<br> Merry Xmas to all!<br>Just finished watching the 98 TOCA BTCC video. Great action, Mandatory pit stops in the main race, much more competiton than past years. R. Ridell in the Volvo S40 champ, Even though the A4`s were relegated to FWD they had a somewhat respectable showing (No wins but a couple of 3rd`s with Y. Muller) <br> Noticed a couple of things, Doctor`s\Medical car a nice Sliver S8, and noticed the Euro A4 tail lamps, Externally they resemble the 98.5-99 tail lamps but the signals flash amber like the 98 Passat`s<br> The Audi`s ran with the Audi Quttaro windshield banners but with the Quttaro crossed out<p>P. Gruber<br>97 2.8 QM

<br> Ordered it directly from Duke Marketing $37.95<br> (800) 458-5887<br> Just heard about the Quttaro`s being renstated<br>in the German STW championship. Will Audi have to change their "Banned" advertising now?

Where did you hear that? From what others have posted here, Audi was pulling out of Touring Car Racing, and only going to do the Le Mans R8 project! Maybe with BMW, Porche, AND Audi pulling out of most racing efforts, the STW is freaking out and thus LETTING the A4 Quattro come back in the hopes of luring Audi back into their fold???? Either way, it sure would be good news IF true.

Does this make your day or what?<p>Fresh from the Autosport site.<br> <br> <br>Quattros given a break<p>As many as four Audi A4 Quattros could contest next season's German Super Touring Championship after rules were relaxed to allow the four-wheel-drive cars back into the series. Abt Sportsline, which ran the factory Audi in 1998, is tipped to run two, and Ex-Audi works team SMS is also considering a two-car squad. <p>The organiser of the beleagured series has drawn up a secret list of potential starters, which it is said could number as many as 17. <p>It is still uncertain, however, to what extent BMW will be participating if at all. Although there will be no factory squad, ex-works-backed teams Schnitzer and Isert could field cars. Stalwarts Johnny Cecotto and Joachim Winkelhock are both possible drivers. <p>Despite the increased field, the series is still very much in trouble. Even Honda and Opel, who kept faith with the series while other makes pulled out, are believed to have not yet committed 100%. <p>One insider said, 'Our only advantage is that the series doesn't start until May 9, so our teams still have time to get their acts together.' <p>24/12/98<p>++++++++++++++++++++++++<p>Steve S.<br>97 2.8QM
