Nürburg. A completely new MINI John Cooper Works with
a 6-speed manual transmission will complement Bulldog Racing’s
line-up, competing with Start Number #126 in the VT2-FWD class at this
year’s 24-hour race at the Nürburgring.
In addition to that, the crowd favorite red MINI John Cooper Works
#112 from last years’ 50th anniversary 24-hour race at the Nürburgring
was continuously developed during the winter break in Nürburg and will
again start in the SP3T class.
“On our path to becoming an all-electric brand, we are working
very intensively on concepts for John Cooper Works models with an
electrified drivetrain. We are delighted that two MINI John Cooper
Works race cars from Bulldog Racing are flying the flag for us in this
24-hour race at the Nürburgring” says Stefanie Wurst, Head of the MINI Brand.
Charlie Cooper (GBR), whose grandfather John Cooper invented the Mini
Cooper in 1961, will be making his 24-hour race debut after having
already completed two NLS races in 2023. Prior to that, the Englishman
had successfully qualified for his DMSB Permit Nordschleife. The rest
of the driver line-up, as well as technical details of the race cars,
will be announced at a later date.
