Peter Brock ...

By Gary_Williams  
An Australian racing legend who sadly lost his life yesterday, aged 61, in an accident in the Targa Rally in Western Australia.

This was taken last Sunday, September 3rd, at the Goodwood Revival when Peter was driving the David Cooke Chevrolet 1965 Corvette Sting Ray. He was driving this beast to the edge of its limits, and indeed over them.

With the death of Steve Irwin, a sad week for Australia.

Exposure: 1/320s @ f8

Feel free to comment or critique.

Cheers,

Gary

A very bad week, Brocky and indeed Steve will both be sorely missed....but not forgotten. I was always amazed how Peter cuold jump in anything and drive the pants off it straight away. Thanks for uploading this shot Gary, its a beauty.

Hmmm... I commented on this a long time ago but I don't see my comment!

Yes, it has been a bad month for Australia. You did capture this quite well. Nice and sharp with plenty of room ahead ot it.
