A sad week for Australia

I didn't post anything about Steve Irwin earlier this week. Mainly that was due to the fact that between me hearing about it, and arriving home, there were already dozens of sites and blogs with their take one the tragedy.

But today Australia lost another true hero. Peter Brock was one of the greatest race car drivers that Australian racing has ever seen. The winner of nine Bathurst 1000 races, a champion of road safety, and an all round great Australian. Brock died when his car ran off the road during a leg of the Targa West Rally in Western Australia. He died the way he lived, going fast and loving it.

There will never be another "Brockie".
