More than 50 Porsche owners from the Lancashire Section of the Porsche Club GB took part in an 83 mile Lancashire drive on Sunday 11 August, raising money for Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
The Red Rose Run started from Porsche Centre Preston and after breakfast and registration, drivers were waved off at 9.30am by Preston City Council Mayor, David Borrow.
Porsche owners from throughout Lancashire, Yorkshire and as far away as Northamptonshire took part. So far, the annual events have raised a combined total of over £20,000 for local charities.
Porsche Club GB, Lancashire Region, David Baker said, “The Red Rose Run has become a firm favourite in our club diary. It’s the perfect blend of friendship, beautiful scenery and iconic motoring. We were especially grateful that the Mayor agreed to attend and set us off and to Porsche Centre Preston for hosting our members before the journey began. This year’s event is especially important because our beneficiary, Rosemere Cancer Foundation, has assisted several Porsche Club GB members and their families over the years.”
The route offered a scenic drive through Preston and the Ribble Valley, finishing at the Classic Car Show at Stonyhurst College.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
