no bmw does not have a moto gp team. this is their first year in World SBK and well, they should be sucking. although they arent winning races, getting on the podium at all is a feat similar to winning the whole championship. last week, troy corser placed third in italy to everyones amazement. the bike is incredible. the accomplishments are astounding. bmw will be a force to be reckoned with. these are all the necessary steps to get to the grand prix level.
