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.
