We told you previously that Classic Motorsports was a fantastic magazine. Well they did it again with the September 2018 issue that just hit the streets.
"DATSUN RISING" It takes you from Mr. K, Yukaka Katayama’s goal of starting a successful car company to the early race days of Datsun. There is John Morton the winning 240 Z race driver. Then came Peter Brock and BRE, Brock Racing Enterprise team in California. There are 12 pages including classic photos of great history.
Want to build your own BRE Racer? Brock Racing Enterprises has a 1/25 scale Revell model kit for sale. 702-558-3374 bre2.net
Want to buy a full size Datsun. The magazine has a 1977 280 Z, a 1980 210, and a 1974 Datsun B 210.
Sure it is HOT, but don’t let your Z just sit around…….DRIVE EM! …
Here are a few of the photos that I have taken over past years. Debbie and I worked as Grid Marshals for SCCA, the Sports Car Club of America. We were fortunate to work along with some of the greatest names in racing. Of course one of our favorites was Paul Newman. One of the photos is Paul with the ladies of the Grid. Debbie is on Paul’s left…..Talking! Paul wanted to be treated as a race car driver, nothing else. The following year after this photo was taken, a copy was presented to Paul at the race track. The unique twist was all the ladies autographed the back, and he appeared to pleasantly surprised. (cuz is was all about racing!)
The first 240 Z’s went straight to the race track, and changed the sports car world forever. To this day you will still find the early Z’s thru the latest Z’s on race tracks all over the world.
