Gracious in victory and defeat, Richards handled the crash in a way that sets an example for others, blaming no-one but himself and suggesting that one blip in 18 years of Targa isn't that bad a record. Proof that a champion doesn't always have to win.

There's something to aspire to.  I want to be more like Jim Richards.

I want his driving skill, and I want to get away with being known as a really nice guy, even after telling a huge crowd they're a pack of arseholes.   :thumbsup:

For those that need a memory refresher (I was at the back of that crowd on the ground, so I remember it vividly):

Ahh - I was just a pimply teenager who was just killing time between formula one races by playing video games and watching domestic motorsport, but remember that quite well. Australia: the master bogan breed :p
