BMW will return to Le Mans 24 Hours and the top sports car racing in the new LMDh class of prototypes in 2023.
Munich took the victory in Le Mans with the prototype V12 LMR in 1999, and it has been thinking about returning for some time. The move was confirmed by BMW boss Markus Flasch by posting on Instagram a picture of the car with the caption “We’re back, Dayton 2023.”
However, details of the project have not been announced yet. Confirmation that the first BMW race will be Daytona in 2023 suggests that it will make a car for the new LMDh class.
Porsche, Audi and Acura have already confirmed that they will enter the LMDh class, which will be suitable for the American IMSA championship, which includes Dayton 24 Hours and the World Endurance Championship. That latter championship includes Le Mans and also includes cars in the Le Mans Hypercar class, including Toyota, Peugeot and Ferrari. BMW has not specified whether it will launch dual programs at IMSA and WEC or will offer its cars to private individuals.
BMW is considering future moto-moto projects after confirming it will retire from the Formula E championship at the end of this season.
