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!

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.
