Porsche Centre Edinburgh was delighted to sponsor the Queensferry RNLI station as part of the 2019 RNLI 911 Challenge. This challenge saw Belinda and James Richardson drive anti-clockwise around the whole of Scotland to visit all 77 RNLI Lifeboat Stations in just 19 days.
The purpose of the challenge is to raise awareness of the RNLI, a unique organization run by volunteers whose sole purpose is to ‘save lives at sea’. Companies and individuals were asked to sponsor parts of the drive to the Scottish Lifeboat Stations, raising funds to purchase a ‘D’ Class Lifeboat (or equivalent) by 2024.
On Wednesday 4 September, Belinda and James Richardson were joined by Paul Farrell, Centre Principal of Porsche Centre Edinburgh, to present chief helm Dave and his crew with a commemorative plaque. The plaque is now on display on the window sill overlooking the Forth Bridge.
Donald Hossack, Porsche Club Great Britain (R2 Scotland) organiser, and several other Porsche Club Members have also shown their support to this cause.
Phil Hyke (Porsche-trained Technician at Porsche Centre Edinburgh) also joined them for a ‘Pit-Stop’ session where he carried out a full diagnostics check on ‘Splash’ (Belinda and James' treasured 911), topping up the oil and checking the tyres and brake pads in order to ensure it was ready for the remaining week of their challenge.

*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. 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.
