The relationship between Holden and the late Peter Brock goes back nearly forty years, and a good part of that time saw the Aussie racing legend compete behind the wheel of a Commodore sedan. During his illustrious career, Brock's leadership of the Holden Dealer Team (HDT) racing outfit also saw several modified high-performance roadgoing Commodores hit the market before the group was disbanded in the late '80s.

An incident during the Targa West rally has claimed the life of Australia's most prolific motorsports icon. While driving his Daytona Coupe, Peter Brock collided with a tree at speed, wounding his co-driver and sustaining mortal injuries. Currently, no information is available about the cause of the crash, although Mick Hone, Brock's co-driver is in stable condition.
