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, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
