Australian motor racing legend Peter Brock has been killed in an accident while taking part in the Targa West rally in Western Australia, motor sport officials have confirmed.

Brock, 61, from Melbourne, became Australia's best known motor sport personality and a dominant figure in the sport.

West Australian police say a car competing in the Targa West rally crashed into a tree at Gidgegannup about 30 kilometres north-east of Perth about 12pm.

The car was carrying two people and one had died in the crash, he said.

The major crash investigation unit was at the scene, he said. Ambulances were not called.

Motor sport officials have confirmed the driver was Brock.

Brock, who was married with three children, was driving with Mick Hone in a Daytona Coupe.

The circumstances of the accident remain unclear.

My gosh...first Steve and now Brockie! :shock:

I sat and cried tonight when I saw the news, both on Peter Brock and the fact that little Bob is asking where is daddy? I really feel for Terri having to bring up the 2 kids so young.

Thoughts and prayers go out to both families tonight!
