Bathurst 1987: That Old Brocky Magic
Another from the vault - and a clip from what turn out (eventually) to be Peter Brock's ninth and last Bathurst win. Coming home third on the day, the "winning" and "second place" Eggenberger Texaco Ford Sierra's were firstly cleared of having illegal fuel by the Tuesday after the race, but found to have illegally modified wheel arches and associated body work to allow them to run larger tyres on their cars. It took until June 1988, but Brock was declared the winner - but in this sequence in the rain in the closing laps of the race, we are reminded just how good the man was. Absolutely superlative car control, mixed with the happy-go-lucky mind of the man. Pure Brock magic!

Some of my old footage I found of 'King of the Mountain' Peter Brock as he tackles the world famous Goodwood Festival of Speed 2005 in the infamous Bathurst winning '84 Marlboro HDT VK Holden Commodore, it was an impressive display of driving as always from Peter 'Perfect'. If you were there that weekend or are just a Brocky fan feel free to leave a comment
