Always fancied doing a track day Paul and Porsche insurance allow you two track days per annum at no extra charge. Obviously these are available at Silverstone as a first port of call. I'd love to be taught how to 'drift' the car properly - great fun!

Never really felt inclined to do 'drag strips' tbh although I did a few when I had the FZ750 years ago which was fun.

The Nurburgring appeals actually and I know Germany quite well so that would be a good trip I reckon. Not sure how skint I am yet though lol.

Porsche's purpose built centre at Silverstone is a great way to get to know your Car (and Abilities) Ice Hill, Kick Plate, Drifting Section as well as a Road track with Adverse Camber bit costly @ 550 for half a Day's tuition in a Turbo thou

No regrets I have to say, although after some 'playing' on Wednesday I've pulled a muscle slightly in my right shoulder lol. Gotta love that power and torque though!!

Fair play to you all the same, I think you've made a great move going straight in for the Turbo, like I said it look's fantastic.

Of course Gav. Can't believe you trust my driving though.........

You too Alan, although you wouldn't fit in the back I'm afraid and that's not a reflection on your height and build btw! The rear seats and leg room are 'token' if you know what I mean.
