Whats the first thing that springs to mind when you hear the word "Vauxhall Corsa" ?..... (language timothy!!)
so.. last week i was pulling off from the A13 heading to Basildon via the Tesco turn off and this Corsa is stuck to my rear bumper all the way down the slip.. dont know about you lot, but this is one of my pet hates!!!
so im thinking... lets show the c**k head a performance car in action... toed it from a rolling start... say 30mph?! flying through the gears, at around 5k in third, look up at my wing mirror, this corsa is still stuck to my arse like glue!! looked back at the road.. bloody read lined it in third!! DOH!
Anyway quickly recovered, in both 4th and 5th... at this kind of speed bends are looking like 90 degree corners, looking ahead im thinking... ill have the turnip on this bend, hell have to brake!!! HA HA corsas cant handle!! but to my shock his still on my bumper!!! taking this corner as if it was invisible!
pulled over into the slow lane, still with my toe down, he couldnt overtake me.. and i think if it was a longer straight i would have started to gain above 120...
so their you have it... Corsa 1.8, one to look out for... have a look here for specs,
surprised me big style! apparently Lotus have designed their suspensions system, maybe that accounts for the good handling...
anyone else raced one of these new shape 1.8 corsa SRIs?
