Video: Against All Odds Datsun 510 BRE Racing

Submitted by on November 9, 2012

“I try to go as fast as I can and be smooth, and if I have to get a little unsmooth occasionally I’m perfectly willing to do that.”

In the late ’60s and early ’70s, the Trans American Challenge Series was in its plucky, grassroots glory days, with top drivers duking it out fender to fender and completely sideways in production sedans.

This video follows John Morton, the Datsun team and their Datsun 510 as they do battle with defending champions Alfa Romeo in attempt to usurp the title. It’s classic racing at its best, and a brilliant watch!
