• BMW Wins the ALMS GT Manufacturer's Championship - Suck on that Porsche

      We apologize for the aggressive headline. Actually, we don't, in your face Porsche. Seriously, right in your face. Since BMW is selling a V8 powered M3, no whining can save you this time. BMW was able to surpass Porsche in the standings with their 4th place finish at Road Atlanta. This was enough to give them just one point over Porsche who finished in 5th and was 1 point ahead entering the final race. This one came down to the last lap and was as close as it gets. A very deserving overall victory for BMW Motorsport who can now put the misfortune at Spa behind them.

      Oddly enough, this was the only race BMW did not finish on the podium yet it still gave them the championship. We want to congratulate all the drivers who did an incredible job in both M3's. Additionally, we want to thank the Rahal-Letterman for running what proved to be the most consistent car out there. BMW did not always qualify in the best fashion but the cars showed they had the best combination of endurance, power, and handling. They simply were the best all around cars, just like BMW's always are. The fact this was done in only the second year of campaigning the M3 after a prolonged absence makes it that much sweeter. Oh, and the fact Porsche had been running the GT3 uninterrupted since they forced BMW out of ALMS in 2002. Just something else to for Porsche fans to chew on. Congratulations to BMW Motorsport, ALMS GT Champions 2010!

        Hahahaha Sticky. Whats that saying, "Every dog has its day"? About time they won something substantial this year...

        BMW did do a great job, like many other teams, but the roots of you comments only originate from insecurity, and relieve that they actually won, albeit, by one point...

        If you watched the Spa race you know they field the best car. If it wasn't for a freak accident they would have taken that home as well. They were the best car all season. The insecurity is Porsche who ran to complain when BMW handed them their ass with their V8. They could not do anything about it this year. Click here to enlarge
