BRE Celebrates 50 Years

Like classic rock stars setting sail for one more world tour, Peter Brock, John Knepp, John Morton and the original team from Brock Racing Enterprises, who dominated SCCA Championships between 1968 and 1972, were enthusiastically welcomed onto the stage at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California for a special 50th Anniversary Q&A.

Recently, Brock's wife Gail, moderated the event, and each of the men that contributed to the success of BRE reminisced about the early days of working at BRE, and the constant jouncing between the competition, who had no experience racing against the likes of BRE's incredible Datsun 510s, 240s and roadsters. With BRE's willingness to race the underdog imports, it squarely put Datsun on the map in America.
