With BMW out of F1 and future plans with the World Touring Car Championship always in a state of flux, it would appear a switch back to DTM is a real possibility according to Autosport. It would be a welcome return to the touring car ‘s greatest racing series and a chance to see BMW compete directly with Audi.
Here ‘s an excerpt from the Autosport article:
>BMW board member Klaus Draeger said: “We have deliberately spoken about an involvement in touring cars in the broader sense. ” The company ‘s motorsport director, Mario Theissen, added: “WTCC is part of the touring car spectrum. It is no secret that we aren ‘t particularly happy about the developments last year and this year, but no decision has been made.
> “In any case, we will be present in touring car racing, both with works-supported programmes and in customer competition. We could also imagine other future projects, which we are not ready to talk about yet. ”
