    Anyone been around the 'Ring in the VXR?
    Im considering going later this year and wondered what it was like.

    Yes.

    Its scary but brilliant fun.

    Take it slowly at first and build up the speed, some corners look a bit alike so can be confusing, treat it like a fast road and not a track, keep you eyes on your mirrors.

      Thanks for that,
      Looks like it might be a good weekend out though i heard it can be expensive. If you crash they charge you while they close the track and they charge you a fortune for the ambulance to pick you up. Thats just kicking someone when they're down...

      Do you know of the fastest time set in a VXR?

          8:31 is a damn quick time for an Astra. I presume that is for a standard one aswell? I would imagine one with a stage 1,2 or 3 tune would do it substantially quicker.
          I think I'll start my sights a little lower, maybe 10:30ish.

            still bloody fast though. stage upgrades would give faster times although dont know by how much. coilover suspension upgrades, quality/sticky tyres and big brake kit would also make a significantly faster lap time.
