    Me and rob were talking about doing the history af astra sport a while ago so i will put what i remember and he and other old members can fill in and change what bits they remember.

    We can then do a proper one but its basically been running for 3 years now. This is our 4th message board now and 3rd server that we have used to run the site. We are very happy with this one now though!!

    It got started by Rob that and he found out about me and my car when i posted pics of my astra on a European site. I left an email address with the pics and he contacted me as i had a modded astra G and at the time there were not many about. Rob had set up the first message board already and me and him chatted on it for some time and on AOL/MSN messenger, this was with a few other members as well....of the top of my head there was clokem, autosparks, Liam, and tower. Sorry to anyone i have forgotten!!

    We had our first meet in Feb 2002 when we had around 6 cars turn up i know that we did have 15 to come and we had around 50 members at that time on the board.

    Its basically grown from there to be honest.

    There is more but i am sure other members can help fill in the blanks

    nothing really, it just seemed to have been around a bit longer. at the way things are going i think it's really well done. i did remember drooling at the pics from the reebok stadium. one of the first fotos i remember was a certain silver astra with almost everything BUT a bodykit. then it finally had an irmscher one. :P

    Hmmm. I wonder who's that was.

    I'm sure Mat will remember many a conversation between him and myself on how I liked the non kitted look.

    Until I happend across a kit

    And this was at PV2002 where I might add there were only a handfull of a/s members there and only a few 'G's' that were modded...humble beginings indeed.

    Bleeding Reiger and the such should be paying summat to a/s I tell thee.
