Jason Richards will drive Tony Hunter's HQ Holden

Jason Richards will compete at Mount Panorama next weekend, driving a HQ Holden in the Touring Car Masters class.

The cancer stricken Kiwi star will drive a Holden HQ in the popular historic class, supporting the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.

The news of Richards’ race start at Bathurst comes on a good week for him after he received news from his doctors that the growth of his cancer has halted.

Richards has planned on attending the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 with his regular V8 team Brad Jones Racing, but says he is looking forward to the trip even more now that he has a race seat.

“John Bowe and Tony Hunter were the instigators of it. They’ve got it up and running,” Richards told Speedcafe.com.

“Tony is lending me his HQ Holden, and a camper van, so we’re going to do a bit of a family trip up to Bathurst.

“I’m looking forward to it. I enjoy racing those types of cars. I enjoyed racing in the Muscle Car Masters in the Torana, and that is one of the reasons why this came up.”
