Pristine Datsun Race cars are on display, and there are interviews with Pete Brock and John Morton during the first 30 minutes
of the event coverage.

This is the video that told the story of the Trans Am Championship:

Getting down to the very last race and the very last lap, the Alfa Romeo hit John Morton
in the corkscrew turn and knocked Morton out of first place..

The Alfa Team stole the trophy that day and ran off. John Morton went home empty handed.

and the next day?
--------------------------

Officials found that the Alfa had a 3 gallon oversize gas tank and that's why the cheating Alfa never made their nine second pit stop.
------------------------

It was decades later that the fully restored Datsun 510 was brought over from Japan.

There was a demonstration race between the two cars.
---------------------

It was fitting that on that day, John Morton took a fully restored Datsun 510 race car

and in the same turn where the Alfa driver, Horst Kwech had knocked Morton out of first place....

John Morton stuffed that Alfa in the butt end and knocked it off the road.
------------------

Well done, John Morton!
