    Cayman GT4 in Norwich to promote road safety for Norfolk Police

       (0 reviews)
      Title: Cayman GT4 in Norwich to promote road safety for Norfolk Police

    A Cayman GT4 has been donated to the Norfolk Police force by the Lind Trust, a charity which supports the development of young people in Norwich and Norfolk. According to research, young drivers are disproportionately represented in fatal and serious collision statistics with 61 young drivers having lost their lives and 504 having suffered serious injury in Norfolk over the past five years.

     

     

    This GT4 will be used by police at events such as the Royal Norfolk Show and taken to areas where car enthusiasts gather as well as being taken to schools and colleges around the county to engage with young people. The campaign was launched at Norwich Cathedral just a couple of days after the deaths of three teenagers, named locally as Dominic O’Neill, Kyle Warren and Billy Hines, following a crash at Pulham Market on Wednesday night.

     

    Simon Bailey, Norfolk’s chief constable, said the families of all three involved in the tragedy were spoken to before going ahead with the launch.

    He said: “If they hadn’t given their consent it (the launch) would’ve been deferred out of respect.

    “They do support what we’re trying to do and I’m very grateful that they are.”

    Mr Bailey said the campaign came about after he approached city entrepreneur Graham Dacre last year because he was “really concerned” about the number of young drivers being killed and seriously injured.

     

    He said: “Engagement and education are vital elements of the work on road safety undertaken by roads policing officers.

    “We hope the car will act as a conversation starter, which gives us the opportunity to engage with people, but more importantly those hard to reach groups like young drivers, and offer practical advice as well as describing what can happen when things go wrong.”

     

    Mr Dacre said he thought it was a “great project” and that the Porsche was a tool that would really engage with young people.

  • What engine mounts are you on?

    Got my annual service done today and was told the engine mounts will need replacing soon.     What engine mounts are recommended?  Thanks.

    Aftermarket Sat Nav and head unit

    Hi,   Just bought my first Porsche, Cayman S Gen 1.   As the car does not have a sat nav fitted I am looking to fit an aftermarket unit, radio/sat nav/blue tooth. May be a dumb question but does the Cayman have a single or double DIN arrangement, also appreciate recommendations on what unit to go for.   Cheers   Steve

    Recommendations for the best tyres - 2014 Cayman 981

    Hi guys,   Can somebody please recommend the best tyres for my 2014 Cayman 981...?  Year round road usage only, and no track days.   I've done a search on here, and also on various other websites, but all I have done is confuse myself more than when I started!   One issue seems to be not all tyres are available in both sizes, and I would like to keep them all the same.   Tyre sizes are front 235/40 ZR19 and rear 265/40 ZR19.     I currently have Pirelli P

    Garage Conversion Project

    I thought I'd record the project I've embarked upon since moving house back in June.  It's relevant, it's going to be home to a Porsche.     The garage I have bought, came with a house included which was handy.  Its 90's block built double garage with attic truss roof and measures 6.5m x 6.5m.     After a few discussions with my dad about the possibilities available and what I wanted to achieve, I decided on the following;    - Convert the upstairs roof space to off

  • Porsche Myths Busted: Car Insurance & N-rated Tyres

    There will be many eyes rolling at the title I'm sure and much has been written on many an internet forum on the topic of N-rated tyres.   But I'm not here to enter the murky depths of whether an N-rated tyre has a different rubber compound to it's non-rated equivalent, nor am I going to make any claims as to the performance differences and whether by not using N-rated tyres you will find yourself in a ditch one day.     Today, I'm focussing on something more specific, and answering th
