Sunday 3 June 2018 saw Porsche Centre Wolverhampton's entry, the 'Pink Pig' 996 Boxster, take part in the second round of the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition 2018, held at Silverstone.
Driver and Porsche-trained Technician, Will Heslop, took part in two races, finishing second and third. Unfortunately during the first race the Boxster had an 'encounter' on the track with one of the other competitors, causing some cosmetic damage to the car, however this was not enough to stop the Boxster from completing the Silverstone round.
Will was supported by many of his fellow team members and their partners and the day was made extra special by a number of Porsche Centre Wolverhampton customers coming along to offer their support.
The Boxster is now at our bodyshop having panels replaced and painted, ready for the next race to be held at Brands Hatch on Sunday 2 September 2018.
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. 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. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. 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.
