Episode Guide

Watch this episode on Amazon Instant Video

In this episode, James May is taken far outside his comfort zone as he straps into an insanely fast, highly tuned, 600-horsepower hatchback and is thrown into the lion’s den of World Rallycross racing. As well as trying to fend off a pack of top-flight professional drivers, May’s life is made harder by his support crew, the distinctively unsupportive Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond.

Also in this show, Clarkson is at the track in the latest Jaguar F-type R and a sensational, modernised E-type called the Eagle Low Drag GT, while Hammond is in Spain to test the brand new version of the legendary Mazda MX-5.

Finally, Brit Pack acting star Nicholas Hoult tries his hand in the Reasonably Priced Car.

Some say…

“Some say that he wishes there was someone he could talk to about his mis-sold PPI, and that he spent all week making a stair-lift for Madonna. All we know is he’s called the Stig!”

A slightly disappointing episode. I was actually expecting a proper TG duel between the UK and USA like UK v Aus or D-Motor.

Also, that drag race between the eagle and gt 86 must have been aimed at idiots. Of course the jag was going to munch it. It’s a 4.7L (V6 or 8, I wasn’t listening) against a 2L 4cylinder.

I also bet £50,000 that there will be at least 3 posts asking for the stream and at least 1 asking why it’s paid when it does come.
