The MINI Bulldog racing team has taken the green flag at the 24H Nurburgring. The epic 24 hour race in the world is underway at the most demanding racetrack in the world.

The MINI Bulldog racing team is technically racing a modified Cooper S but those modifications all stem of the JCW GP making it essentially the first official GP race car. The most obvious alteration is the massive wing and other aero bits that have been added. That wing actually adds 176 lbs of downforce at speed – essential for a track like the Ring.
