We pride ourselves in being an online publication that covers everything and anything BMW related, from news, test drives, spy photos to auto shows, racing and many other subjects. We always try to find different angles and new subjects with the clear scope to offer every BMW fans bits of information they are interested in. Over the course of last 10-12 months, we learned that many of you are huge BMW Motorsport fans, from the once exciting Formula 1 Championship to MotorGP competitions and American LeMans racing in the U.S.

Our goal for this year was to attend an F1 race with the BMW Sauber Team and also, an American LeMans race with the BMW Rahal Letterman team. While our dreams to see live a Formula 1 race with the BMW Sauber team might have been shuttered for us this year and in the near future, we are excited to announce that we will be attending the Road America race this weekend with the BMW Rahal Letterman team.

Now you know that our goal is to involve you as much as we can in our activities, either by requesting feedback, advice or simply providing you a way to be connected to us through different channels. Today, we are going to ask for your input and most important, we will be “your voice” at the American LeMans event.

Since we are going to conduct several interviews with key people in the BMW Rahal Letterman team(drivers, Bobby Rahal, engineers, BMW Motorsport), we think it will be a great idea to give you the chance to ask your own questions.

So, we will use this article as a way to collect all the questions that you might have for the team, questions that relate to the amazing technology in the M3 GT2, the engineering behind it, future plans for the team, drivers feedback, etc….ANYTHING goes.

You have until Saturday morning to submit the questions you would like us to ask either through the comment box below or if you prefer, directly on Twitter. As usual, we will provide live coverage and photos on Facebook, Twitter and of course, directly on the blog.

    Please ask if there any significant changes for next year, in terms of team strategy, car, pilots..

  • Paul

    how do they see bmw exit from F1? Corporate strategy or just quitters? would bmw exit F1 if they had been 1st on the constructors championship?

  • Gord

    This is a bit random, but race cars produce lots of downforce, so could a regular human stand on that spoiler and not break it ?

  • bmwtechal

    to H.B.
    im emailing you my question driectrly. hope you dont mind.

    • Horatiu B.

      Not at all Al, please do so

  • Shawn

    With BMW’s withdrawl from F1, will there be a re-allocation of resources to the ALMS project?

    Will any F1 engineers/designers be moved to the ALMS project?

    Will BMW be fielding cars in the LMP1 or 2 category?!? Audi has “made a point” with it’s diesels… BMW could and should compete with Diesels! Any thoughts on this?

    Much like Ferrari with their “challenge Stradale” or Scuderia production cars, or Mercedes with the CLK GTR, would BMW ever consider selling a GT2esque stripped down street legal but track oriented M3 (even a notch hotter than the CSL)?

    What is the ALMS BMW budget? (if this info is not classified)

    Finally, a huge congradulations on the recent podium!!!

    Many thanks for considering these questions!!!

    Will BMW continue with Dunlop tires in 2010?

    • Horatiu B.

      From what I know, yes, but let me send the question to BMW Motorsport and see their reply.
