As one of the most demanding endurance races in the world, the 52nd edition of the 24 Hours Nürburgring will test the limits of both man and machine on the iconic Nürburgring. The longest racetrack in the world – a 25.378 km long combination of the Nordschleife and Grand Prix circuit – will be contested by 130 vehicles in 23 different classes, and over 450 drivers from three dozen nations.

With a legacy rooted in motorsport, John Cooper Works brings a formidable lineup of racecars to this year’s competition. From the adrenaline-fueled MINI John Cooper Works PRO #317 to the precision-engineered MINI John Cooper Works #474, each car is built in Oxford, UK, and then meticulously crafted in Nürburg at Bulldog Racing to deliver unrivalled performance and reliability on the track.

The MINI John Cooper Works PRO, sporting #317, is based on the new MINI John Cooper Works, which debuts at the Nürburgring ahead of its world premiere later in fall 2024 and is camouflaged in a red and white themed motorsport wrap designed by the MINI Design Team.

The drivers for MINI John Cooper Works PRO (#317), which competes in the SP-3T class:

Charlie Cooper (GBR)

Markus Fischer (AUT)

Christoph Kragenings (GER)

Sebastian Sauerbrei (GER)

The MINI John Cooper Works, with #474, is the only car equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission starting at this year’s edition of the race. It stands as a testament to John Cooper Works’ commitment to precision engineering and driving excellence.

Drivers for MINI John Cooper Works 1to6 edition (#474), which competes in the VT-2 class:

Michael Bräutigam (GER)

Andreas Hilgers (GER)

Sascha Korte (GER) 

Marco Zabel (GER) 

As the excitement builds for the 24 Hours Nürburgring, John Cooper Works and Bulldog Racing remain focused on achieving success on the track while pushing the boundaries of performance and reliability. The organizers expect over 200,000 visitors over the weekend.
