The wife of the racing legend Peter Brock marked her late husband’s fortieth anniversary since his first win at Bathurst by joining Denis Walter in studio.

Beverley Brock has released a compilation of moments which defined the life of the motor racing legend entitled ‘Peter Brock: Celebrating the life of Peter Brock through his family and friends, personal collections of photos, memorabilia and personalised letters.

Beverley explained she released the book because racing was only one tenth of his life and she wanted the public to understand and relate to the real person who was Peter Brock, who bred finches and was deeply philosophical.

”He was a very public figure and therefore people thoght they knew him, but he was also incredibly private,” she said.

”Peter was an incredibly complex person, he had many facets to him and one of them was seeking to become the best person he could be.”

Together Peter and Beverley started the racing merchandise industry, and Beverley told Denis Walter how on one occasion in 1980, she had $180,000 store in the glove box of her car – and the keys were given to someone else.
