BMW enters Le Mans GT2 class

BMW hasn’t raced in Le Mans for over 11 years, since they ran the V10 Prototype in 1999. ¬†As the cars on the lineup for the 2010 Le Mans were revealed, it appears 2 BMW E92 M3s are registered in the GT2 class!

Seeing as BMW has pulled out of Formula One, it appears they are redistributing some of their racing technology, staff, and resources into various ‘other’ forms of motorsports. ¬†Should be interesting to see how they do in the competitive GT2 class against C6 Corvettes, Porsches, and Ferraris.

Thanks to Jalopnik for the tip!

Wallpaper time!

YEAH I KNOW it’s not a ‘vintage’ race car, but damn the *brand new* AUDI R15 TDI is one of the most beautiful modern race cars i’ve ever seen.
