Too bad that he wasn't driving an M3. While the 320i's were quite capable
cars, I wouldn't put them in the same category as the Prototype Tech. Group
M3 4 doors - which had a bunch of fun outrunning 911GT3's on a regular basis.
Winckelhock is also on record stating that the M3 is probably the most
capable sedan ever produced - at a press confrence at the Ring (release of
the US spec model), where it was raining.
The Audis did have a clear advantage over not only the 320's, but also the
lagunas, 406's, and accords. However, the 2wd contests left the lagunas on
top, and I believe that the top Laguna driver (his name escapes me right now
- not Plato) broke several of Bielas lap records the next season.
There's always something and someone faster.
