Each year, Porsche Centre Chester organises a special drive event for its customers - a road trip like no other. Organised entirely by the Centre, the annual European road trip welcomes Porsche Centre Chester customers to a Porsche ‘drive out’ which starts in the UK and travels to Cologne in Germany and then to Spa in Belgium.
Now in its sixth consecutive year, the 2019 Porsche Centre Chester European road trip welcomed eight guests and two hosts from the Centre. Four Porsche 911 models, including two from the latest 992 generation, and a Cayenne Turbo made up a five vehicles convoy. Here is the itinerary we followed:
Day One – Lunch and then drive to Hull to catch the ferry for Rotterdam.
Day Two – Arrive in Rotterdam where we then drive to Cologne, Germany. Explore Cologne during the day followed by a group dinner in the evening.
Day Three – Go Karting tournament at Michael Schumacher’s go karting centre followed by a group dinner in the evening.
Day Five – Full track day at the F1 Spa Francorchamps followed by group dinner in the evening.
Day Six – Explore the town of Spa during the day with some lunch. Travel together to Rotterdam for the ferry home. Dinner on-board together.
Day Seven – Arrive in Hull for the journey home.
The annual Cologne trip is a popular event and one that always surpasses expectations. From experiencing the thrills of the Nürburgring, to competing in a go karting completion, and then having a full day of driving on the famous Spa Francorchamps circuit, there was never a dull moment.

*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.
