    So I just got word that BMW will run in ALMS in '09. They'll have a V8 powered M3 and run in GT2. Team owner is one Mr. Bobby Rahal. No word on drivers or other good details just yet.

    Edit: just found this.....

    Mysterious European investors have recently entered the picture and have decided that, yes, I will be one of the drivers. It is well worth the price of admission.

    ^^^ really? I figured they would have jumped at Chaparralman since he's the great F1 (almost) phenom!!

    They actually talked to him first, but thought he had too much experience.

    It just wouldn't be fair for him to beat the LMP1 Audi in the GT2 BMW.
