Default Moving home after 10 yrs in US

Just found this forum

lived in US for 10 years but moving home later this year to Cambridge/Suffolk border area

bringing my 997.2 C2S with me


now that I've found this uk forum, here's some questions I have:

1) what the best UK Porsche club - assume PCGB?

2) I'm a Porsche Club of America track instructor in US and plan to do some track days when get back to the UK (probably in a caterham). Before I left 10 years ago, Book-a-Track were just taking off ----- who would you recommend nowadays for porsche / non-porsche track days? How much we looking' at nowadays? any discounts for instructors?

3) Any specialist porsche insurance companies you would recommend / stay away from?

4) Is window tinting allowed in UK?

5) Im planning on using shipmycar.co.uk to transport porsche, tow vehicle and trailer back to use and then get road legs/mot etc ---- any body used these guys?


All advice appreciated …

Cheers
Steve

Hi Steve , i can answer some of these Qs

PCGB is fine and organizes good track days all over the country , average cost around
£200 , open pit lane . I would imagine new instructors desirable .
Javelin are a good non Porsche organizer with a full calender . Also Circuit Days

Porsche Centre Cambridge is one of the better OPCs and has a great relationship with the club , special events & servicing discounts etc

I use Classicline insurance for old and modern and they include trackday cover

Plenty of cars with window tinting

Anything else ?

Hi Steve,

About the window tinting, maybe this link can help you: https://www.gov.uk/tinted-vehicle-window-rules

I had never heard from these guys. I used last year Consolidated car shipping to ship two classic cars and some other stuff. I am very happy with them. http://www.consolidatedcarshipping.com/advantages/

HI Steve
Legally in the UK you can only tint the rear 3 windows, basically anything behind the B pillar rewards is legal. Any tint on the front door glass is illegal and could void your insurance!
