BMW's new CEO/Big Shot isn't so keen on racing. The previous chap did and was according to sources, a keen biker too. When this new dude was appointed the racing divisions had a feeling this was on the horizon. Clearly they weren't wrong. Yes, consultants probably made a strong business case for them to "out source" their SBK racing effort which apparently cost a small fortune (and was enough to fund a GP outift) I dont see BMW in motogp until the rules are clearly defined which wont be for another few years. Even if it is, they'll need to convince a board that racing in the world's premier class is worthy of an effort. I'm not holding my breath. If they join Motogp, it'll be on their terms and you know how unlikley that is.
