The Porsche is apparently one of the genuine 993 GT2s of which I think there were 8 RHDs made.
I certainly wouldn't have the b@&"^&s to put it on track !

When is it? I'm not currently going at all.

What I have done today though is a lot of research on how to polish the exhaust tips and exhaust heat shield. Bought a whole load of professional detailing products and now just need to find the time to wash, wash with polishing soap, use metal polish then metal sealant and see the results.

Its 28/29 April
To do the track time + hospitality is £400 through Ferrari dealers for their clients.
It is a super event. When you are not driving you can look at the challenge racing series and corse clienti cars going round while having fantastic food/drink in the suite (.. at least if it is the same as it was when I went 2 years ago)
Also no issues with noise as it is a race weekend. If you actually want to drive your car (... as well as polish it) this is one to do.

Having said that there is a better one for the Spa Passione event where you drive down, staying at great places and then doing the track time too (£5k though for that one)

Only made EURO185k. Prices are being "corrected" it would appear.

I think £162k is a fair price for a gray 35k km car
I don't think it has fallen far form actual transactions over the last 3 years (i.e. not asking prices) and if so maybe just a bit

Yes, LHD cars in Euros have hardly fallen in price.

'Fortunately' the £ has fallen nearly 20% against the Euro.

At EU/£ of 1.35 it would be £137K!

Whoah, hold on a minute, I think we've discovered THE benefit of Brexit! Only available to owners of left hand drive Ferrari's! LOL

Exactly !
And to complete the picture RHD prices have also fallen in GBP (but mainly at the low mileage top end)

Just back from a 9 day 2000 miles Munich (cars were trucked there we flew) to Bilbao (got boat back) road trip in my Stradale with two mates in 996 GT3's. Over the alps, Modena, Monaco, Provence, Pyrinees.

Absolutely amazing.

We drove most of the time like we had stolen them. Incredible roads, great surfaces, no traffic (we were up at 5.30am most days).

First time I'd done it. I will be doing it every year from now on!

Just do it!

Did you book this through someone or put the trip together yourselves?

Am interested in doing this sort of thing myself.

We put it together ourselves. Was easier than I thought - just time consuming! I was worried we'd miss out on certain passes etc but there are so many in the Alps and South Of France and Pyrinees that you cant do them all and the are all amazing!

Going from Salzburg to the Wörthersee in the south of Austria tomorrow - depending on weather will probably do either Großglockner again or nockalmstrasse - should be fun

Any of you guys at the Ferrari track day Hockenheimring end of June?

Would love to get a passenger lap in a CS to compare to the Scud

If you haven't already tried it, I would skip the Pyrenees in favour of Northern Spain and the Picos de Europa. The roads are generally wider and in better condition and the views are epic.

We found the Pyrenees roads amply wide enough and in great condition and the views were to die for....so can't wait to do Northern Spain and Picos de Europa.

So thanks for the heads-up Baypond.
