    Wow.. this should be interesting to follow. They successfully ran a few S40's in BTCC when it was still around. I used to love that series.. Wonder who's going to drive the Audi since Derek Bell is switching to Volvo?

    Robin,

    Derek Bell hasn't driven for Audi since 2002. He stepped down so Randy Pobst could partner with Mike Galati in the Audis.

    Regards,

    Jon

    2002..wasn't that a few weeks ago? :D

    Ok I need to work less. I just realized I missed the entire last season of racing. I think the only race of any series I caught was the one I actually attended in Miami. I could have sworn I saw Bell driving an S6 when Paul Mumford dominated Laguna Seca though, and I'm pretty sure that was last year... Guess it was just Pobst though. Thanks for the heads up!
