Vauxhall launches four special VXR track days; drive every VXR for £95
23 May 2007

This July should be an exciting month for anyone tempted by a fast, VXR-badged Vauxhall. That's because the Luton-based Brit car brand has just announced a series of special track days at which you can drive every VXR model in the range flat out, including the new Corsa VXR and the VXR8 Australian super-saloon.

The track days are being held at Donington Park, Derbyshire (July 5 & 6), Oulton Park, Cheshire (July 11 & 12), Brands Hatch, Kent (July 25 & 26) and Thruxton, Hampshire (July 25 & 26). 

It costs £95 to take part, and you get 90 minutes on circuit, with a fully-qualified instructor, for your money.

That'd be good value for a normal bring-your-own-car track day; it's great value considering that someone else is supplying the car, the fuel, the tyres and the insurance cover. 

Here's the best bit though; if, after attending, you like one of the VXR models enough to buy one this year, Vauxhall will refund the cost of the track day against the cost of the car. 

All drivers must be 21 years or over, and hold a full UK driving licence. Visit www.vxr.co.uk to book your place.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
