  2. Track Insurance Question

    Factory Five GTM Forum
    Last year the car made it to a track day. Never gave much thought to the insurance policy beings I was not “racing” but rather driving on the track in a HPDE class. My renewal policy arrives from American Modern (through Heacock) last week. It is about $900 for the year. I find a clause...

    I want to take a GTM and put a BMW M5 v10 engine in it. I'm not sure if it'll work with it or if I'll have to do a lot of work to make it work with the car.

    Road Racing Discussions
    2012 treated me well and I decided in 2013 I would like to start racing. I would like to do SPEC racing but my ego cannot fit in a Miata. But, my wallet can't swing $150k++ either. I want a sexy looking car that I can feel good about, that wont break the bank to build, race and maintain. Now...
