I've been looking at european rally footage on google video lately and I have yet to see a recent one with an audi in it? Has Audi stopped sponsering? I mean they have the a3 and s1, but do they race them?

Audi hasn't been in rallying formally for a while now. These days the VAG representation is via Skoda Octavia, then the Fabia. For 2006... Skoda isn't listed in the site.
For the NASA/ESRC events, there is a guy with a Euro-rally spec S2 that races.
In SCCA... there was a TT rally car that did compete a few years ago (Eric MaCaire drove it...)

Re: (GT17V)

Yeah my bad i was going to insist that VW was Audi but this vehicle is Porsche so it doesn't count...
Looking forward to the day when Ingolstadt jumps back in with both feet, and brings a forced-induction new 5-cyl to liven things up!

That's because Audi (the factory team) hasnt entered a rally since 1987. There has been numerous privateers up to the mid 90s though.

I can't believe someone rallies with an OEM S2 bumper and RS2 headlights. Those would be uber expensive to replace if he cracked up the front end.

It's an rally-built S2 imported from Europe.
Scott Gardner is a really nice guy,
He tends to compete in the NASA/ESRC rally championships
