    Ultimate Track Car Challenge

    The annual UTCc event looks to have some interesting entrants. Disappointed that FFR didn't enter the 818 again this year. Anyone else feel that they've given up on this model? They don't publicize anything new coming down the line for it or any tweaks they've made along the way. Even the 818 forum is growing more and more quiet.

    Maybe they're all busy fixing the issues on the 818.

    Perhaps they are going to have the design of the GTF and the 818 share some similar design elements. They could then utilize the results of wind tunnel testing for both cars. Costs of establishing a Factory Five Brand Look could be minimized. Some parts might also be shared.

    They are using the Daytona Coupe as the base for the GTF.
