Running Victory at Brands Hatch!

October 2, 2014, posted in Industry, Manufacturers, Shorade.

The restoration teams at Porsche Centre Sutton Coldfield & Shorade Accident Repair Centre are delighted to announce that following the judging of the Porsche Classic Restoration competition at the Brands Hatch Festival of Porsche we were awarded the overall winners of the Marketing category in this year’s Turbo & Targa Restoration challenge.  It has been fantastic to receive awards from Porsche Cars Great Britain two years running; 2013 winning the overall competition winners award.

It was an absolute pleasure to receive the award from Dr Wolfgang Porsche and the team at Porsche Cars Great Britain on such an iconic event celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Porsche Turbo and all things Porsche. The day was full of celebrations, races, shows, parade laps and displays with a full line up of attractions for enthusiasts, owners and racing legends such as Derek Bell MBE and Richard Attwood.

Porsche Club members also attended a prestigious Gala Dinner celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Porsche Turbo in the Stirling Suite at Brands Hatch with guests of honours including Dr Wolfgang Porsche, Derek Bell MBE and Richard Attwood the evening before the days celebrations at Brands Hatch where Porsche Club members and guests were invited to dine, receive speeches and commence celebrations.

The competition prize includes driving experiences at the Porsche Experience Centre, Silverstone and contribution towards a celebration for the restoration teams who have worked extremely hard over the past few months reviving our 944 Turbo to its former glory.

Thank you to the Porsche Club, Porsche Cars GB and everyone following the 944 Turbo Restoration for all your support and thank you to the Restoration teams at Porsche Centre Sutton Coldfield and Shorade Accident Repair Centre for your dedication to the project.

We hope you have enjoyed our updates covering the restoration throughout the project and have found them interesting and useful.  If you would like to see the completed 944 Turbo Restoration we will be displaying at the NEC Classic Motor Show 14 – 16th November it would be great to see you there!
