    SpeedTV is in the course of showing the whole season within a few weeks. Portland and Lime Rock were also shown last Saturday. They'e not that fast - remember they're VW Diesels.

    VW did tests with the TDI for this TDI cup at VIR last I was there. They are so quiet, and fast I guess.. First race event at VIR was fun to watch. I thought that one guy was gonna flip it at the end.

    Is it possible to find their laptimes? I went searching on the website, but couldn't get times.

    VW Jetta TDI qualifying times at Thunderbolt ranged from 1:45 to 1:52


    BUT that was in the rain. So don't get you hopes up Car 54. Best race laps were in the 1:32s so they are faster than a Z3 M Coupe.

    At VIR best laps were 2:14.
    While the TV coverage leads you to believe they are bone stock, one of the drivers told me the cars have Euro ECUs and several other small changes.
