Vauxhall VXR Power Events For 2010
The Vauxhall VXR Power events are back for 2010 and this year there are quite a few changes. Not only are there the VXR track days that have been so successful over the last few years, there are now a host of events aimed at VXR owners as well as other track based events throughout the summer.
Running from April through to August, VXR Power Events will provide a fantastic opportunity for VXR enthusiasts and owners to show off their driving skills in a variety of track challenges and road trips which demonstrate the strength and breadth of the VXR product line-up.
This year you can take part in any of the following activities:
The Rollercoaster Challenge is a road trip with a difference. The challenge is for VXR owners to drive to, and ride on, the UK’s top adrenaline rollercoasters – Thorpe Park, Alton Towers and Blackpool. The event will be held in May and starts from either Blackpool or Thorpe Park and then moves to Alton Towers for the final rollercoaster ride and a celbratory BBQ. Check out Torque Astra for more information on the challenge and the possibility of raising money for Help The Heroes.
VXR Track Days
Building on the success of last year’s VXR Track Days, this season’s open-to-all events will add more track time for drivers and more venues too. Vauxhall will also be bringing along its full range of VXR cars.
VXR Sprint Nights
Spread across five airfield venues, the VXR Sprint Nights will give drivers the opportunity to take part in a timed 0-60 & quarter-mile challenge and to set the fastest time on a specially designed autotest course – the ultimate arena in which to test your driving skills. Vauxhall will supply the cars for each activity, while VXR owners will have the chance to put their own cars to the test in the 0-60 and quarter-mile challenges.
VXR Karting Challenges
Includes exciting on-track battles with a calendar of team endurance racing, the fastest teams going through to a Grand Final and VXR glory.
Epic road trips to Nürburgring and Le Mans
One-off events this season include joining the works-supported OPC Team at the prestigious 24 hour Nürburgring endurance race, a weekend at the legendary Le Mans 24-hourrace, and a full-on petrolheads’ road trip to the Nürburgring circuit.
VXR Power Festival
The season’s grand finale will take place at Silverstone Circuit throughout the August Bank Holiday weekend. Up to 4000 people are expected to attend, along with some of the fastest Vauxhalls ever produced. Activities will include timed acceleration runs for owners, the final of the season’s karting championship, live entertainment and much, much more.
