They raced the 5ktq in the '88 TransAm series then switched to a tube-frame
90q for the IMSA GTO series in '89 ... never did get to see one of those up

Along these lines, I seem to recall seeing a classified ad in Autoweek many
years ago for an '87 5ktq complete with rollcage that had raced in the IMSA
Firehawk endurance series and was painted in Audi's then-factory colors. I
believe the area code listed was for upstate New York ... could this be the
car your friend has seen? If only I had $12.5k at the time <sigh>...
