Peter Brock Killed

February 26, 1945 - September 8, 2006

Well this week is becoming one of the worst for Australian Icon's deaths. Recently after the death of Steve Irwin comes more shock news of Peter Brock, the Holden King, being killed in a racing accident on the Targa West Rally in Western Australia.

Details are sketchy of the death but he will surely be missed on the Australian Racing circuit for many years to come. Back in the old Holden Torana's to the 05 Commodores, Peter will be known as an Austalian Legend.

Cheers to you Peter, you will be loved forever as the true Holden Man!!!
Believe it or not: Peter Brock was driving a 1969 Corvette Stingray. Steve Irwin was killed by a stingray. Coincidence or have the Stingrays got it out for Aussie Icons.

Please note he wasnt driving a Stingray but it makes a more interesting story than him driving a Daytona Coupe. Also my comments mean no disrespect to Peter, he was a true hero and always will be 'King of the Mountain'.
