Amazon startet heute, am November , mit der Fortsetzung der Kult-Serie ". Ludwigsburg Fans des TV-Automobilklassikers "Top Gear" können es kaum erwarten, am Freitag startet mit "The Grand Tour" der Nachfolger. - Der „Top Gear”-Nachfolger „The Grand Tour” von Amazon Prime macht im Rahmen der laufenden Dreharbeiten auch in Stuttgart Halt. Würdiger Nachfolger. The Grand Tour ist eine würdige Nachfolgerin der BCC Fernsehsendung "Top Gear" mit Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond und James. Am Rande: "Top Gear"-Nachfolger bei Amazon Prime. Die britischen TV-Legenden (v.l.) James May, Jeremy Clarkson und Richard Hammond haben sich für.
When the points were tallied up, May won easily due to his car being in the best condition so having the lowest restoration cost. Clarkson narrowly beat Hammond to second place as his far higher restoration cost was marginally outweighed by Hammond's numerous thousand-point deductions.
This led Clarkson to conclude two things: 'all identical cars aren't necessarily identical' and 'Richard Hammond, who buys more used cars than any man alive, is useless at buying used cars'.
Challenges included a drag race which Hammond lost badly, a dyno run, which showed Hammond having bhp against the original bhp, and Clarkson with versus , and a return to the forensics lab to establish what contaminants were present in the cars.
The forensics test is usually edited out on repeats. Back in the studio May criticised the two for eschewing the reliable, economical and practical Pixo, saying he was prepared "to bet his hair" that within two weeks one of the two cars would require expensive servicing or repairs.
Later in the series May was proved correct when Clarkson's Mercedes broke down and he had to spend several thousand pounds fixing the engine's injectors.
Jeremy bought a Jaguar XJS 4. As in previous challenges, a backup car was also present, a Austin Allegro. Challenges included bringing Western-themed goods with their cars and building a stall to promote them, A mountain rally and modifying their cars to be better able to tackle the dangerous mountain roads.
All Winners. The three criticise the sheer amount of money people have to spend just to play golf, and they claimed that you can invest less money in car racing, or in this case, rallycross.
To prove this, each of the presenters must find a cheap, race-worthy car and modify it so it can be race-ready. Hammond was the most successful of the three, finishing third in two heats and coming second in the final, ahead of Clarkson.
Meanwhile, May was the least successful, finishing last in two heats and third in the 'loser's final'. The Backup car was a Ford Scorpio , a car loathed by all three.
The starting point was a small town in Uganda. After travelling to Lake Victoria , generally considered to be the source of the Nile, the guys reasoned that as Victoria is fed by many other tributaries , one of those must be the true source.
After spending the night at an unhygienic hotel the guys decided to convert their cars into 'mobile homes'. Hammond installed a kitchen, Clarkson a cool box full of beer, and a toilet on the outside of his car.
May fitted a library at the front of his car, and a workshop complete with tools at the rear. All of them also installed some sort of bed. After a long drive through Africa, which showed that Hammond made a clever choice with his all wheel drive Subaru, the guys had to cross a wide river, and built a raft to convey their cars.
All three made it across safely, but the producers lost the Scorpio after it fell off the raft and into the river.
During the journey as each presenter's car suffered and broke down they stole bits from each others cars to carry on. Eventually Hammond's car broke a wishbone and had to weld it back together in order to finish the challenge.
Near the end of the challenge, the guys were informed that only one presenter could find the source and get his name in the history books, so each raced to where they suspected the source would be.
Despite Hammond making best progress thanks to his AWD , May was the first to find the true source of the Nile, making him the winner.
They were sent out to buy any hot hatchback from their youth - specifically the s. Challenges faced included a hill climb during the return trip, Hammond crashed his Nova, setting up a running joke throughout the challenge, a "supermarket sweep" gymkhana event through a closed supermarket, with Hammond again finishing on his side , and a drag race, in which Hammond critically damaged his car's engine after accidentally changing from second gear into first instead of third.
