Peter Brock

He was the King of the Mountain - and much more besides. Inside the fast life and controversial times of a genuine Australian original.
Australia was mourning the loss of one of its greatest sporting figures September 8th 2006 after motor racing legend Peter Brock was killed when his car hit a tree during a rally in Western Australia.

He was competing in the three-day Targa West rally near Perth when he appeared to lose control of his high-powered Daytona Coupe in bushland and smashed side-on into a tree.

The motor racing legend died at the scene, while his co-driver Mick Hone was taken to hospital in a stable condition, apparently with broken ribs.

The accident occurred in wet conditions near the small community of Gidgegannup, about 40km north-east of Perth, hours after the start of the rally.

News of the death was greeted with shock throughout Australia and overseas, coming as it did just days after a stingray killed another Australian icon, Steve Irwin.
