Peter Brock Tour launches at Sandown

The Peter Brock Trophy tour has launched at this weekend’s Sandown 500 ahead of a month long expedition concluding at the fabled Mountain for the Repco Bathurst 1000.

Sandown is the perfect venue to launch the Peter Brock Tour as the traditional lead in event to the Repco Bathurst 1000 and is another event where the legendary driver also secured nine victories to match his same number of success at Mount Panorama.

In fact, Brock achieved seven Sandown victories in a row between 1975-1981, while also nearly emulating the feat at Bathurst where he scored two hattrick results in 1978-1980 and 1982-1984.

The Peter Brock Trophy already visited arguably the mecca of Australian sport, the Melbourne Cricket Ground and will head to regional centres of New South Wales to spread the word about the Great Race.

Moving from Sandown, the Peter Brock Trophy Tour heads to Albury, which is the birthplace of 2017 Bathurst winner David Reynolds and the home of current Repco Supercars Championship team Brad Jones Racing.

Moving from Albury to Wagga Wagga, the Peter Brock Trophy Tour then moves to the Canberra before moving to Wollongong and Australia’s biggest city, Sydney.

Before arriving at Mount Panorama, Orange is the next destination for the Peter Brock Trophy Tour as celebrations begin for the Great Race’s 60th anniversary at Bathurst.

Moving from Phillip Island to Bathurst for the 1963 edition, the 1000 has enjoyed an unbroken run of 60 events as it defied the recent pandemic to continue when many large sporting events worldwide were cancelled.

Of course, the Peter Brock Trophy is the cherished piece of silverware received by the winners of the Repco Bathurst 1000 in honour of the nine-time victor of the event, who passed away in 2006.

The first drivers to win the Peter Brock Trophy were Craig Lowndes and Jamie Whincup in an emotionally thrilling race.
