“I gave him a call and asked if he could help us out with donating something for the auction website. He was absolutely delighted to help. He is a huge motorsport fan and obviously very saddened by the news of Jason Richards.”
As a pre-event publicity stunt, Green got the privilege of driving Paul Morris' Fujitsu V8 Supercar at Barbagallo Raceway – and he spun off the track. CLICK HERE to see Speedcafe.com's news story and video after the drive.
