    It has a 1.9 CDTi engine in it. Unfortunatly Vauxhall canned the plans to race this very early on.

    I can recall someone doing a factory tour of tripleeight back in early 2004 and they wernt allowed to look under the covers of what appeared to be a vectra shaped vehicle....

    I reckon that would have been as competitive than the VXR Sporthatch was this year.

    Rumours were (not heard differently yet), that there may be scope for a one series race project of Vectra C's to this/similar spec though, diesel hasnt been ruled out either. About 5 years ago there was a 1-make Vectra race (in support to the BTCC if I recall) which included an LPG member pioneering the introduction of Dual Fuel.

    The weight of the Vectra would of certainly helped in some of the bumps that happened this year.

    you mean the vectra challenge... the race series that sparked the vectra ST and ST200.
