Nürburg. 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.
