Peter Brock

SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER

VIP Dinner

Saturday, September 24, 2016

Peter Brock, a resident of Henderson, Nevada,is best known for his designs of the XP87 Corvette Sting Ray for GM Vice President Bill Mitchell and the World GT Championship winning Daytona Cobra Coupes for Carroll Shelby. Brock also penned the iconic livery used to create Shelby’s famed, twin-striped GT350 Mustangs in 1965. Brock’s lines for the Triumph TR250K for British-Leyland in the UK and the sleek aerodynamic GT racing coupes for Toyota and Hino in Japan are still considered some of his best work.

Brock’s trio of powerful V8-engined sports-racing prototypes in the Can Am era are still remembered for their innovative ideas on improving aerodynamics as well as safety. In the ‘60s and ‘70s Brock’s ever innovative BRE racing team won two Sports Car Club of America National Championships for Nissan against Triumph, Porsche and Toyota using Datsun’s 240Z and two SCCA 2.5 TransAm Championships against BMW and Alfa Romeo teams with his BRE Datsun 510 sedans.

Moving on to another realm of competition and design in the mid ‘70s, Brock founded Ultralight Products (UP). Brock’s team of innovative foot launched, flex-wing gliders set numerous cross-country distance and altitude records while winning several prestigious championships in the world of ultra-light flight in Europe, South America and the USA.

Brock has authored several books on racing history and automotive design as well as hundreds of articles in motorsports magazines worldwide. Today, Peter Brock is designing aerodynamically efficient, high quality, lightweight single-car trailers called Aerovaults. Peter and his wife and business partner, Gayle, build Aerovaults at their facility in Henderson, Nevada which manufactures these lightweight, aero-efficient trailers for racers and aficionados of Concours-quality vehicles as well as ‘rods, customs and motorcycles.

Mr. Brock plans to display the Aerovault trailer and examples of the Daytona Cobra Coupe at the Red Rock Concours d’Elegance.
