I cant believe you have a Range Rover and are asking what tow car you should use? I cant think of a car better suited to towing! Put a removable tow bar on it. You wont even know you are towing its that capable and stable.

Because i have been told in no reasonably clear terms that the Range Rover won't be pulling anything :)

Have you had the fault yet where the screens get all scrambled up, or the bottom one glitches and doesn't come on.

Nice choice John also very handy for trackside fires and out of control bbqs

The wife quite liked the idea of a motor home, not sure this is what she was thinking of though.

My plan with David has always been to bring my van full of tools, and if we break it on track, call the RAC, but just appear to have broken down strangely close to the circuit, but just outside.

If you can find one that isn’t a rust bucket then the Nissan Patrol is an incredible car

Had a 2000 model one a couple of years ago, never missed a beat, as comfortable to drive as a brand new car on a long journey, and literally pulled tractors and large plant out of the mud with it! If it wasn’t for all the welding it would have been the perfect car!
