200q20v is already a very capable track car in its OEM form. I had around 2.5 hours or road course events on one track and still have a lot of room for skills improvement.

HP+ pads front (g60) and rear, 225-45-17 tires from STI (one of the best in dry traction) and IAIII+
engine management.

 So what IS a "track car"? I don't think
 we're talking about racing 
 here. Generally when this list discusses "the
 track" it's in 
 reference to non-timed, non-competitive lapping (road
 course) events, 
 not 1/4 mile timed runs, etc. I think that if you can get
 your "big 
 ass" '91 200q to be fun for a "tear up the
 highway" and on "twisty" 
 mountain roads, you'll probably find it will do fine as
 a "track car" 
 in most any of the Audi Club Driver's Ed type of event
 (i.e., road 
 courses).  Yes indeed, a  '91 200q, if modestly set up
 with decent 
 pads, good shocks and grippy tires (of course a chip
 wouldn't hurt 
 either) and if competently driven-- should be able to
 provide a 
 reasonable (and fun) test your driving skills at these
 types of track 
 events. Sure, you will get passed by many cars, but you
 ought to be 
 able to pass your share, too.
