On Thursday 22 March Porsche Centre Chester hosted a very special Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition evening. The competition involves Centres restoring a 986 Boxster S model, preparing it for racing, and then competing in a series of races on the iconic tracks of Silverstone and Brands Hatch.
Approximately 90 guests were welcomed to the Centre for an informative discussion with Steve Kevlin from Porsche Club Motorsport, followed by a sneak preview of the 986 Boxster S currently being restored by Porsche Centre Chester. Our guests were given the opportunity to explore the car in the workshop and ask our Technicians about the ongoing restoration
Porsche Centre Chester is incredibly proud to be taking part in the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition and our Technicians are working tirelessly to restore and prepare the car. Carl Hazelton, Centre Principal and our driver for the races, is very keen to get behind the wheel.
The first race meeting is at Brands Hatch on 5 May. If you would like to attend the race, or for any further information about the competition, please contact Kat Griffiths by email.
* 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.
