Just confirmed, he was killed during a race in WA when he left the track and hit a tree.
I think that terrorists are targetting Aussie icons. Rumours that he was hit by a ’74 Corvette are incorrect and in bad taste.
A legend of Australian motor sports and an all round nice guy, they didn’t call him Peter Perfect for nothing. His wiki entry has already been updated, amazing.
Peter Brock died at the age of 61, in a racing accident after colliding with a tree during TargaWest ’06 in Western Australia September 8, 2006, near the township of Gidgegannup. Brock was driving with Mick Hone in a Daytona Coupe.
Traditionally these things happen in threes, first Steve Irwin, now Peter Brock..I’m hoping for Paris Hilton to be eaten by a bear, just to restore the balance of the universe.
