It will be interesting but they can do it if they wanted to. I can't honestly say they will race again but there is still some chance under the current rules.

Gran Am is still using the old E39 M5 V8 and that is still competitive.
That is Turner Motorsports as you know, not a factory team. My original statements are in regard to factory BMW racing teams or heavily factory supported racing teams. Not a private team sticking a tired S62 in a tube frame and getting spanked every weekend.
