2017 marks 40 years since the Porsche 928 made its debut. In celebration of this significant anniversary, PCGB and the four UK Porsche Classic Partner Centres – Glasgow, Hatfield, Leeds and Swindon – will be entering a specially-prepared 928 in the 2017 season of the HSCC 1970’s Roadsport Championship. The car will be driven in every race by British Le Mans winner Richard Attwood and each of the Porsche Classic Partner Centres will take it in turns to be the pit crew and technical support.
The 928 has been stripped, re-conditioned and re-sprayed and the engine has been overhauled to return it to its pristine condition. In recognition of the anniversary of the 928, the car is racing with number 40.
On 20 May the classic car made its debut at Silverstone supported by the expertise of Technicians from Porsche Centre Swindon. Attwood qualified in ninth place out of an entry of 35 cars, and, in a wet race, finished third overall and first in class.

For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy 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. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
