This year's Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Boxster (986), a car that fundamentally shaped the Porsche business and brought a whole new generation of customers to the brand.
Those who have been following our journey on social media will know that the restoration of our Brumos-inspired Boxster racecar is complete, and it has competed in the first two rounds of the competition.
Early May saw our Restoracing team under great pressure to ensure the car was ready for the first round of races at Brands Hatch. On the day, they completed a number of qualifying laps only for the car to experience a catastrophic engine failure in the moments before the race. The team sadly had to return the car to the workshop for repair before the next round.
The race at Silverstone circuit followed on 2 June, with the team successfully completing a number of qualifying laps and two rounds of racing with Centre Principal Richard Grout in the driving seat. We earned valuable points giving us a good platform to build upon in the final round.
Now returned to the Centre, the car will have some improvements made to increase our chances of success at Brands Hatch Indy Circuit on 2 September.
Our 986 Boxster racecar will be showcased at a number of events and motorshows across the region in the coming months, beginning with our Sportscar Together Day at Porsche Centre Leicester this Saturday 9 June, 9am - 5pm.
