In 1967 Peter Brock got behind the wheel of an Austin A30 to take part in his first race. Almost forty years later, Peter’s fame and popularity stretch far beyond motor racing. He has become one of Australia’s best-loved sports stars, and despite his official retirement in 1997 he remains more in the public eye – and in demand – than ever.
But who is Peter Brock? His extraordinary performances on the track are well recorded, but what of the man himself? In this fascinating book, Bev Brock, Peter’s partner and soul mate of three decades, describes the person behind the driver – passionate, optimistic and graceful under pressure. It is a perspective filled with love, but also by informed rare honesty and humour. From childhood through the highs and lows of his motor racing career, and the family man that few get to see, Bev paints a vivid, inspiring and utterly candid portrait of the man his fans love to call ‘Peter Perfect’.
