AW Repair Group was once again delighted to be main sponsor for Porsche Club GB Track Day for the 5th year running.
May sees the return of the eager Porsche owners to the prestigious track day held at Blyton Park Driving Centre, where however confident you are, you can enjoy a day full of high-speed laps on the track with or without an instructor.
With the drivers briefing at 8:30am it was an early start, however all drivers donned their racing shoes, helmets and overalls ready to head to the starting line, despite the scorching temperatures.
Thirty-five cars attended the event with drivers each offered three 15 minute sessions in the morning and only one ending up on the grass after a spin. Everyone broke for lunch, opting to sit outside to enjoy the unusual temperatures that hit 27 degrees (previous years have been extremely wet!), chatting about the circuit, their favourite corners and enjoying a bite to eat.
The afternoon saw an open pit lane using the outer circuit in Blyton, drivers took full advantage of this and pushed their pride and joy to the limit, many hitting over 100mph on the straights!
There was competition between drivers, who were thoroughly enjoying the day, however it was all in good fun with laughter when back in for a cooling off.
Blyton Park Director Richard Usher commented, “The days with Porsche Club GB have become a regular fixture of our calendar and we are delighted that the weather was so benign and that all participants had a safe and successful day. AW have been stalwart supporters of these days and we thank them for their continued involvement.”
AW was pleased to be represented this year by both Jade Johnson and new events assistant Alice Houldsworth, who is normally part of the AW First Response Team. A glorious day for her first AW event and looking forward to next year’s Porsche Track Day already!