Hammond was caught instantly due to his damaged engine, while both Clarkson and May had their cars destroyed after long drawn out pursuits.
In the end the presenters decided that as all their cars had won an individual event, all three were the winners.
The three presenters find themselves travelling out to Burma for a road trip to Thailand and the River Kwai, each taking with them a second-hand lorry that they will use to build a bridge over it - Clarkson buys an Isuzu TX that has an extensive stereo setup in the cab and a dumper truck layout in the back, Hammond purchases another Isuzu TX, but modified with extensive space for carrying large volume loads, while May acquires a Hino FB with a crane on the back.
Starting their journey in the country's old capital of Rangoon, they continue through Naypyidaw, before crossing into Thailand.
They are challenged with building a bridge across the River Kwai , then driving over it with their trucks, but realise when constructing the bridge that they are actually at the River Kok.
The men decide to improve ambulances. Initially, they modify a P45 Series 19, Episode 1 with a flashing beacon and a gurney which attaches to a rear-mounted hitch, but this fails when the gurney jackknifes and ejects the patient.
The producers then instruct the presenters to 'do it properly', and each buy an alternative to the standard ambulance used by the NHS a Mercedes Sprinter , with their choices being tested in a series of challenges.
Clarkson bought a Porsche Turbo , with the idea that the patient could be stowed under the all-glass hatchback; Hammond points out that the patient would bake in the tight, glass-enclosed space.
May bought a Ford Scorpio Cardinal hearse which was initially mocked by the others, despite May pointing out the potent Cosworth -designed V6 engine and traction control.
The trio are told to buy affordable classics and report with them to an old railway station in Buckinghamshire. There, they are told they must live like classic car enthusiasts.
Clarkson arrives next in a Fiat Spider which he admits is incredibly pretty but predicts it will go wrong all the time like all classic cars.
He also bemoans the fact that it is an American specification vehicle with 5-mph bumpers, raised ride height, and oversized aftermarket wheels, giving it poor handling.
Finally, May arrives in a Peugeot S Cabriolet which arrives already broken down. The trio are challenged to 'tinker' with their cars, with May simply fixing his so it works and adding continental yellow headlamps, Clarkson returning his to its original European specification and having an epiphany as he did so , while Hammond gave his MGB sporting credentials with a new exhaust, bucket seats and a sporty paint scheme.
Both cars suffer badly during the Japfest race, and are on the verge of breaking down - which Clarkson's eventually does leaving Hammond the winner by default.
Hammond expected to be part of the aerial display, and was made to take part in a Wing walking demonstration during which he spent most of the time screaming.
Challenges include a snow slope climbing test where Hammond failed to engage his 4WD , a game of tag with caravans hitched to their cars and featuring 'Leisure Stig' in a Kia Sportage, a acceleration and braking test at a muddy test area with 'Leisure Stig' setting the benchmark in the Sportage, which May failed to complete, and drove into a muddy pond, modifying their own cars to suit the lifestyle theme better and doing some 'leisure activity' at a nearby pond, rolling their cars down a steep cliff to test the car's robustness and safety, and a five-mile-long off-road race from a Yorkshire grouse moor to a conference and dinner held at Yorkshire's Broughton Hall, where the last to arrive had to do an after-dinner speech.
During the race, James was initially left far behind, but caught up later due to his finding a farm track that enabled him to overtake Clarkson and Hammond, who were bogged down.
Hammond eventually freed himself from the mud, and Clarkson, upset for not being able to climb the riverbank after fording a small river, had to cut the Frontera in half.
Eventually, Hammond had to deliver the after dinner speech, which didn't please the crowds. This challenge was the last completed by Clarkson, Hammond and May.
Loser: Hammond. The presenters raced against each other with Eddie boarding the Orient Express from London to Venice. On the way, Matt, Evans and Sabine were presented with a challenge: pick a Michelin star chef in Paris and allow them to prepare food to be presented at a chateau along the way.
