“I’m just really stunned for words, I can’t believe the reception. I thought Australian race fans had a lot more to go than this, this is bloody disgraceful. I’ll keep racing but I tell you what, this is gonna remain with me for a long time, you’re a pack of arseholes.”
- Jim Richards, after winning the controversial 1992 Bathurst 1000km in which former F1 Champion Denny Hulme died of a heart attack and had the race stopped 18 laps short of full race distance due to torrential rain. Infamously, the results were rolled back to two laps before red flag, to Lap 143, before Richards hit the wall at Forrest’s Elbow and suffered extensive damage.
