The Le Mans 24 hour endurance race is one of the most prestigious automobile races in the world and a highly anticipated event in any motorsport enthusiast’s diary.
To celebrate this significant occasion, as well as showing the whole race at the Centre on 17 and 18 June, we will host our own endurance event for charity. Teams will compete for 24 hours on a treadmill, with each team member taking it in turns to either run or walk and complete the entire 24 hour race.
Four treadmills, supplied by Technogym, will be available at the Centre and the Porsche Centre Chester team will be raising money for Alder Hey children’s charity. Please visit our Just Giving page to sponsor us.
We are looking for three more teams to enter. Teams can be made up with as few or as many participants as you wish. For instance, if you want to enter a team of six people, each person would be responsible for covering the treadmill for four hours (not consecutively). Alternatively, a team could be made up of 24 participants who would each run or walk on the treadmill for one hour.
Your own team will be running for a charity of your choice, and this charity will be promoted throughout the build up to the event. We ask that each team raises a minimum of £500 and to guarantee this, a deposit of £500 will be taken when your team entry is confirmed. This will be fully refunded to you after the event if the target is hit. If you do not reach the £500 target, the difference will be made up with your deposit and the rest then refunded to you.
*Data determined in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) as required by law. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp . 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.