Evans and Sabine found the challenge to be a relatively easy one, since their cars' cabin space allow the chef to prepare the food and the heat from their cars' engine and from the exhaust pipes in Evans' case allowed the food to be cooked along the way.
Matt, however, had to make several stops to allow his chef to prepare and cook the food, slowing down his progress. Sabine was declared winner of this challenge.
During the next leg, Matt was hindered by his motorcycle's small fuel tank, and Sabine ran out of money, forcing her to reach the destination on foot.
Evans on the other hand had enough money left from his purchase to hire a water taxi until Venice's water speed limit hindered him.
Eddie made it first to the finish, joined by Sabine, and soon after Evans. Matt was still on the road, but he believed himself to be in the lead.
Once back in the studio Evans, Sabine and Matt pointed out that they still had their vehicles although Matt decided to sell his Goldwing, while all Eddie had as a souvenir was a pair of spoons from the train.
Winner: Eddie. Matt, Rory, and Chris were instructed to buy a car with at least , miles on the clock - a distance equal to driving to the Moon and back.
They were told to report to Kazakhstan, where they were to drive to the Baikonur Cosmodrome. During the first part of the challenge, they raced against each other at a quarry, with Chris crashing into Matt, then heading to Kyzylorda to participate in a game of auto-tag against locals in Lada Rivas.
The next morning, Matt fitted a custom crash bar made out of steel pipes to protect his damaged back end, and Rory set a challenge of who can reach the closest top speed to its original factory claims.
The final challenge was to see who could log the most miles from the starting point to Baikonur with a condition: only the winner can attend the launch event, and the losing cars will be subjected to 'hard labour'.
In preparation, Matt stripped the Mercedes to make it quicker, Chris repainted the Volvo so it resembled the Volvo BTCC and installed a 'high-mileage fuel tank' - a gallon oil drum - while Rory did nothing to his London black cab.
Matt returned to a salt bed he previously passed through where his silencer and makeshift crash bar fell off , Chris went into town to look for an airfield to race around, while Rory jacked up the back wheels of his cab and put it in gear so as to run up easy miles.
While refuelling he knocked the jacks and the car drove off by itself, before beaching on a dune. At the cosmodrome the results were announced: Chris did miles, Matt did miles, Rory did miles, and the losing cars were turned into taxicabs by locals.
At the end of the show, Rory showed that his black cab had been mounted on a plinth beside the Buran spacecraft at the cosmodrome.
Winner: Rory. Arriving at the first stop in a small town called Coliseo, Rory bragged about his Chevrolet V8 that was quickly recognised by the locals, compared to Chris' Maserati.
Next, they headed to Varadero to see the local racing scene, where, along the way, Rory decided to allow locals to hitch a ride in their cars, much to his fear as one of his passengers brought a chicken inside.
Upon arriving in Varadero, Rory and Chris decided to race the locals in a drag race, where both of them lost in a considerably large gap.
Afterwards, they raced each other, where Rory claimed a "moral victory" due to his Camaro winning the locals' hearts thanks to the car's V8 engine.
In the final part of the trip, both returned to Varadero to have a rematch with local street racers, only this time, they race in a makeshift oval track made using used tyres.
After the grid's drawn through a drawing of straws, where Chris started second to last. During the race, Chris made a significant progress due to his agile Maserati, eventually winning the race.
Winner: Chris. Their first challenge was to do a two lap race in the Gunsai Touge while carrying sumo wrestler as a passenger, which Chris won.
Next, they head to Fukushima to reminisce the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. Afterwards, they head to the Ebisu Circuit to receive the next challenge: drifting against local drifters in Kei trucks.
In order to aid the presenters to do tandem drifts, both cars' rear tires were swapped with space-saver spare tires and tied using a rope and secured with a pair of used tires.
