Thermostat Gasket

For anyone who is having overheating problems, this may be the problem. A faulty gasket like this one means the thermostat doesn't seal properly and some of the coolant avoids the trip round the radiator.

Venturing abroad with your Porsche 928

Taking your car abroad

Each year over 2 million motorists take their cars abroad. Whether you are only making a day trip across the channel to France, driving on business or holidaying overseas,

it is vital that you have full insurance cover before setting out. If not, you could find yourself unprotected and left with an expensive bill if you are involved in an accident or your car is stolen.

Motor insurance cover and Green Cards

The relationship between UK motor insurance cover and Green Cards can be confusing. The following notes clarify the position.

In the countries listed below, the same situation will normally apply. However, some insurers may exclude cover, or there may be practical or legal issues with some of these countries that make it desirable that you contact your insurer before travelling.

Porsche 928 In the lead at Silverstonr! 2006

Just to let you all know how i got on at the last race of the season at Silverstone this weekend. Qualified my best yet in third position on the grid behind two Morgans with not a lot in it as far as times were concerned so thing were looking good for the race. I managed to get the jump on one morgan at the start and tailed the leader for the first lap with him squeezing me out of an overtake at woodcote on th eend of the first lap which resulted in me bumping the rear of his car at 120mph no damage to either car but still scary nonetheless.
