Some say it was pure luck, others say it was a gift that BMW RLR team received, but the outcome is what matters these days and the M3 GTs took the title home. In our opinion, well deserved, while winning a single race this season, Road America, BMW has shown consistency, sustainability and more important, constant progress from race to race.

Petit Le Mans was also the only race in the 2010 ALMS when BMW cars have not made the podium. In the motorsport world, consistency is what wins championships, and team work is the foundation of success, and indeed, BMW Rahal Letterman Racing Team acted as a team this year, from the marketing strategy to promote the championship, to the engineers that built the cars and improved them after each race, to the talented drivers and pitstop mechanics, and last but not least, to experience brought by Bobby Rahal and the enthusiasm and German competitive spirit brought by Martin Birkmann.

Hats down to everyone that contributed and congratulations are now more appropriate than ever. Not only BMW brings a great win back home to Munich, they also won the respect of many in the motorsport industry and set the foundation for the future. GT racing can be and will be exciting, and the final lap at Petit Le Mans comes to validate this statement.

  • Woo Hoo

    nobody cares about BMW racing.

    We want to read about the next big thing, that WE as consumers can buy, and show off to our neighbors and fellow drivers on the road that cannot afford the roundel (or those who can only afford the 1er….lol).

      M3 is big thing, don’t you see it? If you want to show something to your neighbours, go and buy some fancy car. BMWs are driver’s, not neighbour’s, car, for driver’s pleasure. You gave really pathetic comment on great success of car based on M3. Shame on you.

      • Wooo hoo.

        Don’t get me wrong, the M3 is a beast, but most people buy it for the badge and could care less about it’s racing pedigree.

      Well I for one do care alot about BMW racing, and know many others that do as well. So there goes your theory out the window. I’m pretty sure all the fans sitting on top of the hill at Road Atlanta this weekend would disagree as well.