However, near the finish line, one of the tires blew up, damaging both cars. Then, the final challenge arrived: racing to Enbu to reach the transport, as there can only be one car that can be transported back to Britain.
Matt and Chris go separate ways: Matt tried the highway approach, where he got stuck at a tollbooth, while Chris decided to take the mountain pass and the backroads, where he had to deal with local traffic.
Chris won the race by a small margin, however, back in the UK, his RX-7 didn't get a profitable offer. For the first challenge, the presenters head to the track for a top speed drag race.
In this challenge, Rory scored 70 mph, Matt scored mph, while Chris scored mph. Next, the presenters are faced with a series of challenges, beginning with a beat-the-clock challenge in a simulated urban driving environment against The Stig in the Sandero, where Matt's Bentley suffered a breakdown and Rory wrecking the market square part of the course.
Afterwards, to test if the cars can still run straight and true like when they were new, the cars were put on a "no-hands" drag race against the Sandero, where all of the used cars failed the challenge.
Then, the presenters are instructed to do a pursuit race against the Sandero in a single lap of the track, preceded by a dyno run to measure how far will the cars have to be behind the Sandero.
At the rolling road, Rory's Rolls-Royce scored This makes Rory has to start 87 meters behind the Sandero, followed by Matt at meters behind the Sandero, and Chris at meters behind the Sandero, however, Matt's Bentley refused to start at this point.
The Sandero won again this time, out-gripping both the cars. As a final challenge, the presenters have to participate in a six-hour endurance race the Birkett 6 hour relay race at Silverstone, with the Sandero as a backup car.
Initially, Chris made a good progress, managing to catch up a considerable number of cars at the early stages of the race.
However, he soon had to pit due to his Mercedes running out of fuel, and Matt's hastily refurbished Bentley didn't make much progress due to him having no time to address the car's brakes.
Rory didn't fare much better, as his Rolls-Royce lacking grip, slow, having no working gauges, and poor fuel consumption. In the middle of the race, Chris' Mercedes lost one of its wheels, causing a considerable damage to its running gear.
Later on the race, due to all of the cars terminally damaged, Chris was forced to use the race-prepped Sandero.
In a last ditch attempt, Matt's Bentley received a brake caliper donor from Rory's Rolls-Royce to address the Bentley's failing brakes and enabling them to reach the second-to-last position that they've aimed for.
The presenters set off on a journey from the city of Gondar to the Afar Triangle , a place thought to be the birthplace of humankind.
On their way, Freddie revealed that his Porsche wasn't in the best mechanical condition, with a faulty roof, overheating and clutch issues, while Paddy and Chris were pleased with their choices.
The first challenge was a compilation of rally-style driving tests done in a quarry where despite cheating from all presenters Chris and Paddy completed the course, with Chris claiming a moral victory over Paddy, while the Boxster failed to complete after getting beached.
Mishaps on the way to Dallol included a flat tyre for Paddy and Freddie's Boxster overheating so needing a tow from Paddy. The next challenge was a blindfolded acceleration and braking test, with the aim to be as close to a traffic cone at the end of a runway.
The extreme heat prompted Freddie to cut his Porsche roof off, while Chris suffered a heat stroke and had to stop to recover. The conditions damaged both Freddie and Chris' cars, causing Freddie to lose his extra cooling fans, and Chris had his first mechanical breakdown of the journey.
Winner: Paddy. With electric cars gaining popularity in recent years, the presenters are tasked to build electric sports cars on a budget.
Chris bought a Triumph Spitfire that he modified with BMW i3 batteries and electric motor that produced hp. Paddy acquired a Nissan Leaf that he visually modify, while Freddie settles for a Subaru BRAT that had its engine retrofitted with Tesla's electric motor, putting out hp and dubbed "Mute".
Taking place at the disused Ironbridge power stations complex in Telford , their first challenge is a timed lap around the power stations complex.
Freddie went first and clocked 1 minute and Afterwards, they head for the open road and go to Tamworth.
