Southern California-based Brock Racing Enterprises made motorsport history in 1970 when it won the first of its Sports Car Club of America National Championships behind the wheel of a Datsun 510, the predecessor to the modern-day 370Z sports car. It has been 40 years since the BRE team achieved victory, and now founder Peter Brock will have the opportunity to show off his current rendition of the vintage red, white, and blue BRE livery on the track-oriented Nismo 370Z Coupe. The BRE 370Z is still a work in progress but Brock is confident his work will shine.
“Because the 370Z has strong, sculpted shapes, I was able to make the livery even bolder and more aggressive,” said Brock. “It was good to be in the paint booth working out the details of the design. I look forward to seeing it in a race track setting at The Mitty.”
As the BRE edition is based off the Nismo 370Z, it will come with all the special components that separate this high-performance iteration from the rest of the 370Z lineup: Nismo suspension, strut tower bar, body dampers, and Rays 19-inch forged aluminum-alloy wheels. The BRE 370Z will be built to current SCCA T2 regulations and hit the track later this year.
The special Z will be revealed at a special BRE Reunion dinner at the Classic Motorsports Mitty scheduled for April 29. This venue will be held at the famed Road Atlanta road course and feature a collection of former BRE racecars alongside a 40th Anniversary Edition 370Z.
“To be able to gather with many of my old BRE crew members at Road Atlanta this year is a truly special occasion,” said Brock. ”There will be so many race fans of that era who will join us to celebrate, as well as modern vintage teams which will be bringing their own tribute BRE racers to compete on this fabulous circuit.”
