As the name suggests, Simply Porsche, was simply Porsche with a 60% increase on the previous year and nearly 1600 Porsches descending on the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu on the 3rd June.  
 
With the unexpected increase there were some delays in getting in but from personal experience handled with good humour by everyone allowing plenty of time to view many cars meandering into the arenas. 
It seems a long time ago since we launched our racing car at Hennessey Lifestyle and we all look back at how special the evening was. Since the launch we focused heavily on making sure our car was ready to go at Oulton Park with testing scheduled a week before the race.  
 
Testing did prove its name when we had significant oil issues with a Deep Racing Sump that was faulty resulting in a lot of oil going places it shouldn't! We learned from this and changed the sump for a far better baffled one going forward. 
 
As mentioned in our previous blog post when we came to actually race we had oil starvation issues and this lead to damage to the engine ultimately knocking us out of the race weekend and stopping us in our tracks in the shorterm.  
Our first Cars and Coffee of the year kicked off in style with a fantastic turnout all round. From 944s to GT4s there was a full range of classic to modern Porsches on display. The rain held off and we were lucky enough to have a clear day.  
 
The story of the day is that a customer seeing our Cayman S for the first time decided to buy it there and then! We were delighted for him as the car is truly sensational to drive and with the English weather finally starting to clear up what better time to buy a Porsche! 
 
Porsche Drivers Championship 
 
Round One Oulton Park 
 
We arrived at Oulton Park late thursday evening to a damp and cold circuit. After unloading the car we met with other drivers and discussed testing the next day.  
 
Everyone was in good spirits and it was an incredibly exciting time for us all seeing our racing car in its garage for the first racing weekend. Once all set up we headed back to our accommodation for a duly deserved chinese!!
