Rest in peace Peter Brock
It is a week of tragedies. First Steve Irwin dies, now another Australian icon, motor racing champion and legend Peter Brock (aka Peter Perfect), has also died.
Peter was killed when his car hit a tree during a leg of the Targa West Rally near Gidgeganup about 40kms east of my home town Perth.
Its so sad. The crash occurred on a hairpin bend. It has been raining on and off all day (as I type I'm watching fork lightning and have been listening to thunder as a storm approaches from the West over the ocean) and the road was quite damp, and slippery.
