    Default VXR Performance Centre Banbury

    Always wanted to go here. Home of the VXR Touring Car team and the Vauxhall Performance Centre.

    I've Seen loads of pictures before but when you actually walk in it's so much smaller than it appears on the photographs.

    Just a couple of the cars outside as I figured this was about as close as you were going to get to a real stripped down Touring Car.

    Anyway outside great weather blessed the local Banbury Countryside.





    888 prepare cars other than the Vecs. here.



    But the bulk of the work is the cars for the BTCC.





    Cockpit is erm basic.









    Big Brother is always watching.



    Suspension/Brakes suitably large.





    Close up of the spoiler reveals a visit back to the dealer is called for to deal with the rust.



    I was expecting some rocket science cleaning stuff to be in evidence but it all seemed strangely simple.



    Company sales performance looking good.



    And oh to have a year planner like this one.



    The yellow markers are race weekends.



    Finally we found an engine.


    Trophies everywhere to be seen.



    So then we went for a wander out the back.


    ...and checked out what they were throwing out.





    Further evidence that this is in fact a race car team.



    ..and a complete wrapped shell hidden behind some pallets confirms it.


    After eyeing up the skips outside we returned back to the Customer area. This was very impressive and no wonder so many people come here to have upgrades done on their cars.



    Ian Plotting something.....



    It's a real Aladdins cave .



    Finally asked the little fella to take some pictures of the cars that had won various members votes.

    He came back with this.



    Great to see everyone again and meet some new faces too.

    Great pics Steve

    Do you think they would have noticed if a couple of bits had 'gone missing' from the scrap pile?
