Never forgotten

Less than a week until the biggest event on the Australian motorsport calendar, and with impeccable timing my son last night gave me a fantastic book about Peter Brock. It has replicas of all kinds of memorabilia in it - but there's one thing included for which I already have an original. In 1981 the Bathurst Chamber of Commerce and Industry minted a medallion to commemorate the proclamation of Bathurst, and it featured the winners of the 1980 James Hardie 1000 - Peter Brock and Jim Richards. I still have mine, inside its protective plastic sleeve and mounted on the original display card; it's a treasure I'll not part with.

Book here: Peter Brock, by Beverley Brock
