    Just put 'Vectra Racer' in Google, don't ask me why, and found this picture. What race series is that from? Looks pretty cool.

    Vectra DTM racer apparently?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutsch...nwagen_Masters

    "All DTM race cars have RWD and 4.0 L V8 engines which are air-restricted to 470 hp"

    Sounds incredibly like Eurocar to me.
    Maybe they wanted Eurocar minus the dodgy stock car followers, Eurocar with a bit of class.

    It was intended to be a European nascar.

    I used to see Eurocar's occasionally before they were banned from Mallory park race circuit, when one flew into a marshall post taking out one marshalls teeth in the process.

    No, that was the facelift version, but the race team got sick and tired of having to loosen the front bumper and remove the headlights every time they needed to change a h/light bulb, so the replaced the bonnet, bumper, headlights and wings for the pre-facelift version.

    Really? So that would have been raced on the BTCC? It's just I don't remember seeing it. I didn't watch all the races though admittedly.
