Nothern California Corvette Association
Legends on Display

Sunday, April 27, 2014 | Noon-2:00pm

Everybody knows Peter Brock for a different reason. To historic Corvette fans he's the guy who penned the lines of the original Sting Ray racer and by extension the production 1963 Corvette.

To Cobra fans, meanwhile, Peter’s the guy who took the brick-like Shelby Cobra roadster and turned it into the slippery Cobra Daytona Coupe – the first American car to beat out the European regulars and grab the FIA’s GT World Championship, motorsports' ultimate prize in worldwide sports-car racing. Today Pete credits that shape to the 1930s research of Wunibald Kamm's group, plus some very careful reading of the FIA and ACO rulebooks in search of every loophole. However the credit is shared, America got its first World Championship-winning sports car, and Peter got a firsthand education in negotiating the world of provincial race officials. That education was about to serve him well.

Datsun devotees love to remember the Peter Brock of Brock Racing Enterprises during the late 60s and early 70s; that fun-loving hipster who, behind his crowd-pleasing polka-dot scarves and hip-hugging slacks, coolly called the shots as BRE took the SCCA C Production National Championship the first two years of the Datsun 240Z's existence and BRE's 510 coupes decimated the Alfas and Porsches of the Trans-Am 2.5 series.

This lecture is Free with admission to the Museum and Museum Member's are Free.
