For 2020 we changed not only our name but also our regulations to allow ALL Porsche models both new and old. Running 5 rounds in 2021 with one being a European round as part of our link up with The All Dutch Porsche Club Racing.
Our aim is to raise as much money for our charity CALM as possible so all profits are donated to them at the end of each season. From 2019 we are on target for well in excess of £12,000 and this continues to grow. We will also make this the most affordable Porsche racing series in the UK, with the support from the 750 Motor Club we are on track to have the best value track time ever seen in Porsche racing.
Ran as a not-for-profit race series, it was founded by seasoned racers Philip Waters and Ryan Lowry.
See below for the history of how we started:
With motorsport seriously affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, we were lucky to get a race in at all! As it happened we were again invited to share the Brands Hatch GP grid with Bernie’s V8s and managed to field more than twice the number of Porsches as we had the previous year. We then entered three cars in the 6-hour Birkett Relay at Silverstone.
2019 saw us launch as CALM Classic 4Pot Porsche Trophy – a series dedicated to classic 4 cylinder Porsches such as the 924, 944 and 968s. Starting out we initially ran two meetings at Silverstone and Brands Hatch GP, both proved popular and the number of entries exceeded expectations of any first season and enabled us to raise much needed funds for CALM whilst also keeping track time down to a minimum. We also had some teams enter the Birkett 6 Hour relay race on the Silverstone GP Circuit.
2018 saw us with a last minute call up to race with Porsche Club GB, although not organised by us we fielded cars to make an exciting race and the decition was made to go it alone and set up our own series so planning for the 2019 season started.
2016 saw friends Philip Waters & Ryan Lowry get together off circuit for a change and start to get together the start of something fantastic. with 2017 being the 25th anniversary of the Porsche Drivers Association (PDA) which initially fielded Porsche 924s in a one make series before the Boxster’s were introduced. The last weekend in September saw The Great Race come to life! 18 race ready Porsche 924s made the grid for the race and it certainly was spectacular to see the biggest number of 924s seen on a grid since the early 2000’s The race was a massive success and raised a fantastic amount for charity and has become our spring board to where we are today.
