Four-time Bathurst winner, Steve Richards will drive into Goondiwindi on October 25 to raise money for the Goondiwindi Hospital
Working with the teams behind Laser Plumbing & Electrical Goondiwindi, Steve will have with him, the Laser Porsche which he races as part of the Porsche Carrera Cup.
Managing Director of Laser Plumbing Goondiwindi, Harle Gall is excited to be bringing Steve to town to the town, enabling racing fans to meet the race car driver and sit in the car that is currently placed 5th in this year’s series.
“Through our relationship with Laser Plumbing & Electrical, we are extremely lucky to have access to one of Australia’s favourite race car champions, Steve Richards,” Harle said.
The 2014 Porsche Carrera Cup Champion, Steve will also be driving the transporter, which has become a crowd favourite on its own, enabling fans to get up close to the equipment used by the race team. Steve will be available for autographs and photos as well as giving away signed posters.

Goondiwindi Hospital Director of Nursing Lorraine McMurtrie is grateful for the support. “All funds raised will go toward furnishings for the ambulatory care area. The new recliners and bed tables will be a welcomed addition to the hospital,” she said.
“On behalf of the staff and patients of the Goondiwindi Hospital I would like to thank the local Laser Plumbing and Electrical for their kind gesture.”
As well as the fundraising on the day, there will also be a raffle with the prize being a weekend away for two at the Sebel Coolangatta. Tickets can be purchase at Laser Plumbing and Laser Electrical offices in Goondiwindi.
