Pete is a retired jet engine technician, having worked 20 years in the RAAF specialising particularly on Atar engines used in the Mirage fighter, which powered Aussie Invader II and III.
Pete has been with Rosco since 1982, helping Rosco construct Aussie Invader II, which broke the Australian Land Speed record in 1994 at over 800 km/h (500 mph) and and went on to achieve greater speeds but never completed a two-way pass needed to set the record.
Pete was Crew Manager and oversaw construction of Aussie Invader III that exceeded Richard Noble’s World Land Speed record in 1996 of 633 mph, but never officially broke the record as it could not back up its 643 mph (1,035 km/h) one-way pass.
In his “Spare” time he traces his family tree, looking for other skeletons in the cupboard, as he cannot find any convict ancestors.
