Track day towing?
I plan on doing my track days, this year most importantly track days more than 2 hours away from my local track. As you can see from my sig line I also have an 04 Porsche Cayenne S to be used as a tow vehicle. Ideally I would get an enclosed trailer but that will not work because
A. It would mean I would have no funds for track days if I buy one
B. I have zero room at my house to store it, we already have 5 cars parked at my house the neighbors would kill me if I bought a trailer too.
So my thought is that I can rent a U-Haul car trailer for one or two days at a time, only $110 for two days, it's an open trailer though. The tracks I plan on going to are two and three hours away but I would also like to go as far as a 10 hour drive to get to some world class tracks.
Would you do this or is there a better way? My main reason for wanting to trailer is incase something breaks and so I have room to carry tools etc in my SUV that I wouldn't in the lotus, saving the Lotus mileage is also a concern but is very minimal. The car may be parked outside at night on the trailer if I get a hotel room but I don't think that is a concern either because I take the car on trips and park it outside at night at hotels before.
The last option is for me to buy a flatbed trailer but at $1,000 for a decent one I can rent one ten times before breaking even and I only plan to trailer 3-4 times max this track season.
