Which of the following would you suggest converting to a track car:
2002-4 1.8L TDI Vectra. Heavy interior, weight reduction could yield good results, don't forget the vectra was a BTCC car back in the day.
1998-9 1.5L VTEC Civic. Superfast accelerator response, but smaller engine than the Vauxhall.
What would one expect to pay a base car for the civic, or a base car for the vectra?

The Civic transmission is generally faster, but you'd probably change that out anyway. Civic probably has more parts ready to be installed as the conversion, it's a more popular amateur race car.
I would go with the Vectra if you got a 2.0 or higher - the police used those in traffic for a reason! But if you are deciding on <2L cars, then I would be tempted towards the civic more.
Considering the age, I wouldn't pay more than £1000, probably in the £500-800 range.
Maybe up to £1200 for the vectra.

Would not be going for a tdi vectra for a track car. like. at all. a 1.5 civic would be much more usable and fun with the right mods..
