    Steve Irwin was taking too long to get to heaven so he asked Peter Brock for a lift.

    :D

    I can see Germaine Greer's column now: "Peter Brock didn't just want to drive in harmony with nature. He wanted to dominate it."

    It's pretty unreal. Myself I just really couldn't imagine either one dying, but now.[face_plain]:([face_worried]:_|

    It's very sad. I'm not a revhead, but I was still a fan of Brock's.

    And Sainty, I don't see a Greer article coming, as Brock was a vegan. :p

    I'm sure she'll find something to B$&*^ about though.

    He probably ran over a lot of snails, or something.

    Wow, I only just heard about this from someone tonight?I had no idea. I was shocked. Especially after the recent death of Irwin.

    In all honesty when it comes to motor racing I would be in the "don't care" category. However Brocky was known to everyone. So sad. :(




    Who will now outsmart the little green frog in those commercials? :p
