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.
