The 2018 Porsche Classic Restoracing Competition celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Boxster (Type 986), a car that fundamentally shaped Porsche and brought a whole new generation of enthusiasts to the brand.
Partnered with our recommended repairer, M&A Coachworks, our task for the competition was to locate and restore a 986 Boxster to compete in a dedicated, three-round Porsche Classic Restoracing Championship organised by Porsche Club Great Britain. Harking back to the 924 Championship of the 1970s, the competition sees Porsche Centres from Great Britain race head-to-head at three of the UK's most iconic circuits.
Porsche Centre Hatfield and M&A Coachworks have chosen to replicate the famous Martini Racing design. Since the early 1970s Porsche Motorsport vehicles have competed under the Martini Racing livery, initially in co-operation with private teams and from 1973, with an official sponsorship contract. To this day, the popular design can be seen on numerous Porsche race cars and merchandise.

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.
