    Ahh last show of the year at my favourite circuit and the first time my better half was able to join us to enjoy the awesome cars, epic fun but very unstable drifters and the normal racers who were running out of skill every 15 minutes or so!

    Thanks to our man Tintin we had an excellent parking spot near the competitors entrance in the main paddock, perfect location for accessing every aspect including the coffee stands which is ultimately the most ...

    Jap cars... like a LOT of jap hardware and plenty of air ride too which seems to be the weapon of choice for mega belly scraping low.

    Trax is always one of those shows that brings out the car modifiers with huge wallets or huge debt, the sheer amount of money and shiny things is awesome. Trax has a nice variety of modified cars surrounded by an awesome racing circuit with a style to suit almost every taste... yes that does include scantily clad young models who put ...

    Hey guys sorry about the delay in getting the report out, life got in the way. That being said every year the Retro Rides Gathering is one of the most unique and exciting events about so it's hard to forget (as long as you love old retro cars that is!).

    After a pothole dodging drive to the location at Shelsley Walsh Hillclimb you get instantly subjected to awesome old cars intermixed with weird and wonderful hardware you have never seen before and will probably never ...

    The annual VBOA rally! I don't know about you guys but this is one of the highlights of my car related calender, minimal chav, maximum variety and disgusting Hawaiian shirts; what else can one ask for? Ok ok MAYBE a car with a decent paint job in my case but that didn't stop me showing it and actually winning something that wasn't a special needs trophy!

    We kick started off on Friday with awesome weather and an eagerness to actually do some work, my job as some of ...

    You know how sometimes you have a bad feeling about a show? After reading the new rules set down by the new Performance/Total Vauxhall magazine owners I expected pandemonium, screaming, manic traffic, angry VXR owners, some guy running around in the background waving his arms in the air and cats and dogs living together..... but in reality aside from a bit of a rush to get in before the deadline everything worked out really well! The Sun was cooking everyone, we had plenty of new ...

    Well... it's the end of summer, the weather is getting dodgy and it's the last show on the MIG calendar - It's bound to go tits up right!?? Wrongo!

    We had a packed MIG show stand, all sorts of crazy powered metal, some epic (and often scary) racing, sunshine! and great friends.
    It was an early start for everyone and I arrived sporting a cool outfit, rusty Carlton and a mild coma. The action pretty much started as soon as I arrived, luckily for us all our cars ...

    Several weeks ago I think it's safe to say everyone in the UK had accepted that Summer was over and the last few shows were going to be cold, wet and miserable; and yet MIG seemed to pick the best year to return to Trax with a hot summer's day!

    Racing, drifting, lots of big power cars and some weird and wacky stuff too! The racing saw a few mishaps, a few drifters ended up in the sand trap and randomly one loosing a wheel! That's what happens when you let the apprentice ...

    MIG have been my hosts at VBOA Billing for 10 years and have never failed to impress, this year was no different. This was my first year as part of the MIG Admin team which as far as I could tell involved me wearing a funky MIG shirt with my name on (I am assuming so I couldn’t forget it) and making strange hand gestures at members as they tried to park their cars, odd perhaps but never the less my fellow admin seemed happy with my performance.

    As always the calibre of member’s ...

    As with all car enthusiasts getting up at silly ‘o’ clock on a Sunday for a car show poses no issues, even if you have only had 2 hours sleep thanks to a broken car the night before. I left the house at a little before 7am and was greeted with a burning hot sun – SPF30 isn’t going to cut it today!

    Upon arrival I was greeted by my fellow MIG staff and members, Tintin had secured us a superb location this year and even though I had arrived early the flags were up and ...

    Who as of today has been taken on to assist the admin team with the duties we provide. As well as generally assisting us with the day to day stuff Johnny will also be know as our events reporter. As one member that attends nearly every thing, Johnny will be taking note of the events and giving us all a full scaled review from his perspective.

    Not only will this give us all something to read after the event but also a good insight for future members who may not have attended a show ...

    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. ...
