May 10, 2019 | UTCC, FastFriday


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 sleeper Mustang with more than 400 horsepower.

A factory-built Mustang FP350S.

A CTS-V packing nearly 600 horsepower.

A prototype from Exomotive (makers of the Exocet) said to be built from a Corvette donor.

And a great-looking V6 Mustang that's been built to "prove these stereotypes wrong!"

To see the full field, totaling 60 cars, check out the photo gallery of accepted entries.


About the Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge:

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.


How to Enter Your Car:

Entry for the 2019 Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge is now closed.

Exomotive working with Corvette donors? Interesting... Seems the time for the VetteKart has finally come to be commercialized.

I'd like to get tickets for Friday UTCC only, not for all 3 days.  It doesn't look like that's an option.

It’s not, sorry. But trust me: HyperFest is worth staying for.

A sleeper Mustang with more than 400 horsepower. Don't they come stock with more than 400 horsepower?

In reply to DaveEstey :

HAHA I was thinking the same thing, maybe that's part of the sleeper story, 800 is more than 400!
