A bit late as I wade through a weekend's worth of digests...

Congratulations to Audi and Bentley for swimming their way to the
podium! Despite looking easy, this was not an easy win at all. Audi will
be challaenged in ALMS soon if the likes of Oreca and Dome come join the
ALMS. Especially the Dallara-Chrysler...that car could well be the one
to rise and challenge the R8 dominance we have enjoyed the past year.

Ti, AFAIK, the Bentley is indeed a development of the R8C with a whole
bunch of Toyota GT-One influence (also a Tony Southgate designed car).
The engines are Audi, and I would imagine the entire rear end is
actually since the Bentley also uses paddle shifters like the R8. I also
noticed that all the Audi team jackets also had Bentley logos on them.

I noticed on Speedvision's e-mail ticker along the bottom of the screen
a message from our q-lister friend Jouko Haapanen towards the end of the

I can't wait for Sears Point!
