I heard it several times back then and remember its sound very well.
Oddly, in spite of the lower displacement, the V8 used in the GT2 sounds exactly the same to my ears.confused.gif
Those cars shifted the paradigm on what a racecar can or should sound like.

The first time I heard one was at PIR in Oregon.
I would get right up to the fence in front of the grandstands and the Audis would be going by in excess of 100 MPH.
I would be no further than 10 feet and every time one would be go by me I would shake my head and mutter incoherently.biggrin.gif
Amazing how fast and silent,and the smell of the synth.fuel.

Ah,Canada Corner.I have a plate in my right arm as a souviner from my AMA days.

I was hoping to be there this year, but I just got too much going on right now.

However, I absolutely will be in Austin in November.wink.gif

Looks like BMW is kicking butt in DTM again this year. They just did a 1-2-3 finish at Spielberg.

Dr. Ulrich and Norbert Haug must be beet-red with frustration.

Wow! Marquez was on fire...until he wasnt.
Glad to see Rossi and Bautista are ok. That was pretty ugly.

Marquez was the man,for a bit.The pass he put on Pedrosa near the end was brilliant.Then he fell.once again Honda has the grunt but the Yamaha seems to have found some speed to add to their superior handling.Jorge checked out on lap one and done.215 mph on the front straight!!!!!!!!

Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't DTM tweak their rules in order to entice BMW to join the series?
I vaguely remember something to that affect.

I do not know one way or the other. If they did, Audi can suck it.They got plenty of breaks in Le Mans racing. tongue.gif

LOL...yeah, they certainly did.
As much as I respect and admire what they have accomplished, their diesel fuel-based prototypes should never be allowed to compete head-to-head with the petrol cars.

I agree. Interesting but not practical. What kind of car is that in your picture?

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!

We'll have to disagree. I hate that car. And it's not really relevant. I've seen it numerous times at races and like it less each time.

I need to come up with a special lyric for that car, Chrome Member (sung to the tune of Goldfinger). biggrin.gif
