Shannons and Gangsta Wraps join forces to produce a tribute to Jim Richards

By Shannons - 05 February 2019

Jim Richards competed in his last Targa in Tasmania in 2018. Jim has won the world-famous Targa Rally 8 times with his long-time friend and navigator Barry Oliver, and now in 2019, Shannons present this tribute to Jim Richards. A 1978 Porsche 911SC featuring the same livery as Jim's 2018 GT3RS that competed in the 2018 Targa Tasmania.

Shannons QLD Business Development Manager Phil Ross who owns the 911SC chose Gangsta Wraps to adapt the livery from Jim's late model GT3RS Porsche on to the older 1978 911.


“Gangsta Wraps have done some amazing wraps on so many different cars that there was really only one choice when it came to trusting the job to someone,” said Phil Ross. "We are really happy to be joining forces with Gangsta Wraps to put this together. The enthusiasm that Gangsta Wraps have in all their work runs in sync with how we do business here at Shannons, we both share the passion”.
