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!

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.
