After twelve months of hard work by Porsche Centre Bolton’s classic restoration team, we are delighted to announce that we have been officially crowned as overall winners of the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition 2018.
The winning team received their trophy at the Porsche Classic Restoracing awards dinner held at the Pennyhill Park Hotel on 12 October 2018. The team performed an exceptional restoration and managed to achieve a podium finish in all six races, finishing in first place on more than one occasion.
In addition, we placed in the top three in each of the following award categories: Marketing Activity, Body and Paint Restoration and Mechanical Restoration.
Our driver Josh Morris, supported by Dan Bennett, Dan Jackson and Danny Parker under the watchful eye of project leader Lee Wibberley, have all performed superbly throughout the competition and our Lucky Spark inspired Wally’s Jeans car was reliable, powerful and precise.
We would like to thank everyone for their support, encouragement and well wishes. Porsche Centre Bolton is immensely pleased and proud.
We would like to offer our congratulations to all the other winners and participants, and our thanks to Porsche Cars GB for creating the competition and the Porsche Owners Club for arranging the races as part of their Club Championships.
As Jonathan Mannell from Porsche Cars GB said: ‘Bringing our history to life like this is the perfect way to celebrate 70 years of Porsche sports cars’.
* 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.
