AUTOS: More BMW Motorsports Hyperbole...

Just cannot help keep pilin' on Der Sauerkraut, Ja-Ja!

Spotted the following when perusing the Car and Driver magazine's Online section via my Telephone's Newsline service - whilst "Sleepless in Seattle," again! Regarding BMW celebrating its 2016 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters championship clinched by Marco Wittmann in style, even if they're NOT available Stateside.

The Other Team RLL entry
Meanwhile Symbiotically, full-time Stateside Factory BMW chauffer John Edwards, the racer; Oh Never Mind! Late last year got the privilege 'O testing one of BMW's A-L-L conquering DTM Tintop Saloons at Jerez.

While one of BMW Team Schnitzer's DTM Pilotes' Martin Tomczyk will join Edwards aboard the (Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing's) Team BMW RLL No. 24 M6 GTLM for the entire 2017 IMSA season.

The duo will be joined by Der Niederlander' Nick Catsburg, a Dutch Saloon driver and Kuno Wittmer, who's name sounds vaguely familiar to me; Hmm? Perhaps another DTM competitor...

OOPS! My apologies to Herr Wittmer, who not only drove for BMW Team RLL briefly last year aboard it's No. 25 entry, primarily in the long distance events - but also part of the 2015 Rolex 24 GTD (Daytona) class winning #33 Riley Dodge Viper's chauffeurs Ja-Ja!

Actually Messer Wittmer  and BMW Team RLL compatriot Bruno Spengler are both Hosers hailing from Up North Eh! Like in Blame KanaDuh; Hya!

Top 10 Bimmers'
Whilst BMW was celebrating its centenary last year, Laguna Seca Raceway was getting in upon the party, when the German Automobile marque was featured during last Augusts' Monterey Motorsports Reunion festival.

As Y'all can see if you agree with this Top 10 assessment for what Randal, Thy No Fenders Moniker King would say are Truly Bitchin' BMW's in;
