Here we have one of the best looking Datsun race cars in South Africa that has one of the most stunning colour schemes I have ever laid eyes on, a 1970’s B210 160Y GX Coupe. The car is owned by Seef Fourie, and was built by him as a replica of the original B210 race cars that were raced here in South Africa in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, of which there are photos in this post.
The front spoiler and flares have been created from moulds made off the originals back in the 70’s, and definitely make the little B210 stand out in the crowd…
As you can see, she looks stunning out on the track, sitting very low and wide, and going very, very quickly!
Just look at how flat she corners!!
Here the car is seen chasing the latest addition to the Datsun racing scene here in South Africa, the Pantazis families IMSA replica 260Z, down the main straight at Zwartkops Raceway.
Unfortunately, the day would be a difficult one for Mr Fourie, as after a few laps in Race 1 the car had to be parked on the side of the main straight with what I presume were engine troubles…
…and in Race 2 the car seemed to suffer a rather unpleasent altercation, which resulted in some damaged bodywork and punctured tire.
All in all, the car went very well for her first event after a lengthy hiatus, and I hope to see her again out on the track very soon!
