Just finished reading, 24 Hours 100 Years of Le Mans by Richard Williams.

A 468 page tome, that is a very enjoyable read on the history of this great event and how it originated.

It's finally happening. He's releasing one in June. You can a sneak peak here:

Gentleman Jim, The Offical Racing History of Jim Richards a 400 page tome covering his racing career starting in NZ, Australia and the odd foray overseas.

Multiple winner at Bathurst, Targa Tasmania and the Australian Touring Car Champion.

Driven for the Marlboro Holden Dealer Team, the factory Nissan team, JPS BMW and basically anything with a steering wheel!

Also famous for the heated comment after 1992 Bathurst, when he referred to the assembled disgruntled drunk crowd below the presentation Dias as a pack of @rseholes!
