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.
*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.
