Porsche Centre Bolton is delighted to announce Josh Morris as our driver for the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition. Josh has been part of the Porsche Centre Bolton team for two years and has recently completed his Parts Operations Apprenticeship. Josh was invited to the Porsche Experience Centre at Silverstone for the assessment with three other team members: Lee Wibberley, Jason Cavanagh and Mike Thompson.
All four were assessed on the Handling Circuit, Kick Plate and Ice Hill and were independently scored, with Josh coming out on top. Steve Underwood, Driver Assessor and Consultant commented “Josh demonstrated a natural ability with his overall car control, balancing the vehicle throughout the morning with all corners and both handling circuits in some pretty adverse weather conditions”.
Josh was delighted and said “I’m very grateful for this opportunity and I’m excited to be representing Porsche Centre Bolton in 2018 as the driver of our 986 Boxster S Restoracing car. I feel we have a great team at the Centre and it’s a pleasure to be considered to be part of this team.”
Adam Calvert, Parts Team Leader commended Josh, “I am very pleased for Josh as I know this means a great deal to him. I feel that we have a winning team in place that will achieve great things.”

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
