. The ride was absolutely awesome and you won't meet a nicer person than Jim Richards. I wished the day could have gone longer. Steve E.
Jim was great. Laps were far closer to limit that I'd expected. Loved it.
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.
Spectators are welcome at $50 per person, which includes access to the circuit, insurance and lunch with Jim.
