Surprised

I'm pretty sure I recognise that car and driver as the one that attends the Porschefreunde event at Dinslaken every year. It wasn't a 'daily driver' as such but was well used and probably one of the highest km cars in Europe.

Just an ordinary Porsche out for a drive .......... preparing to park in a field with a couple of thousand others.

Can someone explain to me how it works in this country with the above scenario when towing a 911 on a trailer and insurance?
