On the weekend of 27 July the Porsche Centre Glasgow Restoracing Team headed to Snetterton 300 race circuit to take part in the penultimate round of the Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship.
Our driver, Mark Duncan, travelled down on Thursday night in preparation for a full day of testing on Friday. The rest of the team joined him on Friday night and we all attended race day on the Saturday.
Qualifying didn’t go as planned - we experienced heavy rain which made the windscreen was steam up so we only managed to drive three laps. We brought the car back in and made sure we sorted the issue for Race 1.
We weren’t fastest on the track over the two races as this was Mark’s first time racing in the rain, but we’re really proud of how well he drove. This was also the first race this season that we managed to keep the car in one piece, so for us that was a win!
We’re looking forward to the last race of the season which takes place on 31 August at Oulton Park.
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. 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. 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.
