Napa Valley Roadsters
With the suns continued intensity, the rich, vineyard soil of Napa Valley,
California will dry after days of rain. The grapes have been harvested, and
vintners are aging their reserves in cellers, but here at Petrolicious, we
love vintage automobiles, the wonderful folks that drive them, and the
community that always builds around a make. Here in wine country, we caught
up with a strong community of Datsun Roadsters that help one another with
parts, maintenance, and enjoying a leisurely day in the sun.
BRE Datsun 2000
By Miguel Caparros
It was a good thing that I got drafted in 1971 as it spared me the
embarrassment of having my Alfa Romeo race team decimated in the Trans Am
by BRE. But this is the story of the first group of cars and characters
that Peter Brock embarrassed. In case you do not know who Peter Brock is,
Peter has a slightly impressive resume, a couple of his more noted
accomplishments, he designed the original Sting Ray, he also did a little
job for Carroll Shelby creating the Daytona Coupe that drove Ferrari out of
racing, and won the FIA World Championship for the first time by an
American manufacturer. I am including a link at the end of this article to
the BRE history page. for more details directly from the horses mouth, so
here is the short version. Datsun was not Peters first choice to go racing,
he was trying to get the contract to race the super smooth, 6 cylinder
signature car, the Toyota 2000 GT. Shelby got the Toyota contract and Peter
decided to beat his old boss out on the racetrack. DP or class D for
Production vehicles was the hot bed of competition in the Sport Car Club of
America. Peter being an engineer/racer took a very structured and clinical
way to prepare the cars. The Datsun 2000 sports roadster was based on the
1600 a car that was somewhere between the MG Midget and the MGB in size.
Basically Datsun, to be competitive shoved the largest engine they could
fit into the engine compartment. BRE did something with the 2000 that no
one thought was possible. Made it handle and got gobs of horsepower out of the
engine, more than enough to win the Championship first time out and send
Toyota home with its tail tucked between their legs.
