Re: : 5 valve Audi 5 cyl engines

Helsinki Motor Show last weekend - on display - Audi 200 quattro IMSA
special as raced in various classes by Pertti Kuismanen as a hobby last two
years, an unbeatable powerhouse with 900 horsepower out of an I5, if you
can afford the Audi engineers required to keep it running.  Saw it run this
summer - sights and sounds for all ages!!!  This car has, if I remeber
correctly, spent time in in South Africa (and USA?) with Audi Sport, now
having been sold to ex-hockey player, businessman Kuismanen for a track
toy.  He moved up from superkarts to this, at age approx. 50 !!!

He raced ion Germany most of the summer, looking for stiffer competition,
without much luck.  Olld 935's etc. can't quite cut it agains this
