80's Touring car Replicas

I'm interested in building a mk2 astra touring car replica like the car that John Cleland drove back in the 80's.

Can anyone help with contacts/information etc etc

Thanks in advance.

When you say replica, do you mean visually or down to the last nut and bolt? What kind of info are you after?
There are plenty of pics about, try the gallery on my site -

Hi chaps and thanks for the welcome.

I am after information right down to the last nut and bolt as I want to use the car for track days and sprints.

The cars were built by Dave Cooke Racing Services, so tracking them down might be a place to start. Or contact Vauxhall themselves to see if they have any info, or maybe they still have the cars themselves?

Cheers, thanks supertouring. IIRC, the engines were the 20XE on twin 45's, but I know little else.

Look around, I thought I once saw a pair of genuine Class 2 Astras were put up for sale. They were asking for something like $10K-15 GBP each??

This must be http://www.supertouring.co.uk, so without a dot at the end.
[Finally I found why this link didn't work. ]

Redshoes, I'm not trying to sound rude as I'm very greatful for the information provided, but I ran the post code through royalmail's site and it says it's not listed even on streetmap.co.uk it dosn't work.

Thanks though.

Have found some websites which mention Dave Cook, helps if I spell 'Cook' correctly!

The post code appear incorrect - Here is another address from that area which shows the difference:

Sheriff Hutton Industrial Estate
York Road
Sheriff Hutton, York
