On my way to my old mans for Sunday dinner, waiting at the traffic lights to turn right onto a stretch of national. I noticed a red Astra VXR Race edition 2 cars back. I know the lad as i work with him and hes told me before about slaying some pretty fast cars in that thing. Anyway i turn right, he follows and we both went for it. all the way down the road the gap simply did not get bigger or smaller until we eventually had to slow down.
I know these things are very fast when they can get the power down and today it was bone dry and the road was perfectly straight and slightly downhill. I honestly believed he was playing about with me and not giving it 100% but i spoke to him afterwards and he was going full pelt too ! So overall i was pretty impressed that i was at least matching him. Thankfully i had the car remapped a few week back otherwise it would have bye bye astra.
