_PEAK RATINGS_, AW, May 10th, '93

ESPN has signed a three-year rights package with the promoters
of the annual Pikes Peak hillclimb. Marty Reid Enterprises
will produce the broadcasts, which begin with taped coverage
of the 1993 event on July 25th.

SCCA PRO RALLY, WILD WEST OPENER, OLYMPIA WA, April 23-24, '93, _Sports Car_
--------------------------------------------------------------   June '93
.....Although Audi of America is not officially involved in
sponsorship of PRO RALLY, Libra Racing has built another new
car for the '93 season -- a new Audi S-2 Quattro Coupe for
defending series champion Paul Choiniere. Powered by Audi's
20-valve, 2.3 liter, twin-cam turbo engine, this new car is
a result of "Audi wanting to see the latest model out there"
according to co-driver Jeff Becker.....
.....The Choiniere Audi team got off to a bad start when the crew
lost control of the tow vehicle on an icy S. Dakota road and rolled
the trailer -- with the new car in it -- off into a ditch......
.....Then Paul Choiniere's wife was eight mos. pregnant.....
.....So, with the new Audi S-2 all ready to run, and Rod Millen
already placed in the field, car builder and 11-time US PRO RALLY
Champion John Buffum decided to put on his driving suit and add a 
different dimension to the event.....
.....At the end of SS5 Friday night Buffum held a 31sec lead over
.....Unfortunately, all this Millen-Buffum competition came to an end
early the second day as the Millen Hyundai suffered electrical
problems.....Buffum had a 5-minute lead on the field.....
.....The overall points will have to be sorted out at round two,
as pre-season favorites Choiniere and DiMarco were not present
and John Buffum does not plan to drive the reast of the season.....
