Bedfordshire & Cambridgeshire Porsche Club (R24) Event

24/8/2015

Saturday 22 August saw Porsche Centre Cambridge welcome customers to an open morning at the Centre. The day was designed to give guests an insight into the exceptional facilities Porsche Centre Cambridge enjoys. Following a welcome speech by our Aftersales Manager, Franc Mateo, guests moved between four activities during the morning:

Your Car gave owners an opportunity to view their own car on a ramp, alongside one of our experienced Porsche-trained Technicians. Guests were challenged to look around and underneath their vehicles identifying any issues. The Technicians then scored and provided feedback on how efficiently they were able to complete the task.

Faults and PIWIS Diagnostics; Craig Beavis, one of our Gold Standard Technicians, had set up a Boxster on the ramp with 10 faults for members to identify. 

Restoration Corner; at Porsche Centre Cambridge we are particularly proud of our skills in the care and restoration of classic Porsche models. Dan Fisher, our restoration expert, was on hand to detail the progress of our Restoration Competition entry for 2015 and answer questions about the process.

Drive; Neil Mills, Porsche Driving Consultant, was on hand to accompany drivers around the local countryside, and put the cars (and drivers!) through their paces. Two 911s (Type 991) were kept busy all morning, allowing guests to experience the latest technology that the 911 offers.

Following these activities, General Sales Manager Andy Matthews provided a very well-received tour of the Centre. 

Our thanks go out to all Porsche Club GB members who attended, we thoroughly enjoyed welcoming you and very much look forward to seeing you again.
