Jeff's Viewpoint

Mosport international Raceway May 17th 2003

Wet weather was the plan for Audi quattro racer Jeff Pabst and his Pfaff Audi
sponsored STaSIS Engineering Quattro A4, but as the sun opened up during qualifying
Saturday, so did too the transmission of his Audi and also his teammate's Jon Prall.
This is a very rare occurance for the Audi transmission to break, but is attributed
to the standing starts which are used in the Speed TC series and are very hard on equipment.
Both cars did qualify but with only three hours till race time the thought of repairing
two broken Quattro transmissions in time seemed an impossible task.  Only one spare trans
was on hand by the team and team owner Paul Lambert elected to install it in series regular
Jon Prall's car due to  the valuable points available with a strong finish. Which left Jeff's
car with no gearbox.  But, with never give up Audi attitude, and the help of the boys
at Champion Racing the trans was rebuilt using the two remaining broken units and it was
back in time for the team to perform a miraculous 20 minute installation and got Jeff
on the track, but unfortunately 3 laps down. Jeff did run with the leaders  showing his
strength, though not jeopardizing the competition. John Prall's Pfaff Audi finished 5th and
Jeff finished 32nd 3 laps down.  Stay tuned as Jeff has other racing opportunities coming up!
