i subscribe to the DJR e newsletter and after they announced their intention to build these cars i emailed and rang them to talk about it. according to the info i was given all warranty/service can be carried by a ford dealer and they will invoice DJR for any non factory repair or requirement.
this sounds great in principal but beware, as i have found out since.
my enquiry to purchase must have been close to a year ago and DJR never followed me up, hence i went and bought a GT, which brings me to my next point.
my local ford dealer is not FPV franchised and i sourced my car elsewhere. getting back to non factory warranty/service after taking my GT in for its 3000klm check up the local ford dealer did not even carry the correct motor oil to top it up.
i suppose the answer to your question remains one big question
