Huarghahahaaaahaha! Does BMW realise that dtm cars uses same chassis same electronics same brakes same suspension same gearbox as their competitors? Even the aeros are tightly regulated/homolgated. The only area of a possible advantage is the engine and tyre wear management. Once they realise this they wont enter dtm. This series are not like the old days, mario.

I've lost respect to bmw motosport program when they quit f1, downsize wtcc and limit their participation in motorsport events under the guise of "bad economy". They are even worse than the french "cheese eating surrender monkeys". In fact i got more respect for french manufacturers in motorsport nowadays.

I'm amazed BMW are considering going back to DTM. They must be barmy - it is a dead end, with barely any connection to road cars. They'd be as well going back to F1 or doing LM style sports cars, which is what the DTM has become, saloon bodied F1/prototypes. I just don't get it.

This is why BMW are looking at 2012 for entry.

2012 is when the new regulations for the series come in to play and BMW/Audi and Merc have all been working together since summer last year to agree on a set of technical regulations that suit them all and should make the series more enjoyable...

maybe they can go back to the 'ring too?

I thought they're in talks with the JGTC as well to come up with the same rules / regulations. Potentially, this is a great series (great cars, proper V8 engines), but they do need more manufacturers.
