A Holden Special Vehicles fanatic and racing car fan has become $100,000 richer when he was presented with a cheque from Gold Coast-based property developer No Limit Group.

As part of their sponsorship of the Supercheap Auto Racing (SCAR) Team in 2006, No Limit Group teamed up with Holden Special Vehicles in a $145,000 prize giveaway, with first prize being $100,000 cash from No Limit Group.

Stephen Vesperman, an illustrator from Newcastle, was announced as the winner in December and made the trip to the Gold Coast recently to collect his winnings.

Mr Vesperman who drives a HSV Grange entered the draw while checking out the latest E series models on the company’s website.

The lucky winner said he was in disbelief when V8 Supercar champion Greg Murphy called him at his home to announce his good fortune.

Mr Vesperman said although he recognised the V8 champ’s voice he thought it might have been a prank, and said it took the SCAR team driver a good 10 minutes to convince him of his win.

"No one rings to say you’ve won $100, 000,” said Mr Vesperman.

Mr Vesperman said he would be using his large cash bonus to become debt-free and put a deposit on a house.

“It is a second chance at getting ahead that I never expected to have,” said Mr Vesperman.

Upon presenting the cheque to Mr Vesperman, No Limit Financial Controller, Cameron Woods said he was pleased to see the money going to such a deserving recipient.

“We’re really pleased at the end result, and wish Stephen all the best.

“Our association with Supercheap Auto Racing and the V8 Supercar series in 2006 has successfully helped us to increase awareness of the No Limit Group.

“It’s great that through this process we are also able to extend such fantastic opportunities as this to fans of the V8s,” said Mr Woods.

No Limit Group operates nationally and has divisions in residential property development, seniors’ supported community accommodation development and management, commercial property investment / management and residential property management.
