On Sunday 2 September, the final race of the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition took place at Brands Hatch as part of the Festival of Porsche.
When qualifying got underway, we were delighted when our driver Ben McDoughlin drove the fastest lap, giving him pole position for the final races later that day.
In between races, the team enjoyed the Festival of Porsche in the Kent sunshine. A dazzling array of Porsche cars, including 356 models and a Le Mans 919 winner, raced around the tracks. Porsche racing legends Magnus Walker, Derek Bell, Richard Attwood and Nick Tandy were on hand to share their stories with like-minded Porsche enthusiasts.
In the first race, Ben began a little too keenly, spinning the wheels which took him from first to third place. He quickly recovered and then led the pack for the rest of the race, even lapping other Restoracing Boxsters. Ben took the chequered flag in another victory for Porsche Centre Bournemouth with a 32.689 second lead.
The second race began perfectly and Ben pulled away from the chasing pack, until he was once again lapping other competitors. It was incredible to see our car perform so well - a real testament to our team of Porsche-trained Technicians. Once again Ben took the chequered flag with a 17.356 second lead, meaning Porsche Centre Bournemouth had won six out of six races!
We are rightly proud of the entire Porsche Centre Bournemouth team including Tom Sage, Scott Gardner, Jack Ward, Michael Gillespie, Evie Fox, Laura Taylor and, of course, our expert driver, Ben McLoughlin.
