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!
