Porsche Centre Chester’s annual road trip to Cologne, Germany is something many of our customers look forward to. With an unrivalled itinerary for fans and enthusiasts of motorsport, it isn’t hard to see why the event is continuing to become even more of a success year on year.
Now in its fifth consecutive year, the event welcomed 16 guests and nine cars for 2018. This year’s event was held over six days and has been the most anticipated trip to date, and with good reason - this time we were taking part in a very special full track day at Spa-Francorchamps circuit. This track is home to the Formula One Belgian Grand Prix and is a firm favourite for racing drivers and fans.
The line-up of Porsche models this year was also a sight to see, with models including the 911 GT2 RS, 911 Carrera 4 GTS, 911 GT3, 718 Boxster S, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and Cayman GT4. The road trip brings together Porsche drivers for a rare opportunity to be in the company of likeminded people and experience their cars in a manner they are rarely able to find in England.
The six days included a go karting competition, plenty of driving, socialising and a track day at Spa-Francorchamps circuit. As with our previous road trips, this year was another unforgettable experience and we are already looking forward to next year.

* 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.
