After yesterday’s rather odd release of information around the still not officially confirmed BMW LMDH programme there has been a steady stream of information from a multitude of industry sources about what we are set to hear when the programme is officially announced.
What is clear is that the BMW programme is focused around the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship, with funding primarily sourced from BMW North America, the car debuting at the Rolex 24 Hours in 2023.
DSC understands and expects Dallara to be confirmed as the chassis supplier.
Whilst no FIA WEC programme is confirmed, there is potential for one to be added, most likely in a semi-factory form.
On Le Mans, DSC understands that the programme has been approved to accommodate Le Mans, but is not dependent upon an invitation being offered and then up.
