Peter Brock Dies in WA Race Accident

MOTOR sports legend Peter Brock has reportedly been killed in an accident in Western Australia.

Brock was thought to have been driving in the Targa West rally, and Sky News has reported that he was killed during a special stage.

The channel reported Brock's car collided with a tree, leaving him with fatal injuries.

Brock turned 61 last February.

He was driving with Mick Hone in a Daytona Coupe, but the full circumstances of the accident remain unclear.

The Targa West takes place over four days and is divided into two categories, competition and challenge, the latter catering for relatively standard specification road cars.

The rally began in Perth yesterday.

Race organisers said an announcement would be made soon.

They would confirm only that an accident had taken place. More to come
