Legendary V8 Supercar driver Steve Richards was a special guest at TAFE Western’s Automotive department in Dubbo yesterday.
Steve and his Laser Plumbing and Electrical Porsche stopped in at the Narromine Road site on their way back from the Tamworth Motorshow en route to Melbourne.
“It was great to have Steve stop off and not only show off his Porsche and transporter to many adoring students, but also talk to them about how the car runs and highlights of his car racing career,” TAFE Western Light Automotive Department Head Teacher Paul Chaseling said.
“His presence at the TAFE Western College was a real highlight for the students.”
Steve, who currently drives the Porsche in the Australian Carrera Cup Championship, has a huge following in the central west as a four-time Bathurst 1000 V8 Supercar Championship winner. He also won the Bathurst 12-hour race back in 2002.
“We’d just like to thank Laser Plumbing and Electrical Dubbo for making this opportunity possible,” Paul said.
