This event is being held in memory of the great man Peter Brock, who through his dedication to motorsport and passion for the motor vehicle has in many ways touched many Australians hearts in some way or form. This year West Coast Commodores have the Peter Brock Foundation on board to support the now annual cruise that the club holds, to assist raising money for the charity as well as paying respects to the great man himself. The cruise will see us going to the site where Peter Brock, while competing in the Targa West Rally, crashed his Daytona Coupe into a tree and died in Gidgegannup on the 8th September 2006.

Details for the event –

We will be meeting at the Midland TAFE Car Park, entering from Llyod Street, at 9am for a 10:30am departure on Sunday the 9th September 2012.
For just a $10 donation to the Peter Brock Foundation, a cruise map will be given on the day.
In addition to the cruise this year, after we have paid our respect at the crash site, we will head back Chidlow Oval for a show and shine and BBQ. We will also have some trophies to give away on the day for the show and shine part of the event, and a huge raffle like last year’s event.

Please come along with West Coast Commodores to pay respects to Peter Brock as well as supporting the very worthwhile charity the Peter Brock Foundation. For more information on the foundation please visit www.peterbrockfoundation.com.au and more information about the club at www.westcoastcommodores.com

Hope to see you all there!
Regards
Phil Holling
West Coast Commodores President

I took a day off work with my son and went across the road to John Forrest National Park to see the man do his stuff, i managed to get a small video clip albeit not very good quality. Little did we know that the next stage was going to be his last RIP Brocky.

This will be a very large event, I wouldn't be surprised to see a decent police presence along the way. WCC are a very professional club and anyone that simply goes along to carry on like a hoon will be dealt with accordingly. It should be a good family atmosphere :)

Yer that looks like a private road with some stolen street signs.
Im sure the around the burbs driving will all be good, as you say the local
officers will no doubt see the convoy.
we are looking fwd to a great day now a hot 28, our final bit will be at the Cot beach.
hope to see heaps of HSV's. I'll have my camera at the ready for the pre 80's holdens.
cheers

Had a really good day today. The VK loved the drive (apart from the bolt in the tyre on the way home). Have many photo's which I will post up when I get some time to resize.....

There were many awesome machines out and about...

a great day had, well done to all the West Coast Commodore club helpers, I can only guess
their were 300 cars not counting the three with flashing lights!
great place to start, somehow everyone managed to park at the Peter brock memorial
I did not see one burn out just some loud bikes going past, the idea was to pay respect and
everyone seem to do exactly that, then hundreds of cars to look at, heaps of food and small
company shops, im surprised with such a big event a few performance shops did not setup
a tent at a local show ground for the show and shine, who one??. The event was well timmed, as the ? torana club was about half an hour ahead and was turning
back onto the main road as we turned off. yes although i did not like getting hit with a lazer
police in attendance, as warning by the club, would have helped keep things tidy for all.
the best cars I thought were the older ones, a few you can see big dollars spent
then the holdens with the family in toe (like me) that probably have a child named
Holden, everything is holden. Ive been in Perth long enough must be time to join a club
a get some work done on the car.
cheers andrew. PS nice VK too jkhsv, I need your air intake!

It was a glorius 29 deg day in Perth. We went to the crash site to pay our respects to the great man and then onto Chidlow Oval for the Show"n"Shine.

I'm not sure how many cars where there but heard a report of over 300.

Here are my photo's of the great day...
