To mark 40 years since the Datsun 240Z won its first National Championships, Nissan is building a BRE 370Z to celebrate its 40th anniversary. Peter Brock’s Southern California-based Brock Racing Enterprises (BRE) racing team won the first of its two SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) National Championships at Road Atlanta that was driven by John Morton. It was the first time in racing history that a Japanese production racer had defeated the long-established champions from Germany and England in head-to-head competition.

The BRE 370Z will be unveiled at a special BRE Reunion dinner at the Classic Motorsports Mitty at Road Atlanta on Thursday, April 29 and will be displayed throughout the weekend along with a 40th Anniversary Edition 370Z and the original BRE team members.

“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.”

The new BRE 370Z is built for the track to current SCCA T2 racecar regulations and will see it reporting for track duty later this year.
