Saturday 20 April saw Porsche Centre Bournemouth start the second season of the Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship at Donington Park.
Our driver Ben preformed brilliantly in qualifying and was able to out qualify the pack for both races for the day. With a few hours between qualifying and race one, the team had the chance to check over the car and make some changes to improve the race pace.
The car was now ready for the first race of the season. Ben again drove an almost perfect race to be the first to see the chequered flag. The other teams were preforming to an extremely high standard though, so this season will definitely be a challenge.
Race two began much the same as race one, with Ben leading from the front before slowly edging ahead to obtain a healthy lead. Then, the safety car was deployed due to an accident in the backfield. Ben was great at backing up the pack and making a quick run to the first corner. He extended his lead once again to eventually take the victory.
A grand slam for the pole position in both races with fastest laps and two victories.
Needless to say everyone was happy to be back in front and scoring points. We currently lead the Championship and have some work to do on the car for the next round at Brands Hatch on the Saturday 4 May.

* 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.
