    Talking Thruxton VXR Track-day

    WOW! What a fantastic day me and the intended had at Thruxton this afternoon. After booking the VXR track day back in Feb, our day had finally arrived!! We were in the afternoon session, so after registering and having a spot of lunch, we had a wander and took some pics. Here are some of the cars!













    Track driving was excellent, had a go in all the cars, and have to say the Astra impressed me the most for drivability. Even tried the Meriva , but it was actually quite a capable car round the circuit. Corsa was fun. Vectra had a refinement to the power, VXR8 was just MAD . Wasn't sure about the Zafira.

    My Hot lap in the nurb. Astra was incredible, like driving on ice in a couple of places, and we nearly didn't make it as there seemed to be a fuelling issue, managed to limp back to the pits.

    Driving experience was enjoyable, i didn't have the quickest times, but i had fun!

    At the end of the day, my other half got to sit in as a passenger with Paul Swift while he went MENTAL with the astra. At the end he said he had learnt a few new words!!!!

    Absolutely brilliant day. Well worth £95 of anyones money and will definetly be going again next year!

    LJ, I was there this afternoon as well and was in the white group.
    I watched your missus have her ride with Paul Swift and she looked like she enjoyed it, made me laugh when he mentioned her language.

    I completly agree with you though, a superb day out!! I hope they do it in 2009.....

    What were your driving experience times? I only managed 30.1s on the slalom and 35.9s on the autotest. Not great, but I did beat the missus, and she has 3 points for speeding!

    I managed 26.69s on the slalom and 30.28s on the autotest.

    My mate I was with beat me by 0.03 on the slalom with a 26.66, they told him he was the quickest of the day!
    I was quickest on the autotest, which I was pretty pleased with.
    My brother did a 29.81s on the autotest but hit a cone and got a time penalty...tee hee!!

    I was there with 2 friends and my brothers and we were having a bit of healthy competition!!!

    It was a superb day, and I counted up 10 cars i went in so that was 40 laps of Thruxton... So for £95 a complete bargain!!
