Astra Mk4 Cam/Timing Belt Change
My first attempt at a cam belt. the old belt was very glazed and worn, the
water pump had been weeping too, so this was well in need.
Vauxhall Astra F MK3 GSi C20XE Redtop Brands Hatch Trackday Race Racing
First time having the GSi on track, and first time at Brands Hatch. Only a
20 minute taster session to get a feel for it.
First 3 laps are sighting laps with a Safety car leading.
Better camera position is needed next time!

off sadly... It still did well for an old girl though :)
