Poor car counts (like 8 entries at most events I noticed) and part of a
serious organizational problem in US sportscar racing as a whole. Also here in
the US, TV contracts go a long ways at establishing a new series...witness IRL
(gag). Granted, I too am not sure rally will catch on here, but Audis are
certainly getting more popular which will eventualy make the ur-q desirable to
more people...seen what a good 2002 tii goes for these days? Many for more
than an ur-q and that is criminal IMO! (Disclaimer...not starting any wmb
threads, please...I have owned many 2002's and like them, but they are a far
cry from even a 4kq, let alone an ur-q.)
