    BMW returns to ALMS

    Good news. Rahal-Letterman is running an M3 in the GT2 class. Glad to have a taste of BMW Motorsport in North America again!

    Thumbs up Sweet!!

    I certainly hope it'll be running at Sebring, as I'll be there to witness. And, if it is, I certainly hope it kicks Porsche's tail! Just like the M3 GTR did a few years back. Well, now we have a real production M3 with a V8. What will Porsche cry about this time?

    M3 Returns to Racing

    Here's a link to some pictures of the M3 prototype that will serve as the basis for the actual Rahal-Letterman car.

    Now to set up a visit to the Rahal facility like we used to do with PTG, of course Hilliard Ohio is a little bit further than Winchester VA.

    Angry not 'til '09

    OK, I was so excited to hear the news that I missed the fact that they won't run until next year... : (

    Something to look forward to for next year though....

    I will be at the BMW Performance Center on Monday.
    Rahal and Auberlin will be there too.

    Is this to do a Speed Test Drive of the new M3? I heard that Tommy Kendall will be there also. Any chance of posting some pictures?

    Yep. Come to think of it. I think Auberlin won't be there, but Boris should.

    You know I'll post pictures if I can take them.
    I wish I had a video camera.

    Just don't tell anyone else.
