If you look back a bit there are loads of threads on here about insurance. They are worth finding

I had the same issue a few weeks back as Manning had increased their track excess up to 15%

After shopping around I narrowed it down to Footman James with 6 track day’s from Aviva and A Plan , 3 days through Zurich.

Not much difference in premium but had a better service from A Plan and will only do 3 days or so in my Mac

Classic line will not give you any NCB.

Admiral are very price competitive.

Heard good things re: NFU Mutual.

NFU if you don't need track cover otherwise i highly recommend Lockton. I was with Footman and James on my various Porsche GT cars however they no longer cover cars over £150k. Classic line are also very good which narrowly lost out to Lockton for my current Porsche where i need track cover.
NFU probably the best but strictly exclude any track day cover and i also found Footman and James quite exceptional when i was with them.

Footman James seems popular, but after my call this morning i am not sure why i am being told it has to be over 10 years old to get a quote, especially as Rocketreid mentions he was getting quotes not long ago, confused.com if you pardon the pun.

FJ did quote for my 2014 911 after a couple of conversations with they as we have a family classic with them already. They were over £100 more than what we were already paying which was surprising.

Mannings seem good.

I have heard that Admiral are not good with claims . This is in Europe as well as UK. Although they are cheaper by £400 for me

I've found Mannings to be excellent should you need them. I have track day cover included but have no intentions of using it.

Currently with Mannings and just received renewal notice. Despite removing track day insurance cost has risen by nearly £500. Guess I'll be doing some phoning around!

Same, I was with Mannings and very happy with the price and cover. But upon renewal this year the premium increased substantially - there are rumours that there were a few big claims last year. Moved to ClassicLine who were far more reasonable and still cover most trackdays.

Ive been ringing around, still not found anyone who can get remotely close even with the price hike.

So are you using classic line for insurance?

Sorry for any confusion, sticking with Manning, although classic line is the only one i havent tried from the recommended.
