Jo is trying to do a privateer entry, If there is a series. The Factory
will have there own team over here run by Germans, Don't ask how I know,
I just know....
As for touring cars here in the US.... It ain't looking good for this
year or next. It's not a entry problem, plenty of folks have said yes,
and several cars ran in a proof of concept test at Road Atlanta this
fall. The problem is getting a series sponsor and a scantioning body.
