Protyre Exeter played host to the Porsche Owners Club for a Pirelli PPC evening on the 10th April 2019. On a sunny spring evening, a superb collection of stunning and meticulously-maintained Porsches made their way to the heart of the West Country, for a very special evening.

Pirelli Performance Centres are a group of elite, high-performance tyre dealerships offering unrivalled levels of expertise when it comes to the recommendation, fitting and balancing of high-performance tyres. A service that's complemented by first-class customer care and attention to detail. Protyre Exeter is one of 39 Pirelli Performance Centres, more than any other Tyre Retailer in the UK.

Ian Colvin from our Protyre Tavistock branch (a Platinum PPC) gave the guests a presentation about what it takes to be a Platinum Pirelli Performance Centre and the standards required to achieve this accolade.

Technical expertise from Pirelli and Protyre technicians

Pirelli’s Daniel Nyhan gave a great presentation on the technology that goes into tyres and why OE tyre specifications make such a difference to the performance of a Porsche.

Our technician Dale Johns, who works at our Protyre Exeter garage and has also been a tyre fitter for our Motorsport division at a number of race championships, did a talk about the importance of wheel alignment and gave a demo of our high-spec alignment machine.

Burger Time

The evening was topped off with a Burger Supper supplied by local caterer Nina’s Burger Box. With a choice of freshly prepared burgers, guests were well-looked after and the Porsche drivers went home fed, happy and more knowledgeable on tyres for their treasured vehicles.
