Earlier this week we brought you coverage on Classic Ford Show, today we are covering Performance Vauxhall Show also held at Santa Pod Raceway. The guys over at Kelsey Media have definitely been a busy bunch!
Unlike last weekend, the weather at PVS was greeted by glorious sunshine. A few friends walked away from the show very sunburnt – always remember people, prepare for all weather conditions.
There were a few familiar faces on the day, such as the S&J Motorsport Corsa B Drag car. A big intercooler, hanging from the front of a Corsa – nothing more intimidating.
A friend of mine, Josh, had his Corsa C on “Show’n’Shine” – always nice to see someone modify a five door.
The car of the show for me, wasn’t even a car, it is this Astra Van which has been slammed on a set of WCI MT10’s. I couldn’t see the rear install, so I am not sure what suspension set-up this is running, taking an educated guess and from the most popular trends, I would say it’s on air-ride.
Another car that caught my attention was this Zafira. Completely stock from the outside, with the exception of eyebrows and wind deflectors, lurking under the bonnet was a Z20LET engine. So a VXR engine in a family wagon – that is a very quick school run.
The strip was alive, and thanks to the weather, was open all day. A manner of cars were running the strip, from a daily drive Astra VXR to the more drag focused Victor.
Again, I would like to thank Darren our local Santa Pod photographer for the images! Here are the rest of the pictures from the day:
