REVIEW: New Zealand-born, Australian based racer Jim Richards is one of the finest all-round racing talents ever produced in the Southern Hemisphere. His successes and achievements are as wide and varied as the cars he’s raced in a stellar career dating back to the 1960s in his homeland. On this release is featured three of his wins from a career that saw him crowned Australian Touring Car Champion four times – in 1985, 1987, 1990 and 1991.

Firstly, featured is the 1985 Better Brakes 100, the penultimate round of that year’s ATCC from July ’85 with Richards aboard the gorgeous, six-cylinder JPS BMW 635 CSi. He and his car dominated that season (with 7 wins from 10 rounds), the first touring car title run to Group A international rules in Australia where he had to fight the Mobil Commodore of Peter Brock and Greens-Tuf Mustang of Dick Johnson amid a range of other contenders.

Next is the 1987 round of the championship from the old Surfers Paradise circuit in Queensland with Richards claiming victory in the nimble, four-cylinder JPS BMW M3 up against the turbo-charged Nissan Skylines and Ford Sierras as well as the V8 Commodores. Finally, included is a race win from Richards’ fantastic time with Fred Gibson’s Nissan Motorsport team – the opening round of the 1990 championship at Amaroo Park in Sydney.
