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.”

* 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.
