Sunday 6 August 2023 saw the return of the Whitby Rally, our biggest event of the year.
We welcomed the customers to our Centre where we greeted them with some goodie-bags and our head of business, Ross Jameson enlightened everyone in what to expect for the day.
Once everyone was ready for the journey, we started our convoy to Gisborough Hall to meet up with Porsche Centre Newcastle and their customers. Upon arrival, everyone was met with a warm welcome of coffee, tea, cakes and hospitality.
After the refreshment stop, we all convoyed to Sneaton Castle in Whitby, where our colleagues from Porsche Centre Leeds, Sheffield and York joined us for the rest of the day. Displayed throughout the grounds of the castle, there was a variety of Porsche models representing 75 Years of Porsche.
One of our Taycan Demonstrators stood out from the crowd as it was filled with colourful balloons. We held a competition throughout the day for guests to guess the nearest number of balloons, the competition was extremely close and there was even a tie breaker based on how many balloons of each colour.
Sneaton Castle greeted us with welcome drinks, a live performance from a saxophonist as well as a caricaturist who ensured everyone was cheerful throughout the day.
The day concluded with an excellent buffet, followed flavoursome desert which were thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended.
