    Unhappy Peter Brock is Dead

    http://au.news.yahoo.com/060908/23/10ghs.html

    OMG!!!

    I don't know how many of you will know who Brocky is, but he is an absolute legend in Australia. He is a racing car champion, including winning The Bathurst 1000, 9 times.

    This is just too much!

    I know Dingo, I am just blown away by this. I had just logged off WS to my homepage and there it was. I cannot believe it. I am stunned.

    They say things come in 3's, lets hope not. 2 Aussie legends in 1 week is 2 too many.

    OMG

    They do say things happen in threes, geez....2 Aussies in one week dying doing what they loved.
    I wonder if he died instantly, let's hope so.

    I don't follow car racing at all, but most certainly everyone knows Brockie!
    Always thought he seemed like a nice guy.
    His poor kids.

    To Dear Brockie...

    oh boy, another broken hearted day.

    Peter Brock was an Aussie legend not just for few years but for over 30 years.
    What a way to go.
    RIP BROCKIE. You will be missed on the Mount.

    OMG another aussie icon lost, hes a legend even if you don't follow the sport.

    Just like Steve hes died doing what he loves most, I just hope it was quick and he didn't suffer.

    "They say, things happen in 3's" Oh i hope not!

    Steve and Brockie in just 1 week, that's a hell of a lot of Aussie tears being shed just with those 2 another legend/icon lost would be .......devastating!

    R.I.P Brockie (Peter Perfect) and thanks for the memories

    I too, have never heard of Peter Brock here in America, but what a blow for Australia to lose another legend. So sorry for your loss.

    Hey Dingo My sentiments exactly, Thanks guys.

    My youngest dau and her boyfriend are in New Zealand on holidays. I rang to tell them because Adam is a huge Brocky fan and I didn't want him to hear it on TV.

    Nikki sent me a msg later, saying that he is just devastated. Too sad.

    Brock was "larger than life"

    King of the Mountain alright, he was a real winner

    My mate Ronnie is the biggest Holden fan and just loved Brockie, she is taking it hard, along with Steve it's all too much for her

    Can just see you hooning around town in that Dingo....lol
