These guys never really get the good luck they deserve... quite a few times these guys have had a car easily capable of running with Audi etc but due to their "Privateer" status always have to play 2nd fiddle... I remember a couple of seasons ago at Utah they were easily leading but due to being only allowed ONE set of the "good" tires (Audi got the preferential treatment), once they were used up it was back to running 7th or something behind all the factory teams
