On Saturday 8 September, Porsche Centre Reading will once again sponsor and compete in the Royal Berks Charity Soapbox Challenge - a fantastic family event near our Centre.
The Soapbox Challenge is now in its second year and is a fundraiser for the Royal Berkshire Charity. Contestants are required to design, build and race imaginative soapboxes in two timed runs down the course at the prestigious Englefield Park. Our entry, Mission S was built by a team of Porsche mechanics from Porsche Centre Reading and Porsche Cars Great Britain, and will once again be piloted by our Vehicle Technician, Peter Keen.
The Royal Berkshire Charity raises money for the Royal Berkshire Hospital, helping them to purchase the most up-to-date equipment, improve staff training and support rebuilding and refurbishment projects - making a difference in care to patients, their visitors and staff.
We would be delighted for you to join and support our team on the day. Visit the Royal Berkshire Charity website to discover more about this event.
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. 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. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy 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. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
