It's Four in a Row For Vauxhall-- and into The Record Books

Vauxhall and its race team, VX Racing, have clinched the manufacturers' and team titles in the Green Flag MSA British Touring Car Championship for an unprecedented fourth year in a row. Winning the titles for the fourth consecutive year has elevated the Vauxhall Astra Coupe into the record books -- it is the most successful car in the history of the British Touring Car Championship.

The 2.0 litre Vauxhall Astra Coupes have dominated the touring car scene from the introduction of the model in 2001, and this year finished ahead of their closest rivals, Honda and SEAT. Strong performances from all three drivers secured the team title for VX Racing.

Kevin Wale, managing director of Vauxhall Motors, said; "To win the manufacturers' and team titles again is a fantastic achievement. The BTCC has been very competitive this season and has produced the kind of wheel-to-wheel racing and excitement that the fans love. Our aim at Vauxhall is to produce winning cars, and the record breaking VX Racing Astra Coupes are testimony to the dedication of our people and the merit of our products."

The winning combination of Vauxhall, VX Racing and the Vauxhall Astra Coupe has dominated the BTCC since the introduction of the model in 2001.
