On Thursday 26 July, in celebration of the extended red hot summer we have been experiencing, members of Bolton Lostock Golf Club, Porsche Centre Bolton's new sponsorship partner, joined Centre Principal Steve Webb for a summer ride and drive event.
The convoy of six gleaming Porsche models, including the new Porsche 911 GTS in British Racing Green, a new Cayenne S, 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman, Macan 2.0 and a Panamera V6 3.0 in Volcano Grey, were all fuelled, “tour” programmed and ready for their prospective drivers for the day.
At 10am the team headed towards Hebden Bridge, where after a short stop everyone was encouraged to swap cars. Following the swap they all headed in the direction of Clitheroe, along twisting ‘A’ roads and magnificent surrounding countryside.
Guests stopped for a spot of lunch at the beautiful and awarding winning Inn at Whitewell where the views from the Orangery were stunning and the food was fantastic.
After a hearty lunch, it was time to swap over cars again and meander through the equally beautiful Trough of Bowland towards Lancaster, offering both great driving roads as well as more fabulous views of Lancashire’s green and pleasant countryside, which provided the perfect setting to showcase the abilities of the current Porsche range.
The final stretch of the journey came after the final swap at Lancaster, then it was time to head back to Bolton, with a little motorway section to finish the day off nicely.
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. 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. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy 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. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
