After watching the two-minute trailer to 'Peter Brock: Over The Top', it just won't be diehard revheads queuing on the grid for a slice of the four-wheel action.

The new, feature-length documentary explores the maverick, icon and man that was the legendary Peter Brock, arguably Australia's greatest motorsporting champion of all time.

"I just get behind the wheel of that car, and I'm doing what I know I can do best," Brock says during the trailer, which will bring goosebumps to those who live for the smell of burnt petrol and tyre rubber.

Despite it being 30 years since the pinnacle of his career, the 9-time Bathurst 1000 champion is one of Australia's all-time great, sporting legends.

Much like 'The Last Dance' series recently did highlighting the career of Michael Jordan for a new legion of fans, 'Peter Brock: Over The Top' chronicles the extraordinary life Brock lived vivaciously in the public light.

However, using a treasure trove of rare, archival material coupled with candid interviews with the key characters in Peter's life (his family, partners, and closest colleagues), the film peels away the surface to reveal a profoundly human story behind the legend.

Some of the comments about Peter Brock in the trailer include:

• "He could do no wrong. He was the messiah of motorsport."
• "He was the biggest thing in Australia that perhaps there had ever been."
• "I don't think Peter knew how natural his talent was."
• "I don't think anybody could control Brock. I don't think Brock could control himself, frankly."


Made for the cinemas, 'Peter Brock: Over The Top' will be available to rent from 3 July.
