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.

1985 ATCC R8 Lakeside 'Jim Richards BMW 635'
Triple Bathurst winner Jim Richards won his first Australian Touring Car
Championship driving a BMW 635 CSi entered by JPS Team BMW. Defending
series champion Dick Johnson finished 2nd in his Ford Mustang, with Peter Brock finishing
third in his near standard Holden Commodore. All Credit Channel 7 Sport
The first round of the series also created history when for the first time
since the ATCC was first held in 1960, no Holden of any sort was on the
grid. The race also saw the first ever ATCC race win by a BMW with Richards
winning by a lap from his JPS team mate Neville Crichton. Volvo also joined
the winners list when Kiwi Robbie Francevic won Round 3 at Symmons Plains
in Tasmania in his Volvo 240T. Still a resident of Auckland, Francevic's
win also saw him become the first non-Australian resident to win an ATCC

More at http://www.v8.co.nz. At the Muscle Car Masters 2009 from Eastern
Creek, Central Muscle Cars show the Aussies how to put on a show, but it
all ends with carnage and some damaged machinery. The 3 main classes are
Group NC (1965-1972), Group C (from 1973-1984) and Group A (1985-1992) -
all genuine racecars from those eras, driven by Jim Richards, John Bowe,
Glenn Seton and other Aussie legends. There are plenty of pristine muscle
cars to drool over - Holden Commodore, HQ and Torana, Ford Falcon and Mustang, AMC Javelin, Chevy
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.
