In the 2019 Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship, our Boxster S (986) has been expertly driven by two drivers - Parts Manager Alistair Nelson and Porsche-trained Technician Sam Beckett.
In April, the Porsche Centre Wilmslow Team got off to a flying start at Donington Circuit, when Alistair took to the wheel for the first time achieving 56 points towards the Championship scoreboard.
In May, Sam drove for the first time at Brands Hatch GP Circuit and secured 33 points.
After a short break, we were back on the track in July at Brands Hatch Indy Circuit. Sam was in the driving seat, 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 further 51 points.
The final race day was held at Oulton Park Circuit and Alistair was back behind the wheel of our Boxster S. As the cars lined up on the starting grid the heavens opened, which made for some action-packed racing. Alistair did an amazing job keeping the car on the track. The weather cleared up for a sunny final race of the Championship where Alistair gained 49 points. Overall Porsche Centre Wilmslow came sixth in the 2019 Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship.
We would like to thank everyone who has supported us throughout the season, whether trackside or on social media. We have thoroughly enjoyed another year of racing.
Congratulations to Alistair Nelson and Sam Beckett for their excellent driving, and thanks to our Porsche-trained Technicians Sam Robinson, Jack Williams and Sam Beckett for keeping the car on the track. Thanks also to Geoff Worth, Paul Markham, Sammie Sexton and Chloe Muddiman for their trackside support, and to Amanda Irwin for the digital coverage of each event.
