A few years back, I heard that Jo Hoppen was quietly kicked-out of VW/Audi
due to some conflicts of interest he got himself involved with ... if that
was indeed the case -- rumors being what they are, you never know for sure
-- I'd be surprised if Audi chooses him to run their racing operation.  Of
course, time heals all wounds ... well, most of them anyway.  :^)
