At Silverstone Classic on 30 July, the long-awaited judging of the Porsche Classic Restoration Competition 2016 took place.
The 1977 924 Martini Edition, restored by Porsche Centre Silverstone and Elite Motors Bodyshop, our recommended repairer, was the oldest car in the competition and one of the rarest, with only two remaining roadworthy models in the UK. The restoration of our 924 was certainly challenging but with the help of Elite Motors, we were able to find creative solutions to some of the problems, which included 3D printing new fuel line clips.
The car was in perfect working order in plenty of time and it even made a special trip to Le Mans to complete two racing parade laps on 9 July. On the day of final judging, which took place at Silverstone Classic, the public were shown footage of the 924 racing around the track as well as photos of the car throughout the restoration process.
Porsche Centre Silverstone and Elite Motors Bodyshop were delighted to be awarded first prize in the Marketing category, with special mentions in the Technical and Overall winner’s categories.
The whole team are over the moon with this fantastic achievement and we are already looking forward to the next project.
