Performance Vauxhall Show 2011

Courtenay Sport will not be attending the Performance Vauxhall Show this year at Santa Pod.

Due to other commintments, we will be at Thruxton for Round Three of the Production Touring Car Trophy supporting both our race cars, as this race weekend clashes with PVS. We currently lead the championship so our efforts must go to into our race team to continue our strong start to the season.

Instead for 2011, we will be the headline sponsor of Total Vauxhall Live at Castle Combe, Saturday 30th July. This Vauxhall only track day based event is expected to be a fantastic show building on the success of last year and one that we are looking forward to putting our full support behind.

For any of our customers who wish to attend Total Vauxhall Live, we look forward to seeing you there. Tickets can be booked in advance with Total Vauxhall and there will be Track Time available along with our Astra VXR Race Cars, the drivers will be on hand and we hope to be able to offer a limited number of passanger laps.

Production Touring Car Trophy – Snetterton

Qualifying :: ::

It was competitive throughout the 20 minute session at a dry but slightly cloudy Snetterton but at least the pre 10am start meant temperatures weren’t too high.

Having had a good Friday practise, Adrian Churchill with no ballast on board was lapping in the 1:21’s and on lap 5 of a total of 6 put together a 1:20.922 to take pole.

2nd to 6th was very hard fought with places constantly changing. Kevin George in our sister Astra had second for most of the session but slipped to 6th by just 0.005 sec with 3 tenths covering 2nd to 6th.

Kevin came into the pits to allow his tyres to cool and with 2 minutes of qualifying left went out for one final lap, and found 4 tenths extra posting a 1:21.950, the only other car to get into the 1 minute 21’s.

A great start to the weekend.
