On Sunday 2 September, racing legend and Le Mans winner - Richard Attwood - drove our Restoracing Boxster in the final of the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition 2018. The race took place on the iconic Brands Hatch Indy circuit as part of the Festival of Porsche, celebrating 70 Years of Porsche.
As part of the winning team at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970, we were honoured to have such an eminent motorsport ambassador join Porsche Centre Leicester for the day and to endorse our Restoracing entry. The car performed well, given the setback experienced during our Restoracing journey, finishing mid-grid overall. Impressed by the restoration workmanship and livery design of the car, Richard went on to sign the bumper and an internal component, making the car an iconic asset for our Centre.
The Festival of Porsche was a fantastic day of celebration for the brand. Porsche fans nationwide travelled down to the renowned South East racetrack to celebrate this year's milestone anniversary, capturing memories to inspire generations to come. Prior to the races, all the Restoracing entries were exhibited alongside information packs about each project, enabling visitors to understand the restoration process and challenges teams faced to enter this competition.
