Porsche Centre Guildford was delighted to take part in the annual Shere Hill Climb on Sunday 4 September.
Hill climbs were once the earliest form of motorsport and have re-emerged as a popular event; the Shere Hill Climb is in its fourth year and has already become an annual must-see event for motor fanatics. Held at Staple Lane near Guildford in the Surrey Hills, it showcases the power and grace of some of the classic cars, and challenges the older cars and bikes to simply make it to the top.
The Shere Hill Climb remains dedicated to raising money for local charities and has raised over £41,000 since its inception. With an increase in attendance for 2016, the total amount raised this year is set to be the highest yet.
Once again, Porsche Centre Guildford entered the 968 Club Sport to this year’s event; in far better shape from last year after being crowned the winner of the Porsche Classic Restoration Competition 2016. Porsche Centre Guildford also showcased a variety of classic and current models including the Macan, Cayenne, Cayman GT4 and the new 718 Boxster.
Adam Flint, Centre Principal of Porsche Centre Guildford said; “The event is now a firm favourite in the motor enthusiast’s diary and after last year’s success, we are delighted to be taking part in the Shere Hill Climb. It is fantastic to see the newer models alongside some of the classic Porsche cars, showing how far the brand and technology have progressed over the years, whilst maintaining the iconic Porsche look.”

* 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.
