It is extremely cost prohibitive.
This is BMWNAs last year running in the ALMS with the current cars and there is no future development program.
BMW will run in VLN (anything goes) and DTM. BMW is building customer cars for GT3/GT4/WTCC and that is basically it and DTM.
DTM is going to be stateside and there are rumors of endurance races as well. DTM is much more cost efficient and gets similar coverage.
No, I don't know anything about BMW Motorsport. But I can't believe they won't have any GT2, GT3 and GT4 cars anymore. To officially race only DTM and WTCC is just too little, especially BMW no more being in F1 or LMP.
