Racing legend dead.


Melbourne born Peter Brock died today in a Targa West Tarmac Rally in Western Australia at around 11.50 this morning. Apparently his car ran into a tree after going off the road around Gidgegannup.
He was born in Melbourne in 1945 and won Bathurst nine times. He was 61.
It’s sad – first Steve Irwin, now Peter Brock – two Aussie personalities, both born in Melbourne, die within a week of each other.
