    Apparently the VXR Vauxhall gave them was a protype and it had SportHatch suspension on it, hence it's handling wasn't quite up to scratch (not that Mr Clarkson would have noticed - muppet)

    What made me laugh when i watched the programme was he slated the VXR handling and blamed the way it handled on it's poor track time. Then said but it got around faster than the Golf. Followed that by saying becuase the Golf has better handling it is a more complete package and he prefers the Golf over the Astra.

    Then he shows a clip of the Golf spinning off their time trial track...

    which car has better handling???
    Defend Freedom. You are the resistance!
