If you went, you’ll know what all the fuss was about, if you didn’t, make sure you go next year! I’m taking about PVS 2013. It was an absolutely cracking event, made all the more impressive by the amount of hard graft that you lot had put into it. There were many more club cars than in previous years, and plenty of freshly (or very nearly) completed Vauxhalls on display. Many of which we hope to bring you in the mag over the coming months. If you want to relive the experience, or even if you missed it this year, check out part one of our show report over on page 56.
Also in this issue we’ve unearthed a rather exciting gem in the shape of a Zakspeed Calibra. This incredible carbon creation appears never to have turned a wheel in anger and we were lucky to be granted unprecedented access to it.
One car that most definitely has turned a wheel in anger is this issue’s cover star – Gary Carstairs’ exceptional Astra 4x4. It’s packed with interesting, exciting and innovative modifications and it’s great to see such a great example of an often maligned Astra model. Check it out on page 24 and I hope you enjoy your mag!
