Geeeeeez whats going on?

Brockie might not have been well known globally but he sure was an Aussie icon,i thought he retired from racing for good.

Just saw it on the TV they said Peter Brock feared dead.they comfirmed one person dead but did`nt comfirm who.

Rest in Peace Peter Brock!
I guess, he too died what he loved doing best.....Racing!
Hit a tree, I think!
He was retired though.....The passenger was hurt and is in hospital.

Yeah you got that right Helen,sad part about it is if he was racing on a track it would be highly unlikely to be fatal.

Another true legend it their field gone,sad indeed.

I used to organize his gas deliveries, he was a lovely man and will be greatly missed.
Such a shame

RIP Brocky
