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. The modified production car is currently being prepared for upcoming racing events.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the automotive market in Germany. 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 are already calculated on the basis of the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC values listed have been calculated back to the NEDC measurement procedure where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the definition of taxes and other vehicle-related levies that 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 following web site
