The team from Porsche Centre Cambridge travelled to Donington over the Easter weekend to take on the first Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship race of the 2019 season.
Our driver for the day was Workshop Controller James Cannon, who also drove for us during the 2018 season. James demonstrated excellent racing skills as he moved from ninth place on the starting grid to finish seventh in Race 1 and fifth in Race 2.
The second round took place at Brands Hatch and our driver, Paul Blakesley from Lancaster Body Centre, was racing for the first time - it turned out to be ‘Super Saturday’ for him. He started ninth on the grid and finished eigth in Race 1, but Race 2 was a different story altogether. Extreme weather conditions with heavy downpours caused mayhem on the track with a number of cars failing to finish, but our amazing Boxster stuck to the tarmac, taking Paul to second place for a podium place.
Thanks to our pit crew teams from Porsche Centre Cambridge and Porsche Centre East London who worked tirelessly at both meetings to keep the car safe and on the track.
We are all looking forward to the next race which is at Brands Hatch on 7 July, where Paul will take the wheel of our Boxster (986) once again.

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.
