Vauxhall Astra Mk5 Banger #97

I didn't really notice what this was to start with, but it seems the Mk5 is now old enough that examples are getting raced - I think there were two or three at this event. There were loads of Mk4s, although I don't recall seeing any Mk3s.

 

Whereas the simpler, older cars are more stripped-out and have the radiator moved to the back of the engine, I presume this is far too much hassle on a more modern car and this one raced with its dashboard still fitted and the radiator in its original, rather vulnerable location.

 

Banger World Championship, Foxhall Stadium November 2015.
