Donington Park Circuit – 9th Jan

First track session this year was at Donington Circuit on a wet, cold, miserable day.

We took along our Copse prepared Cayman R track car, plus one of our 986 Boxster S race cars, to give a few customers who are planning to join us racing this year a chance to get some seat time.

We are running 3 x Boxster race cars this year in a few club series. If you fancy racing this year with us we are offering arrive and drive days, give us a call for details.

If racing isn’t your thing and you just fancy joining us on track, either with your own car or using one of ours, get in touch for dates.

Next track event – Bedford Circuit 23rd Jan

Sunday Scramble – 8th January

Our first outing this year was to the Sunday Scramble which takes place at the Bicester heritage site that houses over 50 specialists on the old Raf base.

Early morning start, meeting at Beaconsfield services with a friend and customer of ours, James, who runs the Redbourn Porsche Group. James was displaying his 992 GT3 (supplied by Ashgood of course). We took along our Ashgood track focused Cayman R and the 964 Turbo S Flachbau. It was a real honour and privilege of be able to display our 964 Turbo S right in the heart of the scramble courtesy of Sports purpose. Having previously done business with James, lou and the team at Sports Purpose it has always been our intention to buy a car through them. Im sure it was the plan by Sports Purpose to position us right next to an absolutely georgeous Signal orange 1969 2.2 S !! Deal done.

Customers, chats, coffees, burgers, more chats, more coffee and it was time to head home.

Next Scramble – Sunday 23rd April 2023.

Silverstone National 9th October

Great day racing on the National circuit at Silverstone with CSCC (Classic & Sportscar Club). Ashgood entered two Boxster race cars which were driven by staff and customers. Qualifying P1 & P6 in class. The Ashgood driven car developed power loss at 14mins into the 40 min race meaning am early and un planned pitstop was done. Car reset and back out with Tom at the wheel, eventually finishing P4 in class. The Blue car driven by two good customers of ours finished P1 in class picking up the first of many trophies for Team Ashgood Racing.

Really was an enjoyably day and we love catching up with existing and potentially new customers at these events. Fancy driving with us next year in either Porsche Club GB, Classic & Sportscar Club or the 750 Motor Club CALM all Porsche Trophy then please contact us at the office.

Well done Team Blue on the win and thanks again to the guys at Copse Automotive for the support, I promise we will get more professional and better for next time.

Porsche PTS (Paint to sample) event at Bicester Heritage

We joined a group of friends and customers this the Porsche PTS (Paint to sample) event at Bicester Heritage this weekend. Usual coffee stop at Oxford services where we joined up with a couple of PTS cars previously supplied by ourselves.

Tom took our very rare Signal yellow 991 RS, believed to be the only 991.1 RS in this colour. Teamed up with Viola Metallic 991.2 RS and Oak Green Metallic 992 Turbo S for the short trip from Oxford Services to Bicester Heritage.

Great event and always good to get out and meet more friends of ours. Speak with Tomand join us on the next run out !!
