    Astra 888 & BTCC...

    Are set to divorce

    anyone else heard this rumour that the new Vauxhall to be competing in the BTCC this season will be the Astra H Sport Hatch..

    I was watching Autosport International on Motors TV and Colin Turkington claims he'll be driving the hatch for the 2005 season...


    Are vauxhall really shelving the dominate force that is the 888????

    not sure if this should be posted here but feel free to move it mods

    the new BTCC racer will be the sports hatch as the coupe is no longer made nor will a astra coupe be made in the forseeable future.

    I am suprised that 888 are not building it though!

    that is a surprise Mat, i thought 888 would have at least built it

    thanks for clearing that up it's just they had a Coupe in VXR livery on the stand and plain red hatch i though i had misheard him

    ....on the same programme...Matt Neal said they would see what 888 came up with...

    So I reckon they are building it, and yes on the 3 door sport hatch.


    Why break up a winning partnership.

    Triple Eight are building the cars and have built one already and it's out testing as we speak.
