Mitsubishi Motors Australia Ltd has paid tribute to Peter Brock, the legendary racing driver and automotive identity who died in a crash at the Targa West rally.
Mitsubishi Motors Australia Ltd’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr Robert McEniry, worked with Brock earlier in his career at Holden and described him as “a great colleague and friend”.
“Peter Brock was an iconic figure in Australian motor sport and the country’s automotive industry, and it has been an enormous pleasure and privilege to have known and worked with him,” Mr McEniry said.
“He was an absolute professional and a great ambassador both for the sport and the motor industry.
“While he has been synonymous with the Holden brand, Peter was greatly admired and respected by people in all the car and component manufacturing companies.
“Peter always had unbounding enthusiasm and was tireless in his work for causes that he took up and supported.
“In particular, he championed the .05 anti-drink-driving campaign from its earliest days. He also committed himself to lots of other charity work over the years. He was a truly outstanding human being.
“Peter Brock leaves a wonderful legacy and undoubtedly will continue to inspire millions of Australians as he has done for almost 40 years.
“Mitsubishi Motors Australia Ltd extends its deepest sympathies to Peter’s family and friends, in particular Bev and their children, and to those of our counterparts at Holden who knew and worked with Peter.”
