The Bulldog Racing team had one hell of a 24 Hours of Nurburgring last year. Hit but the same car twice, it was one moment of bad luck to the next. However the team is back this year running the Nurburgring Endurance Championship and has completed the latest race in the series; the Rundstrecken-Challenge Nürburgring 2023.
Official Release: Bulldog Racing’s MINI JCW Makes It Through Latest Test at the Nurbringring
A packed grid and demanding conditions at the second race of the Rundstrecken-Challenge Nürburgring 2023 challenged the Bulldog Racing team. Ideal testing conditions for the crowd favorite bright red MINI John Cooper Works, which has been continuously developed and improved by the team since the first season last year. The driver duo Marco Zabel (DEU) and Markus Fischer (AUT) proved their excellent form and put in 11 laps in the reliable MINI John Cooper Works. Using the RCN as a test program allows the Nürburg based team valuable insights into the performance of the MINI John Cooper Works, which is now equipped with Michelin tires.
The green hell at the Nürburgring did not make it easy for the Bulldog Racing Team. Among the 180 participants in the race, there were gripping wheel-to-wheel duels on the 24-hour race track variant of the Nürburgring, which consists of a combination of the Nürburgring GP circuit and the legendary Nordschleife.
In September 2021 the starting signal was given for the ambitious motorsport project of Bulldog Racing. In 2022, the private Bulldog Racing team brought the first MINI John Cooper Works back onto the racetrack after a ten-year break at the 24h race on the Nürburgring. The modified production car is currently being prepared for upcoming racing events.
