He passed away peacefully on Friday and should be remembered for his great feat that I don't think will ever be matched which was winning world titles on both 2 wheels and 4.


Well said - sums up the hypocrisy of LG and the fordies -

Should've been knighted years ago. A travesty that he hasn't.

A legend.



RIP LJ - loved and never forgotten.

"It was dry for the second go-around. Grice, nervous, worrying about his Bathurst jinx, ran 2:25.9. The amazing Brock, using every last centimetre of bitumen, yet keeping the car straight and balanced and at full noise, came back with a staggering 2:20.0 as if to say: "Match that". And people just shook their heads, bit their lips and wondered who would be second".

The Peter Brock trophy is now where it belongs.

Definitely is sad news. He was the oldest surviving Formula One champion, after our own Sir Jack Brabham passed three years ago.
