    All Porsche cars come with a tow hook, so please install yours in the front of your car for the July DE. In order to facilitate quick removal of stalled cars, a properly installed front tow hook has been added to the Registration Rules. A front tow hook will be required for all future Driver Education events and will be checked at the Tech Line. It’s your track time that we’re trying to save!

    See you track side!

    If you do not have a tow hook where can you get one?

    Also, I’m lucky to have seen this by coming through the website.

    It would be nice if there were communications sent out to all the registrants indicating that there is a rule change.

    Hi Daniel,

    This is not a rule change, it has always been a requirement, but I think over time we maybe had not reinforced it with people new to the DE programme. We will be updating our DE information to include this.

    As far as where to get a tow-hook, all cars came with them as part of the OEM tool kit, although I know many get lost when ownership is transferred. My suggestion would be either a Porsche Dealer (who can certainly get you one, but probably doesn’t have one in-stock) or, more likely one of our recommended DE inspection centres, who may have one lying around. Beyond that any of the Porsche Parts Recyclers will almost surely have some.

    Best regards,

    Andy

    Got it, thanks for the advice Andy. I will look into these options and have one for this weekend.

    Cheers!
