I can even take my own M3 to track day events on many of the same courses the ALMS cars compete on.
Would I watch DTM if it were broadcast here? If BMW drops out of ALMS I would but it's just not the same.
exactly - to me and the crew I run with, it's almost as bad as college football. We all cheer for our brands during the ALMS races with incredible pride regarding our make. And then run our cars at the track on the weekend trash talking for the earlier races. Not having a BMW team in ALMS next year will just about make me go buy a Corvette.
