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, 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.
