Factory Five Community Says Farewell to Todd Buttrick

Terrible news! I just learned that we have lost a GREAT member of the Factory Five family. Todd Buttrick was one of the best guys, and a friend of so many people in the Factory Five world. I remember when his wife Jillian passed away maybe 15 years ago. We named the Challenge Series East Coast Cup in her honor. So hard to know that Todd lost his fight to cancer.

Todd and his period-correct Mk2 Roadster was a friend of everyone in the Factory Five world.

Just having returned from the London Cobra Show, and seeing so many old friends that go way back, it is tough to realize how fleeting all of this is. Todd will be missed.

Thoughts and prayers to his children. I’ve posted some of the photos that I had here of Todd.

Todd’s car was flawless, but also driven on the street and raced at autocross and road race events.
