My Ups and Downs

Well this week has definitely been a weird one. It started off with the passing of Steve Erwin and just then I found out that one of Australia's most successful racing drivers, Peter Brock, was killed in a rally accident. Peter Brock is famous for winning 9 Bathurst 1000's in his career. Winning 9 Bathurst 1000's is like winning 9 Indy 500's and is truly an amazing feat. Peter Brock was one of my childhood idols and I even met him a few times at different races at Phillip Island when me and my family used to go there. His death came as quite a big surprise and I'm sure his life will be celebrated over the next few days. Another legend passes.

Hey Spud, thanks for leaving a comment on my Blogiorno, the one about Monica Bellucci. I really like that "visitors to date" counter you have on your blog. Also, sorry about Peter Brock...I'm huge into rally and F1 and motogp racing myself...just went to the Motogp race at Laguna Seca here in California...I live about 1 hr and 20 min south of the circuit. Cheers.
