Well let's be honest how many people have been towed 60miles at speed of 80mph .....?
Not many i would assume.

I just want to say a big thank you to stu and the boys for putting up with that small yellow thing stuck to the back of the disco.
And as alot of you already know we broke down 27miles away from mine. The disco was on it's last legs.

And whats the moral of the story...........

Get fudging Breakdown Cover

I think breakdown cover is a must...more so when you do trackdays.

If anyone doesn't know, check out what options your bank runs. I pay 16 a month with Barclays and get phone insurance, breakdown (even from home), travel insurance etc etc.
