Speaker Series: Peter Brock “BRE’s Japanese Auto Race History”
April 7 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Peter Brock founded Brock Racing Enterprise (BRE) in 1965 and in the ‘60s and ‘70s the ever innovative BRE racing team won four SCCA National Championships for Datsun (Nissan) against teams from BMW, Porsche, Triumph and Alfa Romeo using Datsun’s 240Z and 510 sedans.
Starting in the automotive industry at a young age, by twenty-five Peter Brock had presented a radical design for an aerodynamic Cobra Daytona Coupe. He based the design upon a technical paper from the 1930’s—on low drag automotive aerodynamics—he had found in the GM library in 1957. Also while at GM, he penned the lines of the original Sting Ray racer and by extension the production 1963 Corvette.
