On Sunday 2 September, the final races of the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition took place at Brands Hatch.
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.
Porsche Centre Swindon’s driver, Technician Ollie Coles, returned in our Boxster which is liveries in a Coca-Cola design to honour our chairman’s similarly clad 1970s race car.
The Restoracing Boxsters formed their own grid for the first time in the race series, with Ollie starting in third place after qualifying. Through patience and determination, Ollie secured two victories on the day for the Porsche Centre Swindon team, creating a fantastic end to the racing element of the competition.

* 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.
