No driver is as connected to a track as the legendary Peter Brock is to Bathurst. October 2019 marks half a century since a shy and bearded Brock first took on the turns of Mount Panorama, the track he was destined to dominate with a record nine wins, earning him the mantle ‘King of the Mountain’.
That uncanny relationship between driver and track is the focus of this book, a 360-degree look at every race of Brock’s glorious Bathurst career. Relive Peter Perfect’s reign over the Mountain in the company of Bev Brock, his partner of nearly three decades, as well as mechanics, teammates, rivals and friends, who witnessed his genius up close. Featuring hundreds of images, including previously unseen photographs from Brock’s private collection, BROCK AT BATHURST is a nostalgic and exhilarating celebration of an iconic pairing in Australian sport.
