Porsche Centre Wilmslow travelled to Donington over the Easter weekend to take on the first Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship race of the 2019 season.
Parts Manager Alistair Nelson got behind the wheel of our Richard Atwood liveried Boxster 986 taking sixth position in qualifying and fourth in the first race. After starting from sixth position in the second race, Alistair had a fantastic drive, taking third place for a podium finish. Albert Walsh, chairman of motorsport for Porsche Club GB, presented Alistair with his trophy.
The second race of the season was at Brands Hatch on the first weekend of May and was Porsche-trained Technician Sam Beckett’s turn take to the wheel for the first time. Unfortunately, the weather was against us which made for some slippery racing out on the track, but Sam did us all proud - especially with it being his first race in our 986.
We ended the weekend on a positive note when Alistair presented a wonderful Restoracing cake - from one driver to another - to congratulate Sam on completing his first race weekend.
We are all looking forward to the next race which is at Brands Hatch on 7 July.

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. 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. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel 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. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
