  1. It's now being said we'll have the ALMS BMW announcement at the Chicago auto show later this month.
     
  2. GT2 Right?
     
  3. That's what's been rumored.

    Yes, now it's official. BMW has an annoucement planned for 3:30 Central time regarding the news.

    It's thought that Rahal-Letterman Racing will be the Works team for the program and that the car could debut this year by Petit Le Mans or Laguna Seca.
     
  4. M3 GTR? M6? M5?
