Porsche Centre East London recently hosted an event for the Porsche Owners Club with six-time Le Mans winner Jacky Ickx.
Jacques Bernard "Jacky" Ickx is a legendary Belgian racing driver who won the 24 Hours of Le Mans six times, achieved eight wins and 25 podium finishes in Formula One, won the Can-Am Championship in 1979 and is a former winner of the Dakar Rally.
The evening consisted of a "Question and Answer" session with Jacky, followed by autograph signing. We also had the actual Porsche 959 that Jacky drove to victory in the Dakar Rally on display. The car was generously loaned by the Porsche Museum for this event - it was the first time the car has ever been displayed in the UK.
*Data determined in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) as required by law. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp . For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy 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. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
