Restoracing launch event

27/2/2019

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
