    Corsa VXR preview

    Two days later and i've been on another road trip. This time upto Glasgow. My best mate's familly owns 2 garages, which they are Vauxhall dealers for. He'd said to me the other day "Are you a potential Corsa VXR customer?"
    I said "no, but i can be if you want me to be!"

    He said that Vaux had been in touch offering for some of them from the garage to go up to it, but none of the salesmen could be bothered, so me and him went instead.
    Was at some go karting place, i can't remember the name of it though. They'd also paid for eveyone who was attending, to be able to go karting afterwards. Bonus!

    In the tent thing that the corsa was in, the lighting wasn't too great, but i still manages to snap a few. Pics i got are better than no pics at all eh?





    Turbo was tiny. But for a 1.6 to be producing 196 bhp or whatever it is, it must be working properly.


    These seats were so comfy. I now want some in my GSI!






    Excuse the camera shake, i dunno what happened here, but you can still see how the dash lights up. I think it's wicked!









    Then afterwards, this is where we were let loose to play.





    And seeing as they were free, i did come away with these. I was gonna nab a few more, but all the packets from downstairs had been taken, and i couldn't be bothered to go back into the building to get some more.


    From Alnwick (or near Newcastle for those of you that don't know Alnwick), it's quite a drive up there. Took about 1 hr 45 each way, or something like that. Just got back in the house at 12:20.


    I'd definately have one though, if it wasn't for having the GSI.


    There was also another black mk 4 GSi like mine there, although i wasn't in mine. And a silver Astra VXR. anyone from on here?

    IMO it would be Better if the Exhaust was Actually that Triangle and not the Tiddly On you can see Behind! Suppose it Means it will be easier to get a after market Exhaust!

    Ciaran; where's their other track. We occasionally have big karting dasy out up at Race land, Haddington. But we saw this track and thogh it was better, so thought about having one up there sometime. But if you say the other one is better, is it worth going to that one rather than this one?

    I'm going to one in Lincolnshire on Thursday.

    Might have to have a go round the karting track too.

    Not keen on the dash, tho think the center of it looks ok. Rest of it looks a bit plasticy (sp)
