The first race at Donington Park


The Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship is back for its second year and our Centre Principal Carl Hazelton is once again behind the wheel of our 986 Boxster S race car.

Last month, the first race meeting of the 2019 season was hosted at Donington Park. After qualifying, Carl was competitive throughout and finished the first race in fifth place. The second race was fierce and Carl managed to get into third place, but then the safety car came out and slowed everyone down. Unfortunately, Carl lost his podium position and finished the race in sixth place.

This year has seen some welcome changes to the setup of the Boxster S models racing in the Championship. All cars have now been fitted with new suspensions consisting of revised springs and dampers and specially produced suspension mountings which are used in conjunction with GT3 front suspension arms.

After an exciting start to the season, Carl and the rest of the team at Porsche Centre Chester are looking forward to the next set of races which will, no doubt, we are expecting to be just as competitive as those at Donington Park.

Carl Hazelton comments ‘It was a very exciting start. The season should be a lot of fun and I am very much looking forward to the next race at Brands Hatch on 4 May. Thank you for all the support from my team who did an outstanding job and also thank you to the customers who supported us on the day.”
