British GT Championship Notebook: VX220 For Sale, BMW On Display, Fletcher On TV

Cars and Stars!

Spotted by the British GT Championship media man Tom Hornsby is a car that he and the DSC Editor were looking to join the 300th race ‘heritage’ display at Donington Park last month.

The Vauxhall VX220, built and raced, with some success in the then DSC-backed Cup class of the British GT Championship back in 2004 but the late and much-missed Colin Blower was, and still is a real looker, a purposeful and potent pocket race rocket.

The car didn’t make it to Donington for the display and parade and is now for sale via eBay for a fiver under £30k.

 We love it!

The eBay Listing for the VX220 is HERE >>
