My mum is well into her 80s, grew up with my obsession of Mr Moffat. Thus PB was "the enemy"
She has no interest in car racing but she watched it,
she said to me after watching the doco
"He was a good man, unless you were married to him, like so many men."

The oddly, for a John Harvey biography (and yes I am dragging out this joke for the umpteenth time) titled Rise and Fall of Peter Brock.

It is a great read about John's days at the speedway, then with Bob Jane and the HDT with Harry Firth and of course his time with Brock.

It also features a couple of chapters on Brock.

1. It's a docu-drama
2. Like so many people, these accusations only surface once the person being accused is no longer around to refute or defend themselves. That to me means we should at the very least just not presume them to be true.

I was too young when PB passed away to have seen him at his peak, and I knew of the rumours that Peter was less perfect away from the crowds.

The old adage itís made round to go around.

In this world, no one is perfect, even a gentleman like meself will pass wind, dip my teddy bear biscuit in my morning coffee and take the opportunity to have a purve on the cute office lady.

Brocky might have gone a bit strange with the polariser gobbledygook, but he could drive a race car, promote Holden, promote motorsport and has given us some wonderful motorsport memories.

Yep I have that book, and with me being a long time Brock fan (from about 1972), it took me almost 20 years before I brought the book knowing it was not going to complimentary to my hero
