I've had to come to terms with a few days that have been even worse, usually concerning a death in the family. But having said that, the day Brock died was immensely sad and shocking, for myself and many many others. Indeed, it was a very surreal feeling. I still can't believe he's not around anymore.

The worst day of my life

Yeah it still seems surreal. September 8 used to be just another day of the year, now it will be a sad occasion and will be forever.

It was definately the week from hell...

RIP Brocky

well almost a year on and i still cant believe he is gone. i was having a clean up today and i came across the motorsport news issue on brocks death. had a read through it again and thought about some of the great memories. then at lunch time i got AA and came accross a special tribute next week they are doing, a year on. so that should be a good read too.

I just finished watching his DVD "Peter Brock The Legend" and i really struggled to get to the end and that was only the first DVD.

Has anyone got the footage of the 79 win? I want to put it behind my A9X diecast on a small LCD screen but i cant find much around.

I think the Brock family would be a bit overwhelmed to see not just us paying our respects but in the Newsagency just about anything that do with wheels have a decent article about the King of the mountain.

I myself have a Auto Action about Peter Brock, What about you? It was sold out preety fast.

Tree at Brock accident scene cut down
Thursday Oct 12 19:32 AEST
The tree that cost the life of Peter Brock has been cut down to prevent accidents being caused by people stopping on the steep bend to pay tribute.

The 61-year-old motor racing legend was killed on September 8 when he lost control of his car in the Targa West rally on a picturesque rural road at Gidgegannup in the Perth hills.

His high-powered car slammed side-on into the tree, killing him instantly.

Fans have been regularly visiting the battered tree since the accident, leaving floral tributes and cards in memory of the Australian hero.

But their visits have worried the City of Swan which fears accidents might happen due to people stopping, or parking on the narrow gravel verge, near the tree which is on a sharp bend with little visibility.

Other cars coming down the steep hill might not see them stopped on the road, or pulling in or out of the road verge, in time to prevent an accident.

Shire chief executive Mike Foley said the tree was cut down in the interests of road safety, following advice from main roads and police.

"Unfortunately the exact location of the crash is not suitable for a memorial and is unsafe for people to gather or park their cars, as it is on a bend with low visibility," Mr Foley said.

He said the tree was badly damaged in the accident and unlikely to survive.

The tree has been taken to the council depot and a decision on its future will be made at a later date.

Using it as part of a memorial is an option, a shire spokeswoman said.

Gidgegannup residents have said the spot where Brock died was notoriously dangerous and locals were constantly having to pull cars or motor bikes out of the ditch.

"Someone" I heard was the Local Council - responsible for this sort of thing in the area.

You seriously think that PB would slip up like that??? The assumption alone is bordering outrageous to say the least!!

From the daily telegraph

MOTOR racing legend Peter Brock drove "like a computer" on the rally stage which claimed his life, police have said.

Senior-Constable Alun Mills said finding a cause of the tragedy has been made harder by the fact his highly skilled driving showed little variation at critical stages.

Brock's braking, acceleration and use of gears among other indicators were remarkably similar at comparable places throughout the Targa West Rally stage.

Sen-Constable Mills, of Western Australia's major crash investigation section, said Brock took corners similar to that on which he died within a 1km range of speed.

"It's not like he (went) into the other corners at 40km/h and this one (the fatal corner) at 80km/h,'' he said.

Sen-Constable Mills said the exact cause may never be known and his office may need to present the West Australian coroner with a range of possible scenarios.

"I don't think we'll ever get a needle point on it,'' Sen-Constable Mills said.

"It's like a computer driving the car. You're trying to find something that's not normal in his driving and it's not there.''

The case is one of Australia's most detailed crash investigations. Data from the Cobra Daytona coupe's black-box recorder, which recorded performance indicators, is still being retrieved to provide a precise picture of what happened.

Video footage shot from within and outside the car on September 8 is also being used.

Police are yet to receive the results of a survey they did of the corner where Brock lost control of the car and slammed into a tree.

Sen-Constable Mills said the survey's detailed recording of elements like road gradient, camber and surface may reveal why Brock crashed at a speed at which he safely negotiated other corners.
Brock's agent and close friend Tim Pemberton denied fatigue may have contributed to the crash, in which navigator Mick Hone suffered broken ribs.

Funny, I havent heard all the knobs like dunkerton saying sorry for all the "he was to old and tired to be doing all he was doing, must have been fatigued or going too fast" crap
