The Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition 2019

Restoracing Car

About the Competition

Last year the Porsche Classice Restoracing Competition celebrated 20 years since the Porsche Boxster was originally launched. Along with other participating Centres. Porsche Centre Wilmslow was tasked with sourcing and restoring a 986 Boxster S with a unique racing livery, before competing in a series of races. 

The Porsche Centre Wilmslow team chose to pay homage to the iconic 917 Le Mans wining race car of 1970 by having the Porsche Salzburg design replicated on the Boxster S.

Once fully prepared, all the cars took to the track in a dedicated Restoracing Championship at soem of the UK's most prestigious circuits including Silverstone and Brands Hatch.

Finally, the cars were judged in numerous categories including mechanical restoration, bodywork preparation, marketing activity and the fan's choice. 


Race results

In the 2019 Restoracing Championship, our Boxster S (986) has been expertly driven by two drivers; Alistair Nelson, Parts Manger, and Sam Beckett, Technician.

In April, the Porsche Centre Wilmslow team got off to a flying start at Donnington Circuit. Alistair took to the wheel for the first time, achieving 56 points towards the Restoracing Scoreboard.

In May, Sam drove for the first time in our Boxster S at Brands Hatch GP Circuit, and managed to secure 33 points.

Following a break in the racing calendar, we were back on track at Brands Hatch but this time on the Indy Circuit in early July. Sam got back behind the wheel adding another 45 points to the championship scoreboard.

The penultimate race of the season was at a very wet and windy Snetterton Circuit in July. This made for some extremely challenging track conditions but Sam did a fantastic job gaining a furhter 51 points towards Porsche Centre Wilmslow. 

Final race

The final race

The final race was held at Oulton Park Circuit, Alistair was back behind  the wheel of our Boxster S. The weather looked as though it was going to holdout, however as the cars lined up on the start grid the heavens opened! This made for some action packed racing for the first race, Alistair did a Stirling job keeping the car on the track. The weather cleared up and made for a sunny final race of the championship, Alistair managed to gain the final points of the season.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported is throughout the season, whether that be on social media or joining us track side to cheer Team Wilmslow on. We have thoroughly enjoyed another year of racing.

Well done to some tremendous driving from Alistair Nelson and Sam Beckett as well as our technicians Sam Robinson, Jack Williams, and Sam Beckett for keeping the car on track. Geoff Worth, Paul Markham, Sammie Sexton, Chloe Muddiman for track side support, and finally Amanda Irwin for all the digital coverage of each event.
