I thought their E92's weren't GTE class?

Didn't get to watch much, but saw some exciting P1 action for once. Should be crazy in the years to come with 4 major manufacturers in LMP1.
Agreed, Although the LMP class is such a walk in the park right now for Audi it was nice to see another car up in there. I usually am more interested in the GTE class as there are more action going on.

My guess is because BMW spends all their money on DTM.

Because BMW is too worried on making stupid new series of cars and suvs that we don't need...
