no, can't go.

i take one look at those cars and i want a street legal one

what would be wrong with a single seat "commuter"
say 200 hp, single seat, super light. i bet it would get 50 gpwith the right gear.

nope. talking about the ALMS and champ car races to be held at the reliant center may 11-13

also, audi will be running their new R10 prototype class cars friday night(ALMS race). deisel race cars for the win. they will absolutely dominate this year based purely on mileage alone.


AUDI AG is one step ahead of the opposition yet again: The inventor of ‘TDI’ will fight, as the world’s first automobile manufacturer, for overall victory with a diesel engine at the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans. The new Audi R10 is powered by a completely new 5.5-litre, twelve-cylinder bi-turbo TDI engine which is extremely economical and quiet.

The Le Mans Prototype, with over 650 hp and more than 1100 Newton metres of torque, significantly exceeds the power produced by the majority of previous Audi racing cars – including that of its victorious R8 predecessor.

Audi ventures into previously unexplored diesel-engine terrain with the V12 power plant manufactured completely from aluminium. The enormous torque of over 1100 Newton metres not only makes extreme demands of the R10 transmission system – as even the Formula 1 specification engine dynamometers at Audi Sport had to be reequipped with special gearboxes capable of withstanding the unusual forces.

For the non Eurofags amongst us 1100 Newton meters is 811.3 lb ft of torque.
I would take this car with my 'stang in a 300 mi, race (if we were limited to one tank of fuel)
