Information About The Opel Motorsport Division:

Vauxhall and Opel were both purchased by GM many years ago. At that time Vauxhall had a market limited
only for the United Kingdom and Ireland, where Opel presence was very weak. In motorsport Vauxhall had only
one important program, the Chevette, everything outside this were either insignificant or absolute in line with Opel.

Because of this it is better to refer to the Opel history in racing events, where the Chevette is also found.

In the years after Ascona 400, Manta 400 and Chevette HSR, the primal cars used in rallying were the Opel
Kadett and Vauxhall Astra in group A. These vehicles were exactly the same except the logo. There is no a
trustworthy way to figure out in racing terms what car is an Opel or a Vauxhall, because badges could be easily
changed.

Opel's rally program had a relatively weak success, but the team efforts wasn't as focused as the dedication
of some of the other Group B competitors. However, the Group 4 Ascona 400, with Walter Röhrl, won the 1982
driver's championship.

The Vectra model was involved in several touring car racing events. In the 1990s and early 2000s, the Vectra B
Super Touring was part of the British Touring Car Championship.

After being succeeded by the Astra C in the British Touring Car Championship, the Vauxhall Vectra was presented
in 2007. Fabrizio Giovanardi was champion in 2007 and 2008. VX Racing team competed in the 2009 event with three
Vectra cars.