However, Paddy's Leaf ran out of range, prompting him to search for someplace to charge his car. Along the way, the presenters managed to find places to charge their cars: Paddy charged his Leaf at a local neighborhood, while Chris and Freddie charged theirs at the local service station; Paddy's method of charging leaving him hours behind schedule.
Over at Tamworth, their next challenge is a handling test based on the classic buzz wire children's game at the Daytona Tamworth go kart track, where each presenter will receive electric shock if they nudge the barriers.
Paddy went first, followed by Chris and Freddie; the challenge was won by Freddie. Next, they return to Telford to see if their cars can garner enough publicity at the Energy and Rural Business Show, judged by the number of likes received by each presenter.
Freddie, being a former athlete, sets a gimmick where he runs on a treadmill to charge his Subaru, while Paddy staged a raffle and Chris went outside to set a small gymkhana course for his Triumph.
Paddy won the challenge, scoring likes dubbed as "green smiley faces". After the expo, the presenters make their way to Mansfield. On their way, Freddie revealed that he still kept the BRAT's original petrol engine to beat the range anxiety.
Their challenge at the city is an endurance race dubbed "24 Minutes of Mansfield", putting their electric cars against some of the latest electric cars on sale.
Despite his early lead, Paddy only scored 15 laps, fewer than Chris and Freddie's 18 laps respectively; Paddy revealed that all of their cars were outperformed by the much newer rivals.
Paddy and Freddie are tasked to find cheap and rare cars and report to Borneo to do a series of challenges. They were tasked to go from the local airfield to Brunei "until they can drive no more".
Along the way, the presenters have to navigate arduous jungle terrain, which damaged Paddy's Matra, while Freddie's Austin fared better.
By nightfall, their trip was temporarily halted by British Army's Royal Gurkha Rifles ' 2nd Battalion, who provided necessary assistance to navigate the jungle to their final destination: presenting their cars before the Sultan of Brunei.
During the night, Freddie decided to modify the Austin to better cope with the jungle condition. For the second leg of their journey, Paddy decided to part ways with Freddie and followed a logging track which led his party to a nearby river, using makeshift rafts to transport the Matra through the river; on the other hand, Freddie's party managed to clear the jungle and found smooth tarmac road after Paddy departed for the river.
The final leg of the trip is a 40 mile race to Bandar Seri Begawan. While Freddie managed to make good progress through tarmac road, Paddy's river approach puts him closer to the finish line, despite him having to navigate gravel tracks before finding smooth tarmac.
While on the highway, Freddie's Austin overheated, giving Paddy an advantage. Despite the setback, Freddie managed to arrive at the palace earlier than Paddy; however, they were declined entry to the palace.
Winner: Freddie after final deliberation by Chris. They are instructed to drive from Kathmandu to Lo Manthang. While leaving Kathmandu and heading to Pokhara , Paddy got stuck and had to be towed by Freddie, revealing that the Mustang was only two wheel drive.
On the way to Jomsom , rough roads damaged both Chris and Paddy's cars to the degree where the Peugeot required garage repairs prompting the presenters to stay the night instead of travelling on.
The next morning on the road Paddy's Peugeot got stuck again, once again being towed by Freddie. During a river crossing, both Chris and Paddy got stuck so Freddie had to tow both of them out each time.
In order to prepare for the final leg of the journey, the presenters split up: Chris and Freddie went to purchase trekking equipment, while Paddy heads to the local market to buy necessary rations.
After this they had to give locals a lift to Muktinath Temple. Freddie some sherpas, Paddy local women, and Chris some holy men. Nearing the temple, the trio decided had a hillclimb challenge, with the finishing line set at the temple's car park.
Despite a 30 second head start, Paddy overtook both Chris and Freddie and reached the temple first. From the temple, they resume their journey to Lo Manthang, a distance of 40 miles.
