The Subaru SCCA deal was done primarily due to Suabrus involvemend in 
rallying in North America. Audi has no interest in rallying what so ever 
anymore, (I run an Audi S2 in the SCCA Pro Rally Series).
Rod Buymaster told me their interest is only in the ALMS and World Chalenge 
with the R8 and S4. They feel that BMW is their primary competition and do 
not feel any threat from Mitsu or Sube, so why rally since BMW does not.
