Peter Brock, The King of the Mountain, will forever be a legend in the Australian motorsports community.
The nine-times Bathurst 1000 endurance race winner’s untimely death in 2006 sent shockwaves through Australia, but his legacy lives on. Not only through the permanent memorial dedicated to him at Sandown Raceway and the memories of his fans, but also within the walls of Dreamworld’s Brock’s Garage exhibition on the Gold Coast. We take a closer look at how fans can pay tribute to Brocky at this exciting installation, and what’s in store for Holden lovers through the display of Brock’s extensive racing collection.
Brock’s Garage: a gateway to classic Holden race cars
