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!
