Jo is trying to do a privateer entry, If there is a series.  The Factory 
will have there own team over here run by Germans, Don't ask how I know, 
I just know....

As for touring cars here in the US.... It ain't looking good for this 
year or next.  It's not a entry problem, plenty of folks have said yes, 
and several cars ran in a proof of concept test at Road Atlanta this 
fall.  The problem is getting a series sponsor and a scantioning body.
