    Anyone else heading to Autosport this weekend?

    Heading over tomorrow (Thursday) to cover the event for a couple of magazines and see my artwork for the Terry Grant posters on the Rage stand for the first time since they asked for my pics etc...can't wait...

    And best of all as I've done a lot of work involving Terry in the past he's asked me and the mate to cover his world record attempt tomorrow...

    I should be running around in a bright yellow polo shirt with jon44w.com on it if anyone else is in attendance...

    Will fire up some links to the pics I place online on Friday too...

    I'm also in Brussels for the European Motorshow on Saturday, so pics will follow from there too at the start of next week

    Well, just back in the door from Autosport...few nice machines around - personally don't think the show was as good as last year...

    On a VX front we have the Astra VXR Sprint on the VXR stand - version on display has rear stripped out, 2 racing seats, 3 gauge pod in top centre of dash (much like the Focus ST setup), half rollcage in place of the back seat etc, 4 point harnesses, bigger brakes, lightweight racing rims etc...

    Spec beside the car shows 3 variants...the 265bhp version on show, a 290bhp version (if memory serves me right), and a top level 330bhp version...

    The stage 1 work is already complete hence this one on show, stage 2 is currently in development and stage 3 is next on the list - all mods required for these power hikes are detailed on the spec sheet too...

    I managed to talk the girl in charge of the stand today into opening up the Sprint so I could get a few quick interior pics as it stands - I'll get these online tomorrow as well as the rest of them as have been up since 3am yesterday morning to head over to the show...

    Also a nice 888 developed CDTI running just under 200 ponies with some nice subtle touches - is in white and can be found over near Fiona Leggate's Astra Coupe BTCC car - again from memory there are only 100 of these limited edition CDTI's being made...will be able to confirm once I get the pics sorted tomorrow as snapped the spec sheets for both the cars mentioned above

    Links should be online to the pics some stage tomorrow...

    Oh yeah - sadly Terry had issues with his cars today so was unable to go for the 4 cars diffing under the control of one person at the same time world record attempt, instead he equalled his own current record of 3 and plans to go for the 4 tomorrow or over the weekend as long as all the cars stay running ok (has 3 legends, TVR, Impreza and some sort of kit car (could have been an Ultima Can-Am)...
