I seem to recall Brock racing in Belgium for the Spa round of the World Touring Car Championship 24-hour race in 1987, not just at Le Mans.

Hi Harv,

I did more research and yes indeed Peter Brock did much more racing outside of Australia than stated in my earlier COA Quiz post.

His international racing career included:

- Peter Brock won the Nissan Mobil 500 (New Zealand) in 1986, 1987 and 1990.

- Peter Brock won the Kings Cup for team finish (three Commodores) in the 1987 SPA 24 Hour Race and he came second in the same race in 1977 driving a Vauxhall Magnum 2.3 Litre

- Peter Brock also drove in the 1986 European TOCA Touring Car Champoinship. He didn't finish at Monza, came 5th at Donington and 5th again at Hockenhiem.

Thanks for picking up the factual error in my earlier post which I have now corrected.

Best regards





JEff G
