Thread: You know....

    Default You know....

    I was looking around at all the cars displayed at the Breakfast Club (RAF Cosford) this weekend.

    Focus RS and Focus ST's... all pumped up, big brake kits, big spoilers etc

    Subaru's and Evo's... Rally decals, Carbon Fibre everywhere

    Audi TT's.... blinged up to the max....

    But not one Vectra... anywhere !!

    .... and I thought to myself.... how many of these car enthusiasts realise the humble Vauxhall Vectra dominated the BTCC Championship THREE years in a row and how capable the car actually is in motorsport?

    ... and to add, I've had my own personal experiences of beating all these cars on various race tracks and RAF runways... with my own humble road going Vectra VXR

    Beat 2 Mk1 Focus RS's and 2 Focus ST's at RAF Marham 30-130mph
    Beat Subaru STi on the Nurburgring, along with BMW M6 and M3's
    Beat Audi TT's all the time, stopped counting

    I do hope the Vectra isnt just forgotten...

    You're right, so many shops won't accept euros.

    There are lots of english shops that wont accept Scottish £5 NOTES...

    I swear my local english McDonalds referenced a picture book and needed manager approval before accepting it

    sadly i think the vectra will be always overshadowed by the amount of rep car's and taxi's they are used for

    i am forever arguing with a guy in work (rover 75 owner) that they are a good car and well made(ish)

    does this also apply to the vectra's arch rival - The Mond... sorry musn't swear. Think it does, never seen a "chavved up" (or whatever the correct description is) Mondeo before.
    To most people, including myself, these saloons are just good workhorses for a bargain price.

    They have to be, with what Giovanardi and Matt Neal did to them in BTCC. Some of the things "Gio" did I didn't think was humanly possibble, incredible car control.
