I couldn't agree more.

That was pretty fantastic indeed.  No diesel soot was visible on that car 
either.  Looks like Audi engineering really put the effort into this one. 
I think everyone can agree.

In addition, an race series like this sure is fantastic, where something 
like an alternative fuel or engine (well, sort-of, they disallowed the 
rotary recently. That was pretty lame) can compete.  A vendor like Audi 
can test their products and improve the product that will hit the 
consumers like you and me.    Much different than something on nascar 
which unfortunatly dominates speed channel these days.

'welcome to nascar, keep using that carburetor and btw, here are your 

Way to go all teams that participated in ALMS, and of course hats off to 
Audi for a fine effort once again.   Wish i could have been there this 
year as i've been in previous events.
