first memories of Peter Brock are right from the very start of his
driving career when I was just a kid. The only reason I started
following Peter’s pursuits was that my father owned an Austin Freeway at
the time and of course Peter raced an Austin, albeit an A30.
I remember watching a Channel 0 telecast
from Phillip Island. Peter in the A30 had
race long duel with future
Bathurst partner Brian Sampson in his Triumph Spitfire.
They continued to battle for the entire slowdown lap after the race was
Defunct magazine Australian Autosportsman
interviewed Peter Brock in December, 1968. Peter
is quoted as saying “I'd like to race
the real thing- open-wheelers; my ambition has always been to be
a good racing driver. To go as far as I can go, if I can.”
