The newly released poster art for the 2018 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion features three of the most iconic Nissan and Datsun machines of years past.

The BRE Datsun 510, Nissan GTP ZX-Turbo and Nissan 300ZX all grace the official poster commemorating Nissan’s first turn as the featured marque at the reunion.

The Datsun 510, driven by John Morton, who was recently honored at ‘The Mitty’ historic event at Road Atlanta, dominated the SCCA Trans-Am championship in the early 1970s.

The Nissan GTP ZX-Turbo is most famous for its commanding championship victories at the hands of Geoff Brabham. Brabham dominated the era for Nissan taking the championship in 1988, 89, 90 and 91 – the first three titles with the GTP ZX-Turbo.

Steve Millen’s two-time championship-winning Nissan 300ZX is also featured on the Monterey Motorsports Reunion poster. The Nissan 300ZX scored victories in the world’s most iconic sports car races in 1994, taking the checkered flag overall at the Rolex 24 at Daytona, the 12 Hours of Sebring and in its class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Millen will return to the cockpit of his No. 75 Nissan 300ZX machine in front of the Nissan fans for the reunion at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca August 23-26.

The poster, designed by Bill Patterson, will be available to purchase during the Monterey Pre-Reunion Aug. 18 and 19, as well as during the reunion itself.
