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.

1969 Datsun 2000 Roadster Red NSmyr120812
This is an outstanding example of what Datsun (Nissan) was doing right in the American car market! It certainly had the features of the British sports cars, with the addition of great styling and great reliability! Soon the 240Z would be zooming around..a great competitor for the sports car market! The engine was four cylinders, overhead cam, 5 main bearings and solid lifters, and a five speed manual transmission.

This Datsun Traveled 37,000 miles on a North American Road Trip
You can read our full interview with Scott at http://petrolicious.com/datsun-roadster-road-trip. We also encourage you to check out Scott's own site, http://RoadsterRoadtrip.com, which features a treasure trove of photographs and personal memories from his trip. The average American driver puts 13,500 miles per year on their car. Mr. Scott Fisher of Las Vegas, Nevada, added that many to the odometer of his 1967 Datsun Roadster in just the first three months of a recently-completed road trip that ultimately took him to forty-eight U.S. states and seven Canadian provinces. By the time Scott pulled into his garage in Las Vegas for the first time in eight months, he had covered 37,850 miles of the North American countryside. Deciding that an extended road trip was the best way to unwind after sixteen years of business stress, Scott briefly considered a modern ride but opted instead to entrust his travels to a 46 year-old Datsun that he would come to call "The Optimist." "What you're driving on your road trip will be a huge part of the experience," noted Scott in a January 2014 interview with Petrolicious, "so I decided that a less all-around and less capable vehicle that had considerably more character and exuberance would be a much better choice." Aside from a few mechanical hiccups, the Roadster gobbled up the miles like a champ, carrying Scott along rough logging roads, over mountain passes, and through Times Square -- all with the top down, of course. The car, says Scott, "feels more like a faithful dog that may raise an eyebrow to some of your more harebrained plans, but will totally give 100% to make it happen. I try not to anthropomorphize too much, but the car is an optimist, and it's the perfect companion for a trip like this." Even a run-in with a deer in Utah -- from which, Scott points out, the Datsun emerged bruised but victorious -- couldn't slow the Roadster as it barreled through the final miles of Scott's adventure. Now at home in Scott's garage, the little Optimist has certainly earned its upcoming restoration. Drive Tastefully® http://Petrolicious.com http://facebook.com/Petrolicious
