The current ‘Porsche Championship’ featuring two classes for the Porsche Boxster 3.2S and the Porsche 924, was created in 2010, as a logical development of what was previously the ‘Porsche 924 Championship’. The Porsche 924 Championship was one of the most successful one make championships in the UK for nearly two decades, with regular grid sizes of 40+ cars at its peak, racing at some of the most prestigious circuits in the UK.
Created by the inimitable Jeff May in 1991, the running of the Championship was later successfully taken over by Ernie Cheetham, whose race car preparation business, Lodge Sports, probably worked on every 924 ever raced in the UK at one time or another!
In order to secure the long term future of the Championship, it was decided in 2009 to introduce the Race Spec Boxster class to run alongside the classic 924 for 2010, and then the Production Spec Boxster Class was added in 2012, providing progression opportunities for drivers, whilst maintaining the long held ethos of ‘cost effective Porsche racing’.
Over the years, numerous drivers who cut their racing teeth in the Porsche 924 Championship went on to further success in other national and international Championships, and it continues to be a great proving ground for aspirational race drivers.
