As part of John Bowe’s ongoing fundraising for Jason Richards’ daughters Olivia and Sienna, the two-time Bathurst 1000 winner is auctioning off a very rare chance to enjoy a lap of Mount Panorama on the Saturday of this weekend’s Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 event.

In a silent auction, three people will have the chance to sit alongside Bowe as he takes you for a lap of the famous circuit aboard a FPV GT.

To score the rare opportunity, you will need to be at Bathurst this Saturday, and have to place a bid in the silent auction.

Entry into the silent auction closes on Wednesday, so be fast!

This is one of a number of initiatives that Bowe has created to generate funds for the ‘Olivia and Sienna Education Fund.’

Bowe, close friends with Richards who died in December last year, says that it is a cause that is close to his heart.

“Jase wanted the best for his family, and the future of his girls is what any dad would want … the best,” he said.

“We have tried to adopt the position of delivering what Jase would have provided for his family. Charlotte (JR’s widow) and I have identified the girls’ education as the most vital contribution we can make, so the Olivia and Sienna Education Fund has been established. The support has been overwhelming, but certainly not surprising.

“We’re still selling our t-shirts and hats. They will be available at Bathurst this weekend, but this rare opportunity for the Ultimate Bathurst Experienc, is to ensure we deliver on our promise – to take care of Olivia and Sienna.”
