    First event completed and to say it is not what I expected would be an understatement! In my head it was a glorified trackday, but it was so intense and on the pulse it really got the adrenalin pumping.

    So the day started with a very misty morning and a very wet track, not what we wanted as we had done no real testing with these tyres as we have always previously ran on full slicks or race wets.

    So off we go for our 1st outing on track for practice on Nankang ns2r tyres, ...

    The car you see here, the Vauxhall Astra VXR, is fairly typical fare for the unusual VXR performance sub-brand. It is identifiable not by its common theme of focused, high-revving pace, startlingly sharp handling or race-derived engineering nous.

    Nope. VXR is rather more straightforward: if you can stick a Vauxhall badge on it, and it’s a little bit bonkers, it could just make the grade.

    Outwardly, the Astra looks wild. It also seems like quite good ...

    Clarkson and Hammond have announced their new Reasonably Priced Car for the next season of Top Gear.
    This Vauxhall Astra 'Tech Line' which has a 1.6 litre engine that produces a mindblowing 115ps will be thrashed within an inch of its life by a number of celebrities over the next few series of the sunday night show.
    Hammond has been keen to point out that the car has a 'lifetime' warranty so this is clearly a massive publicity boost for the Vauxhall brand. ...

    Vauxhall’s mid-size coupe challenger caused a stir when it became available to order in June. With a starting price of just £18,495 and dramatic styling from a design team led by Brit, Mark Adams, the GTC is set to wow UK customers and rock the established front runners in its class – the Volkswagen Scirocco and the Renault Megane Coupe. But the GTC’s appeal runs far deeper than its rakish lines. Unlike many three-door versions of existing compact hatches, the GTC – like the Astra Sports Hatch ...

    These first images of the Astra Mk6 Sport Hatch (also known as the GTC) may show it in a virtual landscape, but as it races down an imaginary road, real test cars are now running final validation drives – that’s right, the Astra Sport Hatch is officially a production reality. And on June 7 Vauxhall will reveal full details about the GTC to coincide with its order books opening. Pricing, technology, equipment and powertrains will be laid bare, giving customers the chance to specify their ideal ...

    It is with regret that Dave (GTE 16v) has decided to stand down as the events co-ordinator for MIG. I'm sure you will all agree that over the past three years he has done a sterling job and it will be a shame to see him stand down. The good news is that he will remain within the team and assist where possible with all areas. Your new Events co-ords are @ndy and myself. @ndy will be primarily dealing with the Castle Combe events and myself Billing, PV and TVL. Any issues though for either event ...
