“Bite off more than you can chew and then chew like hell.” Peter Brock.

In 1971, with the import market heating up in the US, the SCCA and its professional TransAm series relented to pressure from a number of teams who wanted to race imports. A separate series for smaller displacement engined vehicles resulted in what became known as the 2.5 TransAm series. BRE then took on the professionals, using Datsun’s ubiquitous little, tin-top, two-door sedan called the 510.

Against tough teams from BMW and Alfa-Romeo, BRE again decimated the series, winning two straight 2.5 Championships. It all ended too quickly however as the pressure from BRE was too tough for the competition. They quietly dropped out of the series leaving BRE no one to race with; end of game.

We love Japanese race cars. Are you going to miss this historic car?
