I'd assume hiring a Porsche in England would be costly?

You assume correctly, especially if you drive it from one end of the country to the other and blow out the mileage limit. OTOH, they are probably still the cheapest miles l'll ever do in a Porker - considering usual depreciation costs.

I've just spent a couple of hours on the Evo triangle - which I managed to turn into a parallelogram in my excitement. Awesome, awesome roads and traffic free for the first time this weekend. I could hear a chopper above so I'm clearing out towards Scotland while the going is good. But really,  a bloke could spend all day here.

And still no rain.  (That won't last). :)

After an overnight stay in Glasgow, I'm now on the Isle of Skye.  More brilliant roads (best yet) and stunning scenery.  Even got a ferry ride.  This joint is a knockout.  But most of all, I can't get over the road surfaces.  Most of the roads are totally smooth. I wish Transport SA would visit sometime.

Epic!

Just a tiny bit over the included miles for the hire, yes?   :)

The car is up on blocks in the hotel carpark for the night, running hard in reverse gear.  :o :p

Make sure you dont sleep in, they might get suspicious when you bring it back with negative miles.
