The German manufacturer, which joined the WEC in the GTE Pro class this season, has had a representative in the sessions of the technical working group for the drafting of standards that have taken place since June, according to Autosport and confirmed by the director of BMW to this medium. «We have been on the circuit since the beginning of the year, but we started to actively participate after Le Mans in order to gain a better understanding of the overall direction of the project,» said BMW Motorsport boss Jens Marquardt.
«Our main intention to participate is to have an idea of the additional plans that the technical work group performs, especially with respect to future technologies.» This is our usual approach: as a company, of course, we want to be informed about the developments of a of the most important series of motor sports «, qualifies the head of BMW Motorsport. But BMW, the winner of Le Mans in 1999, does not commit to a lower cost category than the current LMP1. BMW is currently in the DTM and next year will enter as an official team in Formula E.
