Re:Audi Trans Am

As Eric the walking T/A  library stated,

>Okay here's the scoop as best I remember it:

This is indeed matches the records I have. I did mention
that I thought Scott Goodyear drove one car, but after checking
into it, he co-drove one of the IMSA GTO cars with Hurley
Haywood at Mosport and Road America. Goodyear wasn't
involved in the T/A effort. Also Audi only entered 1 or 2 GTO cars
in any one event.

The weight increased by more than 12 pounds, right?
