Microlise award nominees enjoy Porsche experience day

Two Gist drivers swapped trucks for the track at Silverstone to celebrate their nominations for a Microlise Driver of the Year Award.


Carl McCabe, based at Gist Hemel, and Sam Rawlings, based in Portbury, enjoyed a day at the Porsche Experience Centre last month in honour of making the top three in their respective categories at this year’s awards.


They enjoyed driving the latest Porsche Cayenne on the off-road course, drove a Porsche Boxster, Cayman and 911 Carrera around the circuit and received instruction from one of the expert Porsche driving consultants.


Carl was judged to be one of the top three drivers in the Short Distance category, while Sam Rawlings made the final trio for the Most Improved award. They will find out if they have won their respective categories at the Microlise VIP Awards Dinner at Coventry Building Society Arena on 17 May.
