well went on manday what a day it was

in the first half of the morning it was all about driving skill
but not in a vxr! it was a 1.6 astra design but that was fine for what there use was.
the was an auto test course coned out which consisted of a a 3 turn slarlom round a box and then driving into the box (with aid of handbreak) then j turn out of the box and down to anothere cone and round it twice and then stop in between 2 cones.
was quite fun and you had insturctor with you to time you run and guide you round the course.

then there was a slarlom course 4 turns round a gate at the top and back down through the cones took more controll that i thought but again was fun

next was the 2 wheel experiance paul swift took you out in an astra vxr and then used a little kicker ramp to get it on 2 wheels for a fair distance really strange but so funny.
then paul swift and his team finished off by doin a little bit of 'stunt' driving
second part of the morning was the track action

first the instructors took us out for a slowish ride around the track i got a ride in a corsa (quicker than i thought i would be)
then i was time to chose your car, i went for the astra first really nice car felt nice and quick round the track, corsa was was good when i had a go of that too, the vxr8 was a good but the gearbox was a bit shit tbh far too clunky and the traction controll kicks in a bit too early(they wouldnt let me turn it off! frown ) was very quick when the loud peadal was preased and it made a sweet sound. after a few laps around in confidance had grown out on the track and went out in the astra for the 4th time i was great really nice speed pick up and great handling really nice car.

my last lap round the track was with a racing driver in the astra

OMG he threw that car around the track ive never been in a front wheel drive car and got that sideways ever that was a real quick lap. was great day woth every penny!
