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.

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.
