Agree with this, but since they are competing for title, what's the problem help team achieve that?
JAS has sent new car after Tassi crashed in Austria, they want to help, but I think Audi Sport main concern is selling cars, not helping teams that already bought their cars.

No problem at all, a bit of support would indeed make sense. Though I also agree with FIRE that Comini isn't always as political with his statements, there could very well be some important information left out of that story.

Also, if testing is that important for you, why not organize something yourself?

I have no problem with him being honest, but some time he goes too far
Maybe they tried to organise testing, and couldn't find free cars?

IIRC Comtoyou Racing has no connection with WRT.

There was a link, if it isn't WRT it's ex-WRT people.

AFAIK they are still evaluating a 2018 "privateer" program.

Those manufacturer liveries combined with those names give me the WTCC S2000 vibes. I must say I like it!
