17.06.09: New Astra caught on video!

Time 12 years ago

astraTHIS landed in my email in-box yesterday. It’s a viral video from Vauxhall of the new 2010 Astra being spanked around Millbrook – the very place we drove the Audi R8 V10 in this video.

I love the rival cars strategically overtaken along the way – the VW Golf which gets a waved arm gesture from the very ‘special’ driver, and the Ford Focus that gets swiftly barged out of the way too.

And the real treat is the all-four-wheels-off-the-ground leap (see pic) on my favourite part of the track – I’m sure the Vauxhall helmsman didn’t get told off for doing it though…

It’s a great video though – and a clever way to promote the new car.
