Restoracing Team visits primary school

22/7/2019

Team members from Porsche Centre Nottingham visited Greasley Beauvale Primary School, Newthorpe on Monday 8 July to talk to a class of pupils about competing in the Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship 2019.

Year One and Year Four pupils at the local school were joined by Wayne Minogue, one of our Restoracing drivers, and Robbie Brown, a member of the support team responsible for ensuring the car is in race ready condition.

The visit was organised as part of the school’s Aspiration Week which aims to inspire pupils to think about their future careers. Wayne and Robbie talked to the classes about what it’s like to be a Porsche-trained Technician, working on such exciting cars every day. Pupils also heard lots about the Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship which challenges Porsche Centres from across the UK to source, restore and race a classic 986 Boxster S.

Following their talk, pupils were able to get up close with Porsche Centre Nottingham’s restored 986 Boxster S and even had the opportunity to have a ride in a miniature children’s version in the school playground. 

Wayne Minogue, Gold level Porsche-trained Technician said: “We were delighted to be given the opportunity to come and meet the pupils and tell them all about the Restoracing Championship. They had a great day hearing about the Championship, looking round the car and having a drive in our mini Restoracing car.”
