On Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 May, the first round of the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition was held at Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit.
The Porsche Centre Nottingham team arrived on Friday to prep for the big races and on Saturday afternoon our restored Martini-Racing inspired Boxster S (986) took to the track for the first time, driven by Wayne Minogue, one of our Porsche-trained Technicians. Competing against 15 other Restoracing teams, Wayne, who has no previous racing experience or professional tuition on this circuit, managed to achieve fourth in both races.
Centre Principal, Michael Mason commented, "Seeing the finished car take to the starting line with the Martini-Racing inspired livery was very special and we are incredibly proud with the result and how the car performed. Well done to the whole team."
The next race will be taking place on 2 June at Silverstone (Grand Prix Circuit).
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. 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. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy 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. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
