You’d expect him to be more careful. He’s had a few 911s

this happened really close to me, I know the place - always some muppet doing something in the road they shouldnt be. I doubt very much CH would have had to be driving quickly to hit something there. Its such a shame as I am sure I saw a "look what I picked up a year ago" post only a couple of days ago. At least everyone's ok...

Police confirmed speed not a factor. Post above infers the truck driver has been issued with a penalty?

Very unlucky Sad

I know its just a car and he will be insured etc......but...

What happens with trying to source a replacement??

Will he get a special allocation for another GT3 touring?

Or is it back to the bottom of the list?

How does it work with Porsche?

A motoring journo on the world's biggest motoring tv show known to be a Porsche fan and has owned many 911's including a GT3RS 4.0. He'll have a new one for Xmas
