Last month, the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition 2018 was brought to a close by an award ceremony and dinner held at the stunning Pennyhill Park in Bagshot Surrey.
Every Porche Centre from across the network that competeted in the Restoracing Competition were in attendance together with their approved repairers to mark the end of the racing season celebrating 20 years of the Porsche Boxster. We are absolutely delighted to announce that we were awarded the 'Fans Choice Award' for the paint effect.
The Porsche Centre Wolverhampton race race team were joined by Steve Shore of Shorade Bodycentre whose Senior Paint Technician Greg Webb was responsible for recreating the 'Pink Pig'. The design was taken from the 917/20 Coupé 1971 Le Mans entry designed by Porsche designer Anatole Lapine displaying butchers cuts of meat hence the famous nickname.
Simon Priest Centre Principal commented, 'It has been an absolute honour to be involved in such a prestigous event over the last few months. All of the team have been totally dedicated and commited to the Restoracing Competition and I would like to offer a very big thank you to all involved including the customers that also joined us to offer their support. We are very much looking forward to the 2019 season.'
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. 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. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel 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. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
