Sunday 2 September marked the final of the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition at Brands Hatch. This also coincided with the Festival of Porsche, an event not to missed and a big date in the calendar for Porsche Centre Chester.
Our team of Porsche-trained Technicians restored a 986 Boxster S for the restoracing competiton, and it has gone on to compete in five other rounds before the final with Carl Hazelton, Centre Principal behind the wheel.
The team were excited to be going to the final and to mark this occasion, in conjunction with the Festival of Porsche, Porsche Centre Chester organised a drive out from the Centre to Brands Hatch.
Upon arrival at the Centre on Saturday, 22 guests were welcomed and introduced to one another, before all driving in convoy to Brands Hatch in various Porsche cars. The line-up of eleven Porsche models driving down the motorway in convoy was a sight to behold and was an exciting start to the weekend.
That evening, guests enjoyed a delicious meal courtesy of Porsche Centre Chester. The following morning everyone drove together to Brands Hatch. It was a glorious day and the company was fantastic. All guests of the Centre were treated to Porsche hospitality tickets which included food, drinks an unparalleled views of the track.
Everyone showed their support for Carl Hazelton, who finished in 8th position overall in the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition, based on scores from all six rounds of racing.
We would like to thank everyone that attended our drive out, and further congratulate Carl and our restoracing team on a fantastic effort!
