#FastFriday: This Week’s UTCC Entries

This week, we’re announcing our latest round of accepted entries to the Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge. Our annual no-holds-barred track competition simply seeks the fastest machines on four wheels—and fast machines we’ve got.

This week’s picks include: A 2003 BMW M3 powered by the 500 horsepower S85 V10 from a BMW M5, a fully-prepped (and last year’s UTCC Vintage Class winner) 1970 Pontiac Firebird with original sheet metal and an LS-swapped 1998 BMW M3 good for over 480 horsepower. These highlights are just a few of the 37 entries that have been accepted into the Ultimate Track Car Challenge so far. We’ll announce another round of acceptances next week.

The UTCC rules are brief: Car and driver must just pass a NASA safety inspection. Period.

Who’s welcome? Everyone, pretty much. New, old, factory-bought and home-built. Wings are cool. So are box flares, giant intercoolers and sequential shifters.

This is also a great chance for shops to show off their work–or settle a grudge with another outfit.

Bolt on a turbo, add some canards, dial in the suspension, and do whatever you need to do. Just don’t lose focus on what’s important: flat out speed.

The UTCC takes place May 17th-18th during Hyperfest, an annual weekend-long event that celebrates all things automotive, at VIRginia International Raceway.

It is not too late to enter your car in the Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge. Applying is free, and we are announcing entries every week.
