Brock Yates: 1933-2016
Brock was long a friend of the Racing Research Center, establishing a collection here in 2000 and serving on our Governing Council for nine years starting in September 2002.
Brock presented two Center Conversations programs: on Nov. 3, 2001, about automotive journalism and on June 10, 2006, when he introduced Greg Littleton, who spoke about the post-World War II roadster era.
The staff hears Brock’s voice every day – sometimes multiple times a day. He is the host of a 1972 film, “25 Years at Speed, the Watkins Glen Story,” which we play for visitors. An extremely popular piece, it can be seen on our You Tube channel.
