On Sunday 2 September, the Festival of Porsche returned to Brands Hatch, for the first time since 2014, for a special celebration of Germany’s most iconic sports car manufacturer, complete with racing, demonstrations and displays.
The Festival of Porsche also brought the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition 2018 to a close by hosting the final two races in the series. Competing against 14 other Restoracing teams, our driver Wayne achieved 6th place in both races for Porsche Centre Nottingham, boasting a fasted lap time of 56.837 seconds.
Wayne, who finished 6th place overall in the Competition, commented “This was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate 20 years since the iconic Porsche Boxster was launched and allowed us to show off our work as a team of skilled Porsche Technicians! Being able to race the car against other Porsche Centres was nerve wracking but definitely a highlight for me. Hopefully we will be able to be a part of it again next year!”
Congratulations to all the Centres that took part in the competition.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
