The statement given on the podium will never be forgotten:

“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 going to remain with me for a long time, you’re a pack of arseholes” — Jim Richards – Bathurst 1992
