They arent competing in the high dollar P1 class (formerly P900) in Le Mans, instead they are letting their partner audi use their name plate to boost sales. Instead they are DOMINATING the GT class with their GT3 and GT3 RS.

They arent doing CART or IRL any more... but do you blame them? Its a mess! F1 is a joke now too, its so high dollar. So aside from Nascar, Le Mans is the next highest grossing road racing out there. You could argue they should get into WRC, but last time they did that FIA changed the rules so they couldnt compete.
