We don’t know how many Porsche owners venture into the cold with their 911, never mind one with a removable roof. Honestly, we hope more people have a go in the snow than not, because cars were meant to be driven and winter driving can be rewarding in its own way. Regardless, Porsche needs to make sure its roofless models are prepared for all weather conditions, which is why we see the forthcoming 911 Targa tackling snowbound roads north of the Arctic Circle.

'The defendant is self employed as a professional horse trainer.

'Of course she is the author of her own misfortune and she must bear the consequences. But there is a knock-on effect.'

Mr Haslam said his client had not 'wilfully disregarded' the limit but had been 'blissfully unaware of her offending' after not realising the speed had been reduced from 70mph to 60mph.

'I do not want the court to take the view that this was someone who was wilfully driving around ignoring the speed limits.'

'The defendant is a self-employed personal horse trainer and I ask the court to deal with her, whatever her other connections may or may not be.

'She works very hard and very long hours as a horse trainer. It is not a nine to five occupation.'
