From showroom to victory lane in a single season: the story of the BRE Datsun 510s

Published in

As pointed out in this Datsun-sponsored period documentary of the BRE Datsun 510 effort in SCCA Trans-Am’s 2.5-liter class in 1971, the team had a significant uphill challenge ahead of them, coming in against established competitors and coming in later in the season. While the documentary focuses largely on John Morton and the rest of the team, making it more of a personality profile than anything, it also features plenty of racing footage from throughout the season.
