AW Repair Group was delighted to sponsor the trophies for Porsche Club GB Region 4’s Porsche Pageant amidst the beautiful setting of Belvoir Castle, near Grantham.
Driving up the winding country roads to the castle esplanade, where we found an array of Porsche’s ready for display and the owners eagerly polishing away and making their beauties gleam.
We took our stand next to Porsche Nottingham, with our AW Mobile Solution mobile repair van and Gazebo, which proved a perfect shade from the glorious sunshine which was beating down on us (a first for the British weather to cooperate!)
The gates opened to the public at 11am, to stroll around the grounds tour the castle, which is rather impressive and a must! The public could also browse among all of the Porsches on show ready to be judged.
Overall 53 cars entered the pageant, a very good turn-out for the first year.We even had a fly past by the Dakota, later on the Vulcan and later on again the Red Arrows – so all in all we couldn’t have done much better.
Judged categories; 1st and 2nd Prize for Water-cooled engines (which we sponsored), 1st and 2nd prize for Air-cooled engines, Best car of show and the Best 912.
A massive congratulations to all winners and a massive thank you to Lord Hugo for presenting the prizes on the day.
