Porsche Restoracing Championship Donington Park


On 20 and 21 April the Porsche Centre Bolton team travelled to Donington Park race track for the first race of the 2019 Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship.

Mike Thompson, our Senior Service Advisor, made his debut on the track in our Wallys Jeans inspired Porsche 986. He was feeling a little apprehensive before going out for qualifying, which is only natural and a good contributing factor towards the adrenaline rush when you finally get out there. Mike's first lap out was 1.35.42, before knocking nine seconds off that lap time with a 1.26.302 to qualify 13th. He then went on to come 11th in race one.

In race two Mike was 14th on the start grid, and made up six places from the first race finishing in 8th with a race time of 1.24.07.

We are all so impressed with Mike's determination and efforts, and would like to thank the whole team for all their help and support, as well as all the support we had on the day through our social media channels.

Mike and the rest of the team are looking forward to taking on the next race which is on 4 May at Brands Hatch Grand Prix. Please contact the Centre on 01204 555332 or email info@porschebolton.uk for more information.
