Bulldog Racing’s MINI John Cooper Works in the second race of the Nürburgring Endurance Series (NLS).


Nürburg. An unfortunate tire choice at the start of
the race and two punctures in the further course of the race lost the
team a better result. In its class (VT-2 FWD) the MINI John Cooper
Works finished in 13th place out of 16 starters. During the pit stop
in the third lap the rain tires were swapped for slicks. In the fourth
lap, Bulldog Racing’s MINI John Cooper Works pitted again with a flat
front left tire. On the penultimate lap, the front right tire fell
victim to a yet another puncture. In total, the team had to pit five
times in the four hours of the race and completed a total of 21 laps.
The MINI John Cooper Works of Bulldog Racing finished the second race
of the season at the Nürburgring without an accident. Sebastian
Sauerbrei (GER) “Unfortunately we made the wrong tire choice at
the beginning and started on rain tires. The predicted rain did not
arrive at the track, so I came into the pits on the third lap to pick
up the slicks.” That pit stop, along with a puncture on the
fourth lap, caused Bulldog Racing’s MINI John Cooper Works to lose
valuable time. Sebastian completed 15 laps, his fastest time was a
09:56.38. Charlie Cooper (GBR) set his new best time on the MINI John
Cooper Works with 10:33.30 on his seventh lap and did not suffer any
