that would be impressive if it was true.

the Nurburgring did it in 8.35, and if the corsa did it in 8.25 it would be up there with some serious machinery!!

there is no chance that the corsa did it in 8.25 because that is focus RS territory

8.35 was set by a normal opc astra in arden blue but there are no suggestions that an exhaust would give a quicker time
