I had the pleasure of meeting Jeff Zwart when I bought my 90q20v from him.
His domination of Pikes Peak is certainly no secret, Bridgestone(I think)
used his car in their two page ads not too long ago.

Honestly though, I don't know how impressed he was with the quattro system.
His replacement car is a 850 turbo wagon, which he is having tuned by IPD.
