On Tuesday 26 February Porsche Centre Bournemouth was delighted to host our launch event to start the Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship 2019.
Over 100 guests enjoyed a spectacular display in the Centre including a 997 GT3 RS, a 996 GT3 RS, a 991 GT3 RS and the 928 race car once raced by former Le Mans winner Richard Attwood. We also had the new Macan on show and, of course, the main attraction for the evening, our Porsche Classic Restoracing Boxster 986.
The highlight of the evening was the highly entertaining Q&A session conducted by Lee Sibley, editor of Total 911 magazine, during which guests had the opportunity to ask our team any questions about Restoracing.
In 2018, the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition required participating Porsche Centres to restore a Boxster S (986), replicate an iconic livery from Porsche racing history, and take part in a series of races.
The Porsche Centre Bournemouth Boxster attained huge success at all the races in the 2018 Competition, and the achievements continued as the Centre was awarded for our marketing efforts.
The Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship 2019 will run for five race weekends between April and August, adding Donington Park, Leicestershire and Oulton Park, Cheshire to last year's hosts Brands Hatch and Silverstone.
The team are extremely excited about getting back out onto the track and working on the Restoracing car for another season.
We would be delighted if our customers joined us at the races, which will be held on the following dates and locations:
20 April - Donington Park, Leicestershire
4 May - Brands Hatch GP, Kent
15 June - Silverstone GP, Northamptonshire
7 July - Brands Hatch Indy, Kent
31 August - Oulton Park International, Cheshire

* 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.
