Racing with Baggage

Great quote from Audi Sport's Wolfgang Ullrich, on the weight
penalties applied to the A4 Super Touring cars: "First they
made our drivers race with their wives in the car, now they
want them to take the dog and the kids too."

The current weight disparity is as follows:
  with respect to FWD cars:  209 lb
  with respect to RWD cars:  154 lb

To his credit, Ullrich also states "But there is no question of
us pulling out. We remain committed to winning the series."
