Plans are being developed for our racing next season and as you may have already heard, we’re talking to the All Dutch Porsche Club regarding a pair of exchange events – they come to the UK for a round and we go to visit them. We can now announce that they already have a booking for the Spa Francorchamps circuit for 18th, 19th and 20th June. There would be a reciprocal event in the UK.
Video above is from one of the club’s events this season – at Assen. Their club were supporting ADAC. Watch driver JP Helsebos who had problems in qualifying but in the race goes from the last row of the grid to – well, just watch…
The cost will be under 1000 euros – which might sound alot but will include 30 minutes of free practice, a 30 minute qualifying session and then a one hour race on both Saturday and Sunday – giving three hours of track time in total. The races include a mandatory pit-stop so cars can be shared with two drivers, which would obviously drop the cost even further.
Now as idyllic as this sounds, we are of course at the mercy of both COVID-19 and whatever happens to customs and border crossing between the UK and continental Europe. But we thought that as this has such great potential you’d like to hear about it asap. These two weekends would form just part of a 5- or 6-round season in 2021. If you are interested in joining us for our trip to Spa, please contact Philip to let us know.
A track day to provide an opportunity to thanks family, friends and sponsors – as well as giving potential new drivers an opportunity to try one of our cars – was a tradition of the BRSCC Porsche Championship for many season and we would like to continue that tradition – although our regular venue of Rockingham is of course no longer available.
Instead, on Monday 5th October 2020 we will be at Silverstone on the GP circuit:
Signing On From: 7.45am
Drivers Briefing: 8:40am
Track Opens: 9am
Lunch Break: 1pm
Track Re-Opens: 2pm
Chequered Flag: 5pm
Price per car is £499 with RMA Trackdays – who allow overtaking on either side and therefore discourage complete novices. There is already one 924 and a pair of Boxsters booked in and we will be sharing a couple of garages so there will be plenty of space. Please get in touch if you’re interested in joining us.
We have no less than five Boxsters already confirmed as entries to this year’s 750MC Birkett Relay at Silverstone on 24th October:
Angus Archer, of sponsors AMS Porsche
Car from sponsors Unique Porsche – driver TBC
Jason Flegg and Jamie Callender
There is therefore a place available for a sixth car to complete two team entries. The car and driver combinations are strong with lots of race experience, so both teams should be very competitive in their class.
These teams are in addition to those we have running based around transaxle Porsches.
