er, i think BTCC refers to "british touring cars" while GTCC refers to
"german touring cars".  similar, but the rules are different. i'm
sure someone can elaborate better.

just like in trans am and imsa GTO, the audi v8's kicked butt and took
no prisoners.  :) hans stuck won the championship in 1990 and frank
beila (sp?) won it in 1991.  after that they pulled out.  i seem to
recall that the reason for that was that audi wanted to use a flat plane
crankshaft (more bhp, but rougher) but that was outlawed.

i'm glad the v8 made its mark.  2 years it competed and 2 years it won
the championship.  i may have seen reports of the a4q doing very well
in BTCC as well, perhaps even winning the championship.. anyone knows
for sure?
