On 17 and 18 June, Porsche Centre Leeds and the infamous 1970 24 Hours Le Mans winner Richard Attwood will be racing in the 70’s Road Sport Race (Wolds Trophy) Historic Race at Cadwell Park.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 928 the four UK Porsche Classic Partner Centres will be entering a 1978 928 in the 2017 season of the HSCC 70’s Roadsport Championship.
This weekend gives Porsche Centre Leeds the opportunity to assist with the mechanical management and technical support of the Porsche 928. The Classic Team, Andy, Paul and Stacey will be in the pits to ensure that 928 is performing to an optimum level, and of course to Richard Attwood’s preference.
Stacey Chandler, Classic Technician at Porsche Centre Leeds commented: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the Classic Team at Porsche Centre Leeds to showcase our expertise. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to work with the legendary British motor racing driver Richard Attwood and alongside the brilliant team of technicians. Attwood delivered a sterling performance in the first round of the HSCC 70’s Roadsport Championship, qualifying in ninth place out of an entry of 35 cars, and, in a wet race, finished third overall and first in class. We just hope this weekend’s weather provides the perfect racing conditions for us to deliver a winning performance and the perfect set up for the Historic Gold Cup at Oulton Park on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 August.”
