The Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship 2019

The Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship 2019

What is the Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship?

In 1997, the first Porsche Boxster was launched, a car that fundamentally changed the Porsche model line-up.

To celebrate the twentieth anniversary in 2018, Porsche Centres across the UK sourced and restored 986 Boxster S models. They also raced them in a dedicated three round championship.

In 2019, the Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship will return with more races than ever.

More information on the different aspects of the Championship can be found below, but you can keep up to date with what’s happening in the competition by visiting porsche.co.uk/restoracing or by signing up to the Porsche Classic Newsletter at porsche.co.uk/classic-newsletter.

Race to the finish

In 2018, the Centres’ cars were judged on various elements of their restoration including mechanical, body and paint preparation.

To make the most of their race-ready cars, in 2019 they can participate in the next round of the Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship.

New participants are also welcome, and we are delighted that some of our Porsche Recommended Repairers have entered their own cars this year.

About the Boxster (986)

The launch of the Boxster 986 in 1997 was a true turning point in the history of Porsche. The introduction of a mid-engined two-seater sports car at a more affordable price meant that Porsche began to reach a whole new generation of owners.

With its 3.2 litre six-cylinder boxer engine the Boxster S represented the first major upgrade to the base model in both styling and engine output.

The Boxster (986) range has retained the fascination of the public over the years thanks to it’s blend of performance, balance and handling.
