BMW In GP?

A Simple Antenna Signals BMW's MotoGP Ambitions
By Dirck J. Edge



Spy shots of Jeremy McWilliams riding a prototype BMW roadracer have fueled speculation that BMW will enter MotoGP for several months. Now, crystal clear photos have emerged showing an FIM-spec transmitter antenna on the tail unit of a finished, beautifully painted BMW race bike piloted by McWilliams in Spain. BMW is ready!

When will we see BMW on the MotoGP grid first? All signs point to it happening this year, and perhaps as early as BMW's home race in Germany on July 16. Don't expect race wins (or even podiums) right away. If it does race, BMW will use this year for development, and would hire a top rider or two for a serious effort in 2007.

But I doubt it will be seen on the track this year. The rules for 2007 allow a maximum of 800cc's instead of 990cc. Unless they are as crazy as suzuki, then maybe we will see it on the track this year.
