May be vauxhal hinting at a possible replacement championship for the now defunct Leon Cupra cup??

I hope they do, cos the Toca tour needs a stepup programme, but I also hope they dont either....cos I wont even think about trying to do touring cars in a few years if I have to work on or drive them.

As you probably already know, major Vauxhall hater here...

I hate to say it, and I never thought I would utter these words but I like it too!

Not a fan of Vauxhalls either, but that is a very sexy beast of a car. Don't think it would work in another colour though. JMPO

They're not actually being made by Vauxhall, I think they're limited to a few numbers.
The new VXR was "supposed" to be rear wheel drive, as Prodrive were contracted to do the conversion (on the mk4 Astra). Not sure what happened.
