. From the children’s bedroom wall to the roads – Paul Casey’s passion for motor racing goes a long, long way back. “I’ve basically always loved sports cars. When I was a kid, I had a poster of the

“I’ll be going for the pin on the 17th. At tournaments where there’s cars I don’t like quite so much as hole-in-one prizes, I always promise to give them to my caddy. It’s definitely not something I’ll be doing this time around,” laughs Casey, who grew up near to the famous Brands Hatch race circuit and who was given the motorsport bug from an early age. “I love racing. But I’ll never become a racing driver now – even though I dreamt about it for a long time.”
Now he is dreaming of owning the whole range of 911 GT3 models at some stage. “The

The consumption and CO2 emission values were determined in accordance with the new Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP). The NEDC values derived from this should continue to be specified for the time being. These values cannot be compared to the values determined in accordance with the NEDC measuring procedure used up to now.

^ The published electricity consumption (kWh per 100 km), charging times (hours/minutes) and kilometre (km) range are estimates determined in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) – see www.porsche.com/wltp. The WLTP is the test procedure used in the European Union and does not apply in Australia, where the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) remains the appropriate test standard under ADR 81/02. Actual figures will vary as they are dependent on many factors including driving style, road and traffic conditions, weather conditions, a vehicle’s features, equipment, accessories, condition, load and use. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics can also affect the electricity consumption and performance values of a car. The published charging times are estimated using the vehicle’s charging equipment and European charging facilities, with the battery temperature under optimum conditions and the vehicle having an initial charge status of 5%. CO2 emissions can also be generated at the power source when vehicles are being charged, unless 100% renewable energy is used. As Australian models have not been tested in accordance with the NEDC procedure, the published figures do not apply in Australia and must not be relied upon in making a decision as to whether to purchase a vehicle.
