    I think this new Astra Saloon looks brilliant!! mmmmmmm makes me wonder, they can't race the 3dr Astra next year.....

    If the 5dr Astra VXR is a no go, then is a 4dr VXR on the cards!!

        I saw some stuff on Sunday that may suggest the next ? BTCC ? car is a Vectra !!! What JC calls a steaming pile of dog dirt on your brand new sitting room carpet.

          Next BTCC is supposed to be a Vectra .... although I heard that it may not fit with rule changes....


          Possibly leaving the dorr open for an Astra Saloon...
          Could be a quick turnaround in preparation
          - engine and running gear swapped easy enough
          - just need to play with handling with new bodyshape...

          Any official hints ???

            Was the Vectra not for the World Touring rather than British Touring?
            Have noticed that 888 have last years Astra's up for sale if anyone wants to buy them and setup a team - shame I don't have a spare couple hundred grand

              From what I have been told, the Vectra shell is too heavy?

              Who knows, but it would be good to see a good Vectra going round, bringing back the days of the Cavalier!!

              Time will tell!!

                  Vectra is roumoured to be of a simular constuction to that of the Seat.

                  Space frame and tube chassis.

                  the pic looks like a photo shop of the Astra G saloon.

                  as for the turn around i think the rules state that a number have to be made for the road a bit like the rally car rules thus not qualifying for the 2007 season.

                              Is it a good sign? Beginning to think it shows how obsessed we are becoming

                              But then what a thing to be obsessed with
