Performance Vauxhall Show 2008 - Santa Pod Sunday 8th June

As usual an early start for all involved to ensure we arrived in time and were all set up and ready for the show start. Despite part of the journey down to Santa Pod in fog and mist the day brightened up early and the weather was absolutely superb all day long with clear blue sky, sunshine and temperatures in the mid 20's and then some! Santa Pod 'instant suntans' were in evidence quite early on for those without sun cream!

A huge turnout of cars and people made for a busy but enjoyable day with good car club displays in evidence. There was a lot of great action on the 1/4 mile strip to keep the crowds entertained, including the Jet Car covering the quarter in 6 seconds and a 2200bhp Victor achieving a 7 second quarter. Many of our customers ran their own cars including Guy's VX220 Turbo, Dodd's Supercharged Corsa B which managed a 14.0 second time and the Tickle's AWE liveried VXT which managed sub 13 second times all day, the quickest being 12.3 seconds.

Our mapping engineer Stefan Klasen came over from Germany for the show with his girlfriend Jenny and friend Michael and he brought across his modified Speedster (VX220) Turbo. The car has had extensive modification work including a full engine rebuild, tubular manifold, Garrett GT35 turbo, 100mm airflow meter, M32 gearbox, Klasen Inlet Manifold and more besides (pdf specification sheet). The car boasts some 600+ bhp and 447 lb ft torque. This car still runs the OE engine management system (Bosch 1.5.5) and Stefan has written the software that runs in the factory ecu, proving what is achievable with this management system. The car has OE driveability and is still completely road legal (obviously with the correct tyres!). Stefan piloted the car to an extremely impressive 10.32 second quarter achieving a terminal speed of 145 mph. Without doubt this is the fastest Speedster seen in the UK from any tuner, and fast enough to win the prize for fastest car on the day..

Finally thanks must go to everyone who helped out on the day and to our customer's and friends who put their cars on display to show off what we do. We would like to thank Stefan for making the long trip across to us and also like to thank Manolis and Zizzis Voulalas who are our Greek agents over in Athens and who supply Courtenay products in Greece and who came across from Greece with their friend Theo for the show.

The cars we had on display and whom we thank are (in no particular order): Stefan Klasen's Speedster Turbo, Alex's Red Astra VXR (K04 Race Turbo 310 bhp/340 lb ft), Scott's 385 bhp Astra VXR engined 888 Coupe, Darren's Blue Zafira VXR (Stage 3 - 292 bhp), Tim's Black Corsa VXR, Mark's Vectra VXR, The Tickle's AWE VX220 Turbo (K04 Race Turbo), Dave's Astra VXR Nürburgring Edition, Andy and Billy's Corsa B Z20LET, John's Supercharged Vectra B 2.2, Guy's Stage 4 VX220 Turbo, Dodd's Supercharged Corsa B 2.2 and our own cars - Jon's Red Stage 3 Corsa VXR and Mark's Supercharged Astra 2.2
