Tribute to Peter Brock
I have seen many great tributes to Peter Brock and have been meaning for
some time to put together one of my own, and here it is finally. Yes, my
blood runs blue, I am a die hard Ford fan, but Peter did what no other
driver has ever been able to do - he brought together Holden and Ford fans,
united in grief at his loss. Please feel free to rate and comment but
derogatory comments will be deleted immediately so don't bother.
Background music is "Is this the end" by Creed and no I don't own the
copyright to the music or any pictures, but they have been used simply to
honour this truly great individual.
Huge Big Rig Race Crash! June 2002 Calgary
Scary Big Rig Race Crash June 2002 Calgary. (Crash at the 2:00 mark)
One of the scariest moments I caught in all my 25 years covering racing at
Race City. Look for #76, the star and stripes Peterbilt get pinched and
wrecked into the corner three wall at the 1:59 mark. Fortunately the driver
suffered only minor injuries despite having to be rescued by safety crew
with jaws of life. The destruction was staggering, however the truck
cockpit stayed together due in part to the construction and thought given
to protecting the driver. The race was red flagged in less than five
seconds, Race City recue crew was on his truck in less than 30 seconds. I
will follow this up with an interview with Mike (the racer) I conducted a
Denny Hulme - The Simplest of Things Can Take Away...
Denny Hulme died during the 1992 Tooheys 1000 from Bathurst. He suffered a
heart attack at the wheel of his BMW M3, and was pronounced dead at
Denny was one of my heroes, and it was heartbreaking to watch his life end,
live on television in front of my eyes.
I post this video to remind everyone, that even the simplest of things in a
motor vehicle can be life threatening.
Make sure your health is good. Make sure you are not tired. Make sure you
are concentrating. Keep drugs and alcohol out of your system.
Denny had reported on the radio that he wasn't feeling well, but he pushed
on - and we lost a champion.
Be safe - on track, or on the road.
