James Brock, stepson of the late Peter Brock, has delivered a scathing review of Channel 10's two-part mini series Brock.
In a statement made public on his Facebook page, James Brock described the first part of the telemovie as "D-grade trash", saying "there was no need for embellishment or distorting of the facts". You can read the full statement below.
The first half of the show aired last night (Sunday, October 9), attracting 1.3 million viewers nationally, with the conclusion to be shown tonight (Monday, October 10).
It's been a controversial production, with Brock's second wife Michelle Downes last week claiming she would sue Channel 10 if certain aspects of their marriage were "glossed over".
Brock was also hampered by Channel 7 refusing to allow production company Endemol Shine the use of historic race footage, leading to a plea from producers to fans in an attempt to replace the missing footage.
James Brock is the son of Peter Brock's long-term partner Beverly Brock from a previous marriage. He followed his father's footsteps as a race driver, competing in V8 Supercars, V8 utes and most recently the Australian GT Championship.
