AMG has begun work on a Mercedes racer based on the SLK roadster. The car conforms to GT1 regulations but Mercedes has not approved a BPR or Le Mans racing program yet. If the program comes about, it could be funded by the money originally budgeted to the now defunct ITC series. According to AutoWeek magazine, "some Mercedes board members don't believe the company's mulit-million-dollar involvement in Formula One has produced the image that Mercedes wants".
