Performance Vauxhall - - NEWS -

We start off the is­sue with the most ex­cel­lent news that the date for the Per­for­mance Vaux­hall Show has been an­nounced. 12 June is the date, and it's go­ing to be a big one!

But that's ob­vi­ously months away, so in the mean­time you'll have to get your Grif­fin fix else­where – and where bet­ter than this very mag­a­zine! We've got a top mix of cars in this is­sue, from the last ever BTCC Cav­a­lier (how cool!) to a Kadett GSI rep that lit­er­ally had Jarkle drool­ing over his key­board.

We of­ten know about po­ten­tial fea­ture cars long be­fore they hap­pen – such is the na­ture of fo­rums and so­cial me­dia – cars like Ian Waterfield's 500bhp Zafira (page 92) and Dave Hughes im­mac­u­late Vec­tra (page 40) but oc­ca­sion­ally cars just turn up out-of-the-blue, cars that have been com­pletely off our radar ap­pear and sur­prise us all. One such car is the RWD As­tra sleeper (page 84) be­long­ing to Andy Griggs. It's a lovely ex­am­ple of the rare Mk1, but with an awesome se­cret hid­den within.

Slightly less sur­pris­ing, but no less im­pres­sive is the Osch­er­sleben Opel Tr­ef­fen show re­port – Ev­ery year our rov­ing re­porter Steve McCann sets off in search of the Ger­man mad­ness, and we had the task of whit­tling down hun­dreds of im­ages to give you a taste of what the event is all about. Go and have a look for your­self on page 28, and if you like what you see, why not make it your mis­sion to head over there your­self in 2016?

That's enough from me, I really hope you enjoy the mag!
