Le Mans 2019 BMW Exhibition & M8 GTE

I wanted to check out the M8, so I went over to Le Mans for the test day.
No wonder they are pulling out - completely underwhelmed by it. Car really gives the impression it is not competitive enough compared to the rest of the field.
Anyway the day was saved by a surprise BMW temporary exhibition in the Museum at the track.

Some photos I took for your viewing pleasure.

Bonus iPhone video as well for what it's worth

Perhaps it's early in the development/testing phase....hopeful they'll turn it around.

LeMans was the last WEC race for the M8 GTE; they announced they were pulling out a few weeks ago.

It's really a good race car, but it ended up getting BOP'd to death from the start and people wonder why it sucks. I still don't understand for LeMans, with the poor performances by BMW M8 GTE in WEC so far, why did they still get reduced boost and increased weight
