Be First To Drive The Vauxhall Astra VXR Without Leaving Your Desk

Vauxhall Astra Sport Hatch

Vauxhall Astra

  • Free seven-level racing game available on VXR website
  • Try a real Sport Hatch at Vauxhall retailers this weekend

Now you can be one of the first people in Britain to drive the hot new Astra VXR, and all it takes is the click of a mouse!

An all-new seven-level racing game is now available on the Vauxhall website, and it’s highly addictive. It allows you to race against friends or a computer-controlled rival on a choice of circuits, which all come complete with obstacles such as jumps, oil slicks, stray tyres and patches of sticky mud.

As well as the Astra VXR, budding racers can also tackle the seven tricky tracks in a VXR220 or Monaro VXR, and all have their own handling and performance characteristics to match the dynamics and driving excitement of the real production cars.

Once you’ve got used to racing using just the cursor controls on the keyboard, see if you can make the leader board by posting the best lap times on the web! Try it for yourself at , and join in the thrill of the race!

The game has been launched to coincide with the VX Racing Astra Sport Hatch debut in the first round of the 2005 British Touring Car Season, which gets underway on 9th April.

Drivers who prefer to try the real thing can sample a Sport Hatch for the first time this weekend at Vauxhall retailers. The stylish new Astra model makes its showroom debut on Saturday, and is being included in the innovative ‘Million Mile Drive’ programme, giving buyers the chance to sample Vauxhall driving excitement on a three day test drive.
