This "question" has already been answered- No, it's not going to happen.

This is actually not true.
Ever since BMW re-entered with Team RLR in '09 ALMS viewership has steadily increased, and with the new broadcast contract with ABC/ESPN, even more so.
The season opener this year broke all records making it the most watched Sebring race...EVER.

That being said, BMW's departure from the GT class will not help matters as the ALMS trys to secure a foothold.
