After an apprenticeship in Formula Junior, during which he won the Monaco support race in 1963, followed by an unhappy period with a limited Formula One programme with BRM in 1964, Richard went on to enjoy a shot at the big time with a Reg Parnell Racing Lotus-BRM in 1965, collecting a couple of sixth places. However, he raced sports cars for the next two seasons before joining BRM, replacing Mike Spence. His second place first time out, at Monaco, amazed all and sundry. Sadly, this form was never repeated and he was to race sports cars from then on, winning the Le Mans 24 Hours for Porsche in 1970. He continues to star on the historic racing scene.
