Astra VXR Trackday Car

I bought this 2006 Arden Blue Astra VXR to use as a track day car. It has covered 85,000 miles, but has had regular oil changes over and above the suggested service schedule. A new VXR turbo unit was fitted to it at about 72,000 miles in May 2011, and it had a cambelt and water pump change plus a new uprated clutch and lightweight single mass flywheel at 83,000 miles.

When I bought it it had already been fitted with the following upgrade parts:

  • Courtenay Sport Lightweight Single Mass Flywheel
  • Sachs Uprated Clutch Cover and Helix Uprated Sprung Disc
  • Wavetrac Limited Slip Differential
  • Courtenay Piper 76mm (3″) Full Stainless Steel Sports Exhaust System,
  • Uprated Courtenay Sport VXRacing Full Height Intercooler (Original Spec with 50mm outlet)
  • 18″ Revolution Millennium Alloy Wheels
  • DAP Road Springs,
  • Whiteline Rear Adjustable Anti Roll Bar
  • Alcon 4 Pot Monoblock Front Calipers with 345mm Single Piece Discs
  • Courtenay Sport Direct Route Hose Kit and Airbox
  • Lower Arm Brake Cooling Ducts
  • Foglight Delete Brake Cooling Ducts
  • Remapped by Courtenay Sport to 290bhp

which makes it a very good base car to begin with and to improve on.

Foolishly however, I did not many photographs when I first got the car (obviously I was keen to make a start on further improvements!) but here is one (admittedly not a very good one) I do have:
