That's inevitable. They could also reduce the weight penalty on the AWDs-
looks like they've gone too far this time.

Commentator said the very same thing- it's in the German STW Cup. Strange,
because the AWD advantage on dry asphalt has proved to be much smaller. A
FWD Audi should at least be able to keep up with the pack on dry
surfaces... unless their engines are down on power, too.
Mmmm... I'll check out the STW Cup 'web site our friend Hans-Juergen S. has
so kindly pointed out to us.

Hoping for a VERY WET touring car season...
