Have you had any software updates done? Could just be a sensor problem.
Failing that it could be a cir clip failed.

I'm sure someone with more knowledge than me will have a better idea

Do you have a cobb or ecutek cable. Maybe a code read will throw up some info.
Seems to be a day for it as a few people are mentioning gearbox problems.

Can the car be towed in neutral or is it a bad idea

It's best not to tow it, ask the aa to bring a flat bed. Hopefully it's nothing too serious.

Hard luck erol, hope they got it on the flat bed alright, it's best to ask for a detachable flat bed so they don't damage the splitter.

I think Dean kenny's problem sounded similar to yours, if you search for his thread you can read all about it, but he did end up having a new gearbox after they first attempted a fix. Is you car still in warranty?

This happened to me at silverstone and turned out to be a boost leak causing all sorts of havoc

Where is your local NHPC.

Could be worth them taking a look, just don't mention the stage 4 and play dumb.
if they mug you off then im sure someone on here will have the right advice.
glad to hear you made it home and the fact the car started again could mean its not too serious ...... fingers crossed.
