“I can’t tell you how excited and proud I am that we’ll have the chance to run that car for BMW of North America obviously, but also BMW worldwide,” said BMW Team RLL’s Rahal. “That’s a big compliment for us and we take that very seriously. It’s very exciting because it means that we can run for overall victories.” Any day BMW reveals its motorsport plans is a good day, and we can’t wait to see this thing in action. More importantly, a successful Le Mans venture could lead to a proper BMW supercar revival. Bring back the M1 and make it better than an Audi R8 or a Mercedes-AMG GT, and BMW will have many more adoring fans and customers.
