Brock. A sporting name as recognisable and admired as Bradman or Brabham. After three decades in motor racing, no other driver commands such broad public appeal as Peter Geoffrey Brock.
He is an Australian motor sport phenomenon. Widely regarded as one of the most gifted drivers of his generation, he resisted the magnetic pull of Europe early in his racing life to carve out a spectacularly successful career in the one country he wished to call home.
Sedan car racing has always been his passion. The ultimate challenge. Taking a car originally intended for normal road use and pushing it to the absolute limit in competition. On bitumen or dirt, Brock has proved a master of the art.
Yet despite his extraordinary winning record, life hasn't always been kind to Brock. But however tough the times, they have only served to highlight the man's single-mindedness, determination and resilience.
Now, in this beautifully produced tribute - illustrated by over one hundred stunning photographs - friends, family and foes celebrate the life of an Australian sporting legend: Peter Brock.
