Factory Five 818 Wins 2013 Editors' Choice Award and Scores Cover of GRM!

The new Factory Five 818 continues to earn serious recognition and this month it blazes across the cover of Grassroots Motorsports Magazine.  So far this year, the new 818 has been tested with rave reviews in Road & Track Magazine, Automobile Magazine, Yahoo! Autos, and was also featured on the cover of Kit Car Magazine.

818-on-GRM-CoverNot only did the 818 make the cover, Factory Five won an Editors’ Choice Award, and the crew from Grassroots Motorsports begins a step-by-step build coverage in this issue.  The 2013 Editors’ Choice Award is the fourth major award we’ve earned from GRM!

The crew at GRM have built their own 818 and you can follow along with their build on the website and in the pages of each magazine starting with this December issue.

We have the highest respect for Tim Suddard and his team at Grassroots Motorsports Magazine.  They are the #1 amateur racing source in the magazine world and their website has a tremendous wealth of race car information and a terrific discussion forum.
