On Saturday 23 March 2019, Porsche Centre Hatfield treated our Service and Parts Teams to a Porsche Experience.
Many of our technicians, service and parts team members start their careers in automotive because at their core they are petrol heads with a real passion for sports cars. Therefore as a reward for their phenomenal performance and dedication to the brand, we challenged them in a series of fun driving experiences and workshops at the prestigious Porsche Experience Centre in Silverstone.
The day consisted of getting behind the wheel of the 911 with one-to-one tuition from a Porsche Driving Consultant to put the 911’s capabilities to test on the Handling Circuit, Straights, Kick Plate, Ice Hill, Low Friction and Off-Road circuits.
We also challenged our staff to a number of driving challenges, pitting them against each other to win a GT Passenger Experience at the end of the day. The challenges included:
The Porsche Experience Centre is situated at the Silverstone Circuit, the home of British motorsport, in the heart of England. Renowned for its state-of-the-art facilities and premium hospitality, the day was a great success with our Service Teams taking home some unforgettable driving experiences. We highly recommend the Porsche Experience Day to all of our customers.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. 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. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel 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. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
