Two Essex charities have been given huge donations thanks to this year’s Colchester Half Marathon. The event was held on 25 March and attracted a record entry with 4,000 runners leaving the start line for the 13.1 mile race around the town.
For the first time, Porsche Centre Colchester offered their support by supplying the pace car and the timing clock. Richard Eniffer, Sales Manager, appropriately chose a 918 Spyder for the pace car and a Panamera E-Hybrid for the clock, allowing competitors and the massive supporting crowds to see the diversity of our model range.
A massive £65,000 was raised which will be shared between the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust and MS-UK.
Plans are already underway for the 2019 race and we very much look forward to being part of this event again next year.

* 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.
