Brock Racing Enterprises was formed in late 1965 as a design firm and racing team. Founder Peter Brock had already had several significant achievements prior to forming his own racing team that alone would have firmly established him as an American racing legend.
Prior to forming BRE, Peter Brock had designed two of the most iconic American cars of the post war era - the original Corvette Stingray and Carroll Shelby's Cobra Daytona Coupe which went on to win the GTIII class of the 1965 World Sportscar Championship over the likes of Ferrari
In 1969 BRE became the West Coast factory backed racing team for Datsun achieving success in SCCA with both the Datsun 2000 roadster and 240Z.
For the 1971 season SCCA expanded the professional Trans Am series to include a class for 2.5 liter and under sedans. BRE prepared and campaigned three Datsun 510 sedans winning the Championship in 1971 and 1972 beating Alfa Romeo and BMW. The series was discontinued for 1973 and Peter Brock moved on to pursue other interests.
