Our third annual visit to Cologne


Porsche Centre Chester was delighted to hold the third annual customer trip to Cologne, Germany, in September 2016. The weekend was hosted by Centre Principal Carl Hazelton, and Marketing Executive Kat Smith, both of whom accompanied the twelve  911 customers on the trip.

The group left King George Dock in Hull bound for four days of great driving and company, along with some beautiful scenery as they headed to Germany where the cars were crafted.

Upon arrival at the Maritim Hotel in Cologne, guests enjoyed an afternoon of sightseeing at their leisure. Sunday morning was greeted with nervous anticipation as the group headed off to the legendary Nürburgring race track, where the Porsche 918 supercar holds the lap record of 6 minutes 57 seconds. The sun was shining as they ventured out onto the old circuit so the group were able complete a few fast laps without the risk of any moisture on the track.

Other highlights included go-karting at Michael Schumacher's go-kart centre, dinner at Poncho's Steakhouse and lunch on the final day in the beautiful town of Delft.

The trip was fantastic and highly enjoyed by our customers, who got to experience some unforgettable driving and forged some wonderful new friendships.
