Vauxhall goes racing with LPG

GAS power will be taking on the best petrol can throw at it where performance really matters - on the race track. Vauxhall is competing with a liquefied petroleum gas-powered Vectra in the remaining rounds of the 1998 Vectra SRi V6 Challenge one-make saloon car race series.

The 2.5-litre 210PS Vectra was developed over eight months by Vauxhall, fuel supplier Calor Autogas, Motor Sport Development and Millbrook proving ground. Nick Reilly, Vauxhall's chairman and managing director, said: 'Vauxhall is proud to be involved in yet another leap ahead in alternatively-fuelled motoring - albeit in a very alternative type of car. We believe this latest racing Vectra will be just as competitive as its petrol-powered rivals.'
