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.

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

Bathurst 1972 Hardie Ferodo 500
Here is an old Bathurst 1972 500 special. This is the race that started the Peter Brock legend and the first Torana win in the mighty 6 cylinder GTR XU-1. It was later called Bathurst 1000 when they changed to kilometres.

One Lap Race of Bathurst - Speed Comparison between Holdens - Peter Brock Mark Skaife
A one lap race at Mount Panorama, Bathurst between a 1979 Holden A9X Torana, a 2004 Holden VZ SS Commodore & a 2004 Holden VZ Commodore V8 Supercar. It's interesting to see how far racing technology has progressed. The V8 Supercar happens to be the same car as my 1/6th Radio controlled version, as featured in some of my other clips.





Brock Returns to Holden
After three years away - one with BMW, and two with Ford, between 1988 and 1990 - Peter Brock returned to Holden in partnership with his old team-mate and engineer, Larry Perkins. Here's a segment produced by Neil Crompton to usher in the new team for 1991.

Peter Brock: The last studio interview In Pit Lane
I had thought this was already up on YouTube but it appears not. So in response to those who want to see it once again here is our special interview show with Brocky recorded on the eve of him leaving for The Goodwood Revival. Less than 2 weeks later he was gone, killed in a crash while competing in the Targa West Tarmac Rally in Western Australia. To this day it's hard to watch this without feeling so sad, and also wondering just what Brock would be doing now. It'd be something pretty exciting I would imagine. Sorry about the quality but it was encoded as a podcast back when podcasts were really small.
