Traditionally we have scheduled our Open House to coincide with the Datsun Classic occurring in Williams, AZ the first weekend of October. However, holding our Open House on a weekday meant many people who weren't taking the week off for the Classic couldn't attend. Also, what we could do for the Open House was limited as Classic attendees had to leave early afternoon to reach Williams for their welcome reception.
This year we've decided to take a beautiful Saturday in October and fill it with great activities that will include our traditional Open House at the BRE shop. We then throw in a Garage 51 Customs Die-Cast Show, also onsite. Then in the afternoon we pack up and head to the Red Rock Canyon for a beautiful tour drive and group photo.

Time: 10:00am - 3:00pm
Onsite at BRE: Car Show, Shop Tour, BBQ: BRE will be open from 10am - 3pm where the cars you bring will be on display and entered into our special Choice Awards. We'll give shop tours, have our traditional BBQ and you get to share stories with Brock and other BRE guests. We'll have a showroom packed with special products and the Die-Cast Show will have custom models as well. Your registration will include lunch (lunch will also be available for purchase onsite to those that did not register (e.g. non-BRE fans that may drive by and stop to see your cool cars).
At 10:30am there will be a panel with BRE Team Owner/Manager Peter Brock, Championship Driver John Morton, Chassi Wizard Trevor Harris, Fabricator Joey Cavaglieri and Parts Guru Kirk Allegro.
Per tradition, Brock and BRE team members will give out Choice Awards for their favorite cars at the Open House. If you would like the opportunity to be considered for one of the awards, you must have your car parked in place at BRE by noon.
Red Rock Canyon Cruise
Time: 3:00pm - End
Following the onsite activities, join us for a tour along the famous Red Rock Canyon Scenic Drive. Bring your Datsun, Nissan, Corvette, Cobra, Hot Rod... whatever you have... and drive it with BRE and the Brocks through Red Rock Canyon and join in for the group photo near the end of the drive.
A few lucky registrants will even win ride-alongs with Peter Brock, John Morton, Trevor Harris or Joey Cavaglieri through Red Rock Canyon! Anyone who registers for the Red Rock Cruise will be put in the raffle to win the ride of a lifetime. Once we've completed our scenic cruise, we'll gather near the exit for a group photo.
We have already registered the tour with the Red Rock park so there will be no issues with a large number of cars driving through or stopping and taking a group photo, etc. The park however requires an entrance fee of $12/person (per person, not per car) which we will collect from you as we will pay the park in advance to minimize delays entering the park. Prior to leaving for Red Rock, we will go over some of the important aspects of the cruise since we'll be going through a National Park. Once you've registered for the cruise (still not open yet), an entry pass to the park will be given to you during the Open House.
