Towing Part 2 - a car with no trailer


Here's a question I am unsure of.

Is it legal to tow a car - in this case with a proper metal towing shaft so there is no free play like there is with rope - I plan to tow it to a local airfield for brake compound testing and bedding in.

I know cars can be towed, but does the car being towed have to have:

a) road tax?
b) insurance?

The towed car will *not* be powering itself, but I will have to sit there steering it, but nothing else.

The journey is not far, probably only 10 miles, but I would like it to be a legal one.

Trailers have no tax, and no insurenace either as that is covered by the vehicle powering it so I wonder if this also applies in my case? i.e. I don't need to tax and insure the race car (oh g, the cost)

I normally hire a trailer, but for such a short journey I dodn't want to if I don't have to.
