    Default So you think a Vectra VXR is fast....

    Was at RAF Marham today unleashing the VXR down the 1.5 mile runway..

    30-130mph and then top speed run in the Vectra VXR....

    Have a look at the competitors.... (you will see me as Car 22 in the list)

    Then take a look at the results....

    RESULTS:-

    Spoons Vectra VXR 30-130mph in 27.37 seconds (RaceLogic GPS)
    Spoons Vectra VXR Top Speed was 138.94 MPH (RaceLogic GPS)

    It was a good day , weather was bright and clear skies. The only downside was a 20-25 knot headwind. The wind socks were almost vertical !!

    This is why my terminal speed was so low... so think about the Skyline now, in that context !! 198.81 MPH in a 20-25 knot headwind (AND the runway was on a noticeable incline from the start point)

    On that day, the VXR was slow !!

    I did 30mph sprint to 130mph in 27.37 seconds (GPS Speed in a 20 knot headwind) !!
    The fastest time on the day was 7.12 seconds in a Subaru Impreza !!

    However, the fastest time yesterday was in 6.8 seconds in an EVO !! 30-130mph in 6.8 seconds !!

    It was a charity event, so I contributed some money to charity. All they said was, if you leave the runway there is a lot of grass and its very difficult to hit anything, please dont hit anything

    We all needed security clearance from the RAF POLICE as it is an active airbase where they fly Tornado's from. We were greated by ARMED SOLDIERS at the gates... You know, the typical sort of club 'Meet & Greet' thing (The RAF Staff were brilliant, and had a genuine interest in all the cars)

    EVERY car there was modded to the hilt !!

    The Golf GTi's were pushing 360 BHP !!! - lol

    Also, most cars were running Nitrous Oxide and some cars were SO heavily modded, they arrived on a trailor. We watched cars start up and were 'chugging' whilst warming up, then 'lurching' as the clutch was engaged.. and as they passed us slowly, you could hear the transmission wine... These cars were SERIOUS

    I reckon, even a BUGATTI VEYRON would have struggled on the 30-130 mph times compared to these top end cars !
