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.

Two Mk2 Jaguars In Need Of Restoration
This shows in detail the inside and outside of two Mk2 Jaguars which are in need of restoration and are in a secret location in Guernsey, Channel Islands.These two Mk2 Jaguars have been in the same place, on some wasteland, right by the sea for at least a year as I filmed most of this a year ago and needed to redo some stuff on the 8th April 2011 and they were still there. A couple things had been damaged on the Mk2 Jaguars since last year but they were in much the same condition despite being a few feet from corrosive sea water. Someone obviously paid to have these Jaguars imported into Guernsey, as one still has a UK number plate 526 XUB and had left them with some doors unlocked, just to rot away and at risk being vandalised.
