Phil Brock will present the Peter Brock Trophy to the winners of the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 next month.

This year’s Supercars showpiece will celebrate the life of the late nine-time Bathurst winner Peter Brock as the sport marks 10 years since the touring car legend’s death.

Phil Brock, who raced alongside his brother at Mount Panorama on several occasions, presented the first Peter Brock Trophy to winners Craig Lowndes and Jamie Whincup in 2006.

“Ten years have passed since I presented the very first Peter Brock Trophy and I miss Pete, as do his fans – this is for all of them as well. I’ll have a tear in my eye as I hand over that trophy, you can bet on that,” said Brock.

“I wouldn’t mind betting that Pete will be looking down on me as I make the presentation to the winning drivers, urging me, as he did with everyone he met, to cherish the moment.”

Supercheap Auto Managing Director Chris Wilesmith added, “When Supercars approached us about allowing Phil Brock to present the Peter Brock Trophy it was obvious to us that this would be a special conclusion to what promises to be a memorable event.”

A series of special events are planned at Mount Panorama to celebrate Brock including a parade of cars from his career, which will be driven by Phil Brock and all the previous winners of the Peter Brock Trophy.
