get to drive a vauxhall vxr round some famous tracks in uk for £95

Vauxhall is giving you the chance to experience all of this and more during a VXR Track Day. It's a great opportunity to get your hands on some very powerful VXR models. You'll get 90 minutes on the track, 90 minutes of handling activities and all with top instructors.

Hi tony2311, i've added a pic and some extra info there :)
#2
what a surprise
only england covered as usual
4 tracks all hundreds of miles away
woulda been a good deal if they remembered theres more than just south of england in the uk
never mind
#3
That's a good price.... regardless of whether Vauxhall choose to only run it at English tracks.

Voted accordingly. :-)
#4
sounds good but how does the price compare to other trackdays ?
#5
Booked it.
I think its a great price. Other track days you use your own car. Ive done a couple and after car prep and payment for day, petrol tyres brakes, I reckon it cost me about £800/900, and thats without breaking the car.
Ive seen quite a few people ruin their cars on trackdays, got caught up in the moment and then caught up in the tyre wall :?

Vauxhall may try and sell you a car, but to get to drive the vxr range on track, this is well worth it.

Im booked Thruxton AM btw.

Thanks tony2311


Edit: bad spelling!
#6
I've booked Thruxton PM. Fantastic deal, with 90mins on track and 90 mins of hopefully more fun driving!

Thanks to the OP - heat and rep given.
#7
now i'd want to do this but do we actually get 90 mins track time driving or will it be a 3 laps and thats it kinda thing, next person up.

dont spose there is a number to call to ask some questions is there?

normal trackday its about £120-£200 but you use your own cars. kill your engine/clutch/brake/tyres + fuel on track (you be very lucky to get more then 10 MPG, no one to instruct you! so if you never done track day before, this £95 is a very good bargain,
#9
its a good price for 90minutes track time, it says 90minutes track time and you drive all the vxr's, you must get a reasonable driving time.

tho 3hours 15 in total is allowed for track time etc, so between swapping cars and going out at different times etc who knows how long you really get.

I guess it depends on how many people go.
#10
Booked it!

me and my buddy are off to Oulton Park PM!

3 hours in front of the wheel of a VXr at this price is well worth it!

90 mins 'track time'
90 mins 'handling time'

can't wait :D

That is about if you buy a car at the end, you get your 95 quid taken of the price of a car.

Does that mean i have to pay for the car if i damage it? lol
#14
Thanks to the OP... I have booked in at Brands along with 6 other people in the office.
#15
have booked it, mates going to do it when he gets home hopefully will be able to get it on the same day.. :)
#16
For those wanting the best bang for your book, the early slot includes breakfast and lunch, the afternoon session just includes lunch. I have a Corsa VXR on order but if there is a delay I may have to cancel and reorder in the qualifying period to claim back the £95.
Booked this already along with my cousin who is a vauxhall agent for the Thursday pm at Oulton, shame I am nights so I may be a little slow off the mark :whistling:
For those that plan to book you need to enter your Driving Licence number.
#17
im 20 but you have to be 21, gutted :( voted hot though great find! Thanks for shareing.
#18
thats a great deal. voted hot:thumbsup:
#19
What do I need to bring? Full driving license (paper and card sections) and your invitation letter.

4. I am over 21 and am a holder of a full current UK/Eire/European Union driving licence (or equivalent if non–EU resident) which I will produce on request. I will not allow any other person to drive any evaluation vehicle without the permission of VML or the test track facility).


I only have the old pink licence. (Pre-Photo)
Does that mean I will not be able to go?

Good price as peeps say for a track day with the use of a car which isnt yours, and a tasty VXR at that.

Shame its only England.
I own a Astra VXR and can only say that you peeps will have the time of your life throwing it around a track. Just be careful if its wet. They are not the best in the wet - too much power for the front end.
#21
This is great I am 15 miles from Donington as really looking forward it, thanks for posting deal.
#22
.... but its a vauxhall !!
Might as well spend more and drive a proper super car. Think of it as £95 off a lamborghini for example :p
#23
its a collection of vauxhalls... :p

and to be fair, an astra vxr is savage, just by poor design, im sure that on its own will make it as fun as a supercar :P

Spending more for a supercar, gets you no where near as much time actually driving it.

So can anyone comment on the, "what happens if i crash it"? lol

Shame I can't take my 330bhp Subaru on track then if it's wet on the day!! ;-)
Just waiting for a couple of mates to confirm before we book for Oulton Park :thumbsup:
#25
* 90 minutes of track time
* 90 minutes of handling activities


Does anyone know if this is 90 mins per person or 90 mins split across the group? Doesnt mention the size of the groups either.

Has anyone managed to book more than 1 ticket per session? I've check all 16 sessions and all only have 1 ticket available.

You can only book your own ticket, you cant book for anyone else (well you could if you had all their details but it would have to be a seperate booking)

It would appear each session will have a limit of 70, I would assume you will be squaded and given a demo drive before you get a go. There are two elements: track and manouverability so should be 35 allocated to each 90 mins, I doubt that you get all that time driving!
#27
Brilliant deal, just booked Oulton Park afternoon session on Wednesday 11th July. I've always wanted to drive at Oulton, it's a super circuit, booked a trackday in my own car there a couple of years ago and it came to £175 with some instruction but circumstances meant I couldn't go. This takes worry out of smashing your own car up, wear and tear, tyres and fuel etc.

Anyone going watch out cause I won't be hanging around!! :thumbsup:

You would only be liable, if you did not follow their rules (i.e were being stupid and dangerous).

If you were following their rules, and driving according to their training, you will not be liable for any damage.

From what I hear/read, its done like bus stops. Choose the car you have not driven yet, get in the q, when someone brings that car in next person gets in the driving seat.
Its actually an evalution of the cars, wont have one car all day. I think they will push the new corsa vxr, so will have a fair few of them available.
I also cant see any way there is going to be 90mins on track driving.
Still looking forward to it :w00t:

I brought tickets for 6th July track day but they have not arrived as yet, sent email without getting a reply, has anyone else who brought tickets received them as yet?

Thanks
#31
Damn it im only 20!

Would have been great to drive at Donnington though. Im going there for the Moto GP this weekend.
#33
I emailed that address, it's for the US ticketweb. Call them up on 08701535353. But AFAIK tickets will be sent 7 days prior to the event :)
#34
cheers

Your other halves won't have mentioned this but an even cheaper way to get some race car experience is to use Tesco points.

Thruxton and Croft circuits take Clubcard vouchers - so for example you can drive a formula renault at Croft for £160 cash or £40 in vouchers.

I am one very lucky man and I'm doing this next month.....

Also available near leicester...

excellent post - thanks . I live a short drive from Thruxton.
The cost was offset by the £51 I made pre-selling my Goodwood tickets before they arrived this morning.
#37
thanks for this

i ordered a while ago before spotting this on here, good deal as mopst track days driving a track car is £150 to £180ish
#38
Just a big thanks to the op.

Went on my trackday yesterday morning at Oulton Park.

They did say if we were paying corporate it would be about £450 a head.

Nice Breakfast, nice dinner, great drives, and activities. And a free photo and goodie bag at the end.

Great day out, many thanks.

Hope you left some cars as I am just setting off there now for the afternoon session.
