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 punctures.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption and range were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the German automotive market. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC figures listed have been adjusted to the NEDC measurement method where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the “Manual on the fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption of new cars”, available at sales outlets free of charge, from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen and at
