On 3 August Porsche Centre Leicester hosted 20 guests for a rural excursion, including a drive through the North Leicestershire countryside and a round of clay pigeon shooting.
Arriving at the Centre from 12.30pm, guests were presented with a gift pack including an assortment of Porsche merchandise and sweets, along with a map and route directions for the journey ahead.
Guests paired up and were allocated a new car from the Porsche model range, including a 718 Boxster S, 718 Cayman GTS and Cayenne E3, then set out in convoy. The route took them from the city to country, passing through the scenic villages of Burton-on-the-Wolds and Woodhouse Eaves, reaching our Wymeswold destination at 2.00pm.
Upon arrival at Lakeside Sporting Ltd. in Wymeswold, guest were welcomed with light refreshments before the safety briefing began. Following initial introductory warm up shoots, challenges were presented to the guests to test their handling, precision and reaction time skills, all key attributes of the Porsche model range. Their performances were measured by the instructors and prizes were awarded from Porsche Driver's Selection to the various winners.
Following the activity, everyone was invited to indulge in a hearty barbeque and refreshments whilst guests were able to socialise and network.
The day concluded with a drive back to the Centre where the demonstrator vehicles were returned and the guests departed. The day was a great success and gave guests an opportunity to experience the performance ability of the Porsche model range.
* 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.
