Last week, Porsche Centre Wilmslow visited The Ryleys prep school in Alderley Edge with our Porsche (992) and our Restoracing Boxster S (986).
The children relished the opportunity to take a seat in the latest Porsche model and enjoyed discovering more about it, as well as our Restoracing Boxster S (986).
We talked through the process of how to become a race car driver - from learning how to steer the car to what you need to do to obtain a racing licence. We also discussed the safety processes in racing, such as how the track marshals inform drivers of track hazards. We even invited one of our racing drivers along so the children could meet a real racing driver.
A highlight was our Porsche Push Pedal Kart race, it was a great end to a fantastic visit.
* 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.
