Why did BMW quit?

Discussion in '1999 BMW LMR' started by F U C K, Aug 21, 2003.

  1. They had a very competitive car in the 1998 season and got an overall victory at Le Mans the following year (although they started way off the pace of the Toyota GT1's and the Mercedes CLR's). Then they won the Sebring 12 Hours too! But I cannot recall seeing much of them after that. Obviously the car had a TON of potential using the same engine as the McLaren F1's so why did BMW just break off and suddenly leave the racing circuits???
