On Saturday 22 September, team members from Porsche Service Centre Brooklands took part in the 2018 London to Brighton Cycle, in support of the British Heart Foundation.
Starting from London, they predominantly cycled along quiet country lanes, passing through Mitcham, Carshalton, Chipstead, Banstead and Haywards Heath, before taking on the challenge of Ditchling Beacon – a mile long climb to the top of the South Downs.
Over 2,500 cyclists of all skill levels accepted the challenge; they tackled steep forest inclines, tricky descents, rocky paths and pumping single tracks. We'd like to congratulate our team on completing the route and thank the Porsche enthusiasts who all made themselves known to us along the cycle journey.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
