Peter Brock - Australian motor racing legend - dies in crash

Post by pr0gram the pr0grammer »

As if the death of one Australian icon, Steve Irwin, earlier this week wasn't tragic enough for Australia: Today at approximately 1:50PM, Peter Brock, an Australian motor racing legend, was killed in a car crash while taking part in the Targa West rally in Western Australia.

Peter Brock's achievements include winning the Bathurst 1000 a total of nine times during the 70's and 80's.

I'm personally finding it hard to believe that two Australian icons have died in the last five days. What is going on? This is another dark day for Australians.
