Last month, our Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship team spent the day at Oulton Park to test our 986 Boxster ahead of the 2019 race season.
After a questionable start weather-wise, the sun soon came out to bring us a nice hot day and a very grippy track.
Mike Thompson spent the morning on the track, getting himself comfortable with car's handling and learning more with every session.
In the afternoon, Josh was back out on track for the first time since the 2018 event at Brands Hatch, which brought back some great memories of winning overall last year. This was the first time Josh had driven the car with the new JRZ suspension which gave a very different feel - plenty of grip gave him a lot more confidence going into the corners.
The team is now focusing on ensuring the car is on top form ahead of Mike's first race at Donington Park on 20 April.
* 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.
