Brocky - Peter's Own Story - A Life in Top Gear

Publisher's Notes: When Peter Brock was tragically killed in 2006, the outpouring of grief from around Australia revealed how this charismatic hero had touched the nation like few other sporting champions. He transcended his own sport through his movie star looks and the power of his personality, but it was on great race circuits like Bathurst that the legend was forged. ‘BROCKY’ is his very own story of a remarkable career. Most of it was written before his death, and was checked and approved by the man himself. It is therefore as close to an authorised biography as there can be. This is the story of his life in top gear, as he wanted it told. Written by long-time friend and collaborator David Hassall, an award-winning motoring journalist, the book covers his turbulent relationship with Holden, the infamous Polarizer and recalls all the great races that made the Brock legend, taking you behind the scenes of an intriguing and often controversial sport. Apologies - in our initial promotion of this title, we advised that the book was 282 pages, it is in fact 204.
