Jim Richards Racing kindly invited a few Javelin Car Club members along to the factory to have a close up look at the recently completed Bruce Tyson Built Javelin.
Everyone was very impressed, Particularly at the attention to detail throughout this magnificent machine. And the sound of that engine was just brilliant. After a 2 year build, it was well worth the wait. We look forward to watching the amc Javelin winning races.
Thanks to Jim and his crew for answering loads of questions from the keen Javelin owners and we wish you all the best for the season.

1987 ATCC Lakeside R3 - Jim Richards At His Best
Jim Richards at his best, enjoy this blast from the past from Lakeside.
Allan Grice and the Roadways team were down to one car, but it was a
brand-spanking-new VL, the first to run in the ATCC. Meanwhile, the former
factory team were also down to one car after Gary Scott crashed Brock's #05
during mid-week testing. Brock would race #6 until his new VL was ready,
qualifying it on the front row next to pole-sitter Seton. credit to Channel
Jim Richards BMW M3 victory in the final round of the series at Oran Park
in Sydney would be the last time a Naturally aspirated engined car would
win an ATCC race until Peter Brock won Heat 1 of Round 1 of the 1992
Australian Touring Car Championship driving a V8 Holden Commodore.
1987 was a year of lasts in Australian touring car racing. It was the last
time Peter Brock would drive a Holden until 1991 as he would switch first
to BMW and then Fords. Consequently it was the last time the Holden Dealer
Team name, which started under Harry Firth in 1969, would be used (though
the team officially ran as "HDT Racing Pty Ltd" as it was no longer the
factory backed team following Holden's well publicised split with Brock in
February). It would also be Colin Bond's last year of racing Alfa Romeo's
before switching back to Ford to run a Sierra. And it was also the last
time the JPS Team BMW (who won their second title) would be seen with team
boss Frank Gardner closing the team down at the end of the year.

Feels like a Porsche? Yes. 1969 AMX - /Big Muscle
When the American Motors Corporation (AMC) released the AMX back in 1969
the motoring world didn't know what to make of it. It had two seats like a
sports car, a solid live axle and a raucous V8 like a muscle car, and
styling that could've gone either way. Owner Jimi Day has been a long time
fan of the AMX so when he got the opportunity to construct his own he
pulled out all the stops, went buck-ass wild, and built what is arguably
one of the best AMX's on the planet Earth.
