Reports are coming in that BMW’s rumoured plans to enter the Supercars Championship sometime in the future have hit a snag, with Supercars issuing the organisation a fine for even thinking about trying to spice the series up a bit.
The Waterton Chronicle understands Supercars officials met with Paulie the Parity Pelican this morning to express their concern over media speculation last week that BMW might team up with Walkinshaw Andretti United, with the main concern being that the team might actually be quite good.
“We became concerned last week after hearing a rumour that another manufacturer (BMW) might try to enter the series. As you know, we’ve spent a lot of time and effort over the last few seasons trying to make it as difficult as possible for new manufacturers to join or existing ones to stay, so we were extremely concerned with what BMW might do” squawked Paulie the Parity Pelican.
“We’ve just got it back to Ford versus Holden, and we weren’t prepared to let BMW ruin that” continued the seabird.
Paulie went on to say that as a result of BMW’s “incorrect attitude”, Supercars has issued a $300,000 fine and docked 500 future championship points.
