None of the reports have mentioned any attempt or wish to sell the item so it might be a momento and not for profit which makes it no different to rebuilding the car in question and charging money for people to see it.

Most trackside marshals have ended up with items off cars over the years, I know I've ended up with some nice spanners and other tools that were left in engine bays.

At the F1 GP I used to grab the bits of carbon fibre and chuck it over the fence to the kids in the crowd so they had something to take to show & tell the following week.

The biggest issue in this is theft from a crime scene which is what the crash scene was.

To actually be there to take the body into your care and do something like this disgusts me - I hope the perpetrator feels the full weight of the law...

A 37-year-old woman has been charged with stealing a souvenir from Peter Brock's crashed car while collecting the racing legend's body for the coroner in the Perth hills.

Brock, 61, died when his high-powered Daytona Coupe left the road and slammed side-on into a tree during the Targa West road rally near Perth on September 8 last year.

Police allege they have found a piece of fibreglass from the wreck, emblazoned with Brock's racing number 05, at the woman's home in Carlisle.

They have charged her with stealing a piece of the car while employed to take Brock's body to the mortuary on behalf of the coroner.




She has been summonsed to appear in the Midland Magistrate's Court on April 4.

Brock's record nine wins in Australian motor sport's best-known event, the Bathurst 1000, won him the moniker King Of The Mountain and status far beyond that of any of his contemporaries.




bring back the death penalty!.the lengths that some people go to.

RIP LJ - loved and never forgotten.

"It was dry for the second go-around. Grice, nervous, worrying about his Bathurst jinx, ran 2:25.9. The amazing Brock, using every last centimetre of bitumen, yet keeping the car straight and balanced and at full noise, came back with a staggering 2:20.0 as if to say: "Match that". And people just shook their heads, bit their lips and wondered who would be second".

The Peter Brock trophy is now where it belongs.

It is considered a crime scene not because a crime might've been considered but because we preserve the scene as much as possible as you would a crime scene. At the time of the incident it would be considered a crime scene until the Police finish their investigation and determine the cause of the collision and that no crime has been committed.

I in no way point the finger at anyone in this unfortunate incident as from the evidence that's been made public so far it looks to be a case of driver error. I've been a Brock fan for years and was deeply saddened by the crash and was one of the people who suggested to Davo that Sandown should hold a tribute and assisted on the day to make it all work as well as it did.

I'm offended by the tone of your post and what you are suggesting. I suggest in future you think before hitting the submit button. After all a simple "Why call it a crime scene" question would've been better than what you ended up posting in such a personal attack on me.

I can understand why it is considered a crime scene, as would any crash until the investigation is complete, there would be a number of things they may have initially considered when the crash occurred, some may have been considered a crime, i.e. someone tampered with the breaks... but in Brocky's case it was just driver error, which had a bad outcome

Certainly a loss of job would be the minimum to expect.... a total lack of professionalism.. don't think i'd go so far as to say jail time would be warranted tho...

look i don't know how big this piece was that she took... but how would it have been if it turned out that whatever it was had some small part to play into why Brocky lost control and as a result the accident squad would never be able to figure out what it was because it was removed before it could be cataloged what it was and where it was in relation to everything else...

a full and open apology to the Brock family wouldn't go astray either...

He's a juvenile and doesn't actually understand the implication of what he wrote.

Ok i know exacley what i am saying and doing and i take responsibilty for that, i belive i did not "OVERREACT" as i belive eberybody is making a big fuss about something so small, ok so it was Brockies crash but tell me would there be soo much fuss over someone elses crash you didnt know i dont think soo, alot of people see Brocky as a "LEGEND" status, but personally i dont so he was consistant at one race and some people have achieved a bit more than him i.e. Skaife has won the championship 5 times and Brocky only 3. I also think it is a bit silly that a 61 year old is still racing. I as a young bloke do not look up to Brocky as people here did because when i was born there was Skaife,Lowndes etc. So i dont right about Brocky as a fan would!
