I own a BMW and think they are wonderful cars. However I was at Lime Rock last Friday to watch the cars practice and qualify for the weekends races and the car to beat was an AUDI S4.

It was the Speedvision GT class and the competition included E36 M3's, Porsche 911's (both old and new) Corvettes, Dodge Vipers, Lotus Elise (V8 turbo). The Audi took first, followed by a Viper, and finally an E36 M3.

The announcer actually mentioned that the Audi was down on power compared to alot of the other cars and could make up for the deficit with handling (AWD). At one point the S4 got its two drivers side wheel onto the dirt. He never even lifted off the throttle.

As I said I own and love BMW's but the Audi is also a VERY nice car.

P.S. The Audi with AWD is not allowed to race in the European Touring car series or SCCA racing due to the unfair advantage of AWD.
