One of the best parts of Tire Rack Ultimate Track Car Challenge? The fact that it often attracts both amateur and professional racers alike.

Case in point: FCP Euro is bringing its Mercedes-Benz AMG GT4 that currently competes in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge. So, if you have ever wanted a chance to compete against a GT-spec, professional race car, this is your chance.

Here’s a closer look at this week’s selections:

Powered by a twin-turbo V8 rated for 510 horsepower, FCP Euro’s AMG GT4 offers a rare opportunity to see how a purpose-built professional endurance race car competes in an all-out Time Attack event.

Jens Polte’s E92-chassis BMW M3 may retain its stock S65 engine–detuned to meet class restrictions, nonetheless­–but don’t let that overshadow the numerous other modifications done that make the M3 competitive in NASA Super Touring 3 and Time Trial 3 classes.

Fast and agile” is how Arul Ganesh Angamuthu describes his 2018 Audi RS3, and, according to the numbers, we’d agree: 502 horsepower on tap plus upgraded suspension and sticky Falken tires on all four corners.

View these cars, along with the rest of the field, on the UTCC website. If you think you have what it takes to win, enter your car here.
