FX (D610/800) worth an upgrade from DX D7100 ? Any suggestions ?

Hello... I'm hoping you can help me with a question I'm stuck and confused about.

I currently have a DX Nikon D7100 and have a 18-55 standard VR lens, but also have a 70-300 VR II FX lens.

I am unsure what to do next now.. I heard rumours of the D800 having an update (not sure when) but am thinking of a Full Frame camera as well or instead of .. what do you think ? If instead of then i would have an extra budget of £1000 to spend on lenses.  Is the D800 worth the extra money over the D610 ? These are my main concerns which are puzzling me now (it's getting confusing!).  I have and don't like the 18-105 lens that came with the camera and am stuck with using my 70-300 all the time.

Would appreciate any advice on this question?

My total budget is £2300 for camera and more lenses.

I would mainly be using the cameras for portrait and landscape, but my main photographic hobby is TT racing photos, and have struggled to get what I think (I'm a perfectionist!) are good pictures.
