In memory of racing legend Peter Brock.
A tragic racing accident which claimed the life of a great man doing what he does best.
Brock started out with the Holden Racing Team in 1969 guided by Harry Firth. An unrivalled 9 outright Bathurst wins to his credit, with the first in 1973, then ’75, ’78, ’79, 80, ’82, ’83, ’84 and ’87, and 2003 he also won the Bathurst 24 hr race! Brock claimed 37 wins in the Australian Touring Car/V8 Supercar Championship, a record unmatched until this year by Mark Skaif, and won the championship 3 times. Brock also won the Sandown endurance race 9 times, 7 of those in a row. In 1997 he also came second in the Spa 24hr race and competed in Le Mans 24 hr endurance. He "retired" from racing after Bathurst in 1979 before making more than a few comebacks, eventually limiting himself to "fun" events, like the one which ended his brillian racing career, the Quit Targa West tarmac rally in South Australia. My thoughts go out to is loved ones and his immense racing "family".
