The news of the shock death of Peter Brock this afternoon is another tragic blow. For years I've been a huge fan of Brockie,'Peter Perfect'. Years ago, at a race meeting at Lakeside racetrack just north of Brisbane, I met and talked with him at length. Peter Brock was a star. He was a hero of the motor world here in this country...our 'King of the Mountain'. Bathurst was his to claim a record nine times. He was such a good looking man, too. He was a bit of a hunk when young and he aged with style. What a driver!
This certainly has been a week of sudden tragedies. Peter Brock was a motor racing icon.
