Perhaps lack of funds/interest.
That and the fact that in the FIA GT1 champ even using a proven car like the Corvette C6 didn't make it easy to (try to) beat the MC12, even with the Maserati getting more and more restriction every year. Just consider that no one raced the DBR9 last year.

On the other hand bringing the car to another series, like the LMS as Oreca did with the Saleen iirc could have provided them with more chances, given the CCR was respecting ACO rules as well.

I think no one was interest at first, and racing the car with K's own money for the first year was just too expensive.
