Brock: Over the Top is a feature length documentary that not only chronicles the extraordinary life of Australia's greatest racing car driver, Peter Brock, but peels away the surface to reveal the profoundly human story behind the legend. This film is a cinematic, thrilling yet intimately personal portrait of a life lived on the racing track and in the public eye. Using a treasure trove of rare archival material coupled with candid interviews with the key characters in Peter Brock's life including his family, his partners, and closest colleagues, this film tells the epic story of Brock's early obsession with cars, his hard won ascension to the top, his incredible record-breaking victories at Bathurst, his various professional and personal controversies, and his ultimate, tragic death on the race track.Written by
When a doc about a sporting icon, particularly a motor sporting icon can entertain punters previously not the least bit interest in such subject matter .... then you know it's a winner! Brock: Over the Top is just that doc.
Peter Brock is a legend of Australian Motor Racing, so the appeal will be with Australians first but there is a human interest story behind a man with a will to win but who had frailties so comon for enigma s like Brock.
Love the man, love the doco!
