Re: BMW quits the GTCC

In the U.S. production models of the Coupe Quattro,
which only lasted from 1990-1991, only the 5cyl 20 valve
engine was available.

Too bad, it could have used the V6.

Audi has confirmed that it won't be contesting the 1993 GTCC.
They had been testing the Coupe quattro 2.5 litre V6.
Audi Sporting Chief, Dieter Basche said, "We are not trusting
completely that something like what happened to us with the
180 degree crankshaft last year could not happen again.  We
cannot commit big investment without that trust."
