Richard L Thomas
Richard is a globe-trotting Chartered Accountant who has swapped his days of bungy-jumping in Greece and working for PwC, for life in the fast lane at é25! Richard’s dream is to host an event which combines champagne, cars, and singing, so don’t be surprised if you get an invite to the first é25 Karaoke Evening at some stage – the rest of the team advise you to politely decline! Richard’s favourite car still remains the Ferrari 430 Spider, because nothing will ever lessen the joy of his first Ferrari experience driving along Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

As well as running the show Paul is also the most advanced of the advanced drivers! Chiefly he completes all road tests of the cars on a regular basis, especially at weekends, and has the best excuses for stone chips, kerbed alloys and worn tyres! Favourite car – SLS AMG because it is the most fun you can have with your clothes on!
James spent 15 years running Grand Prix Racewear – a leading motorsport equipment retailer, before getting involved with écurie25. An absolute petrolhead and wannabe racing driver, James enjoys nothing more than joining a Road Rally or Members Track Day to keep the petrol running through his veins! Favourite Cars; Ferrari 458 Italia, and Audi R8 V10 Spyder.
Minette runs the show. She ensures that the rest of the Brisbane tean are making sure the member experience is first class. With a long history of driving American muscle cars, Minette is now enjoying the Italian way of life! Favourite car - Ferrari F430 because it's what her Little Red Corvette always wanted to be!
Jocelyn is all about the écurie25 parties and joined the company to run the calendar of exclusive e25 events held around the world. When we launched our NY clubhouse she could not resist the opportunity to head to the Big Apple and is loving every minute of it! Favorite car has to be the McLaren MP4-12C because it is the sexiest car in the collection...and her club was the first to get one - well done her!
Nathan looks after the overall running of the Sydney club as well as supporting the development of ecurie25 in Australia. He was one of the first members of ecurie25 in the UK joining in early 2006 and in the words of Victor Kiam, he liked the company so much he bought it! Favourite car is currently the Lamborghini LP560-4 Spyder. It's loud, it's fast and looks fantastic from every angle and always puts a smile on your face when you drive it.
Co Managing Director
Justin Blackburn grew up in Colorado. He fell in love with Ferraris when he saw Christy Brinkley drive the famous 308 past Chevy Chase in the hit movie Vacation and spent many years working on his own cars pulling every last available horsepower out of each of them. He co-founded Lone Star Exotics in Denver before moving the business to Austin in 2010. A licensed professional racing driver, Justin enjoys spending time at the track and driving anything he can get his hands on. He currently is saving his pennies for a McLaren F1, his most elusive dream car.
Karen – the better half of the marriage to Paul, is the mini whirlwind who ensures all prospects are contacted, monies collected and keeps a tab on Paul’s new car expenditure! Favourite car – Ferrari F430 – The first car we bought!
Co Managing Director
Jacob White grew up in Austin before moving to Denver where he worked for Chrysler. Whilst there he rented a car from Lone Star Exotics and fell in love with the experience. Fast forward a couple of years and he and Justin became business partners in the venture. Jacob was instrumental in bringing the business to his hometown of Austin. A true Viper fanatic, Jacob is looking forward to the new 2013 SRT Viper and credits the original Viper with helping him fall in love with horsepower and cars that have it. Jacob is also a motorcycle fanatic and can be found politely guiding his R1 through the streets of Austin.
Juliette looks after all our members every whim and fancy (within reason) and brings a calm to everyday proceedings, except at parties when she “moves like Jagger”! – Favourite car – Lamborghini LP560-4 Spyder – when asked why she said it is “because I look good in it”.
David is our resident 'STIG'! He provides the driver training for new members and more advanced driving courses for those that want to get the most out of their time behind the wheel of our fleet. He also helps with member engagement and handover and collection in the Gold Coast. Having been in and around motor sport for many years, who and what David doesn;t know, isn't worth knowing! Favourite car - he's the Team Director for the Lamborghini Race team in Asia...need we say more....
