Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship 2019

After an amazing three rounds in 2018, and due to popular demand, we are pleased to confirm that the Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship will return in 2019.

The first season has undoubtedly been a learning curve for the Porsche Centre and Bodyshop teams, let alone the drivers. In 2019 these teams, and new teams who can apply now, can participate in a new championship series.

Please keep an eye out on this page for more information about the Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship 2019.

What is the Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition?

The Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition 2018 celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the Porsche Boxster, a car that fundamentally changed the Porsche model line-up.

Porsche Centres were challenged to not only restore, but race a 986 Boxster S.

Each car had to be finished in a racing livery inspired by cars from Porsche racing history and was piloted by an amateur driver from the Centre or Body Repairer in a three-round Restoracing Championship on the iconic Brands Hatch and Silverstone circuits.

Racing to the finish

Each Centre's car was judged on various elements of their restoration including mechanical, body and paint preparation. However, this year, the challenge was not just to restore the car, but to prepare it (and a driver) to take to the track in a fully liveried state.

Centres competed in a dedicated three round championship, racing on the iconic circuits of Brands Hatch and Silverstone.

About the Boxster, type 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.
