On Sunday 2 September, the final races of the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition took place at Brands Hatch.
Stephen Brown, the Porsche Classic Manager at Porsche Classic Life in Bicester Heritage, had the honours of driving our restored Boxster, which was designed with Fletcher Aviation livery, as used on the 1954 Porsche 550/1500 RS Spyder "Carrera Panamericana".
The conclusion of the Classic Restoracing Competition races coincided with the Festival of Porsche, which attracted over 6,000 visitors.
Attendees flocked to see the display of Porsche cars, parade laps and of course, the Restoracing Competition. The Restoracing stand was with bespoke backdrops showcasing each Boxster’s transformation from road car to race car.
The Restoracing Boxsters formed their own grid for the first time in the race series, and our driver Stephen raced very well on the day, placing 7th overall in the race.
The competition has been an exciting project for the whole team at Porsche Centre Cardiff as everyone has pulled together to help achieve the victory.

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
