I wonder why AUDI have never pursued a rally derivative of any of their road cars since the ur quattro, (though I think I've seen a late 80 once on a stage). Always hoped they'd do something with the A4 but it's probably to heavy, but they've not even made an effort with the A3.

VW ran a TDI golf a few years back, but as the father of the modern rally format (turbo 4wd) I find it strange that Audi aren't present.

Any thoughts?
