Steve, I went with the AA in the end, as they SPECIFICALLY state they support Trackday breakdown recovery. A little more expensive, but with the usual "new customer" incentives, not madly expensive. Come renewal time might be another matter!

I thought that with AA you need to have their separate break down cover for europe....