At the high altitude the Mustang had to tow the other cars at various times. While trying to start Paddy's car, Chris forgot to apply his handbrake and his car rolled back and tipped over, damaging it beyond repair, meaning he had to car share with Freddie.
Both surviving cars made it to Lo Manthang where Paddy's Peugeot passed the city gateway with a very small margin and the Hulas being unable to clear it.
They were told to report to Bognor Regis before heading for Essex for a road trip. Early on their trip, Freddie discovered that his Chrysler has no power steering, which makes matters worse in roundabouts.
Their first stop was at Thruxton Circuit for their first challenge: driving around the track against "summer holiday traffic" before being overtaken by The Stig in a Ford Mustang convertible.
Freddie barely got started before retiring due to a puncture, while Paddy managed to survive longer before being overtaken by The Stig.
Chris on the other hand, nearly made it to the finish line. They then drove 20 miles to a motocross track for their next challenge: timed lap challenge while their cars are rigged with " low friction, synthetic sweat substitute " to simulate moist conditions caused by sweating.
Paddy, who went first, only managed to do 42 yards before crashing his Escort, Chris managed to do a full lap in 1 minute and 45 seconds, while Freddie completed the course in 1 minute and 48 seconds.
Paddy restarted and managed to do the course in 1 minute and 36 seconds. Afterwards, Freddie's Chrysler suffered from overheating issues, forcing Paddy to tow him to their next stop: a driving range.
There, the presenters are faced with a test of "agility": driving around the range and catch as many golf balls as they can in two minutes.
Freddie went first, where his Chrysler caught 9 golf balls. Paddy was next, where he managed to catch 38 golf balls. Lastly, it was Chris' turn, where he ended the day with 16 golf balls.
The next day, they are met with their next challenge: going through a causeway during high tide, which Paddy managed to do without much trouble.
Chris decided to go right after Paddy, but his SLK's engine cut out early on, prompting Freddie to push him for a good part of the challenge, until his Chrysler was beached near the finish line.
Freddie admitted that his car was the worst of the three, while he and Chris noted that this was the second time Paddy had won a challenge using a Ford Escort.
Chris purchased a Dodge Dart , Freddie bought a Volkswagen Bus , while Paddy went for a second-generation Pontiac Firebird that had its roof chopped off.
They are tasked to go from Cusco to the Vilcabamba mountains , tracing the road networks made by Inca people. A short while from the start, Paddy and Chris had to deal with their cars' problems: the Pontiac's overheating problems as well as obvious lack of roof and the Dodge's sketchy brakes and barely-functioning wipers.
During their trip, the presenters found an empty stretch of road and proceeded to do a drag race; however, Paddy cannot join because his Pontiac's rear axle came loose, much to Chris and Freddie's amusement.
The following morning, the presenters continue their trip from Ollantaytambo , now with Paddy managing to acquire a new car: a fourth-generation Oldsmobile Cutlass that he bought from an American car meet the day before.
At the local market, the presenters decided to do drive-thru shopping: Chris bought some fruits and vegetables, Freddie purchased a bunch of flowers as his Bus' decoration, while Paddy bought two wooden phalluses.
Their next stop after Ollantaytambo is the Abra Malaga mountain pass, where the presenters enjoy the mountain pass' excellent view and smooth road.
On their third day, the presenters went for a stop to check the local "motorcar cross" scene: a dirt track racing involving a three-wheeled motorcycle manned by two people, a rider and a passenger.
Chris, being a professional racing driver himself, went first, followed by Paddy and Freddie. Upon leaving the dirt track racing scene, the presenters are faced with a challenge: reach the Abra Yanama mountain pass, notable for being one of the most dangerous roads in the world, having an unpaved surface and located at a height of more than 4, meters above sea level.
Along the journey, Freddie put his Bus' "secret weapon" to use: an electrolysis kit installed to the Bus to help supplying the engine with fresh oxygen, supplementing performance, while Paddy and Chris suffered some damages; Chris' Dodge lost its clutch, prompting him to abandon the car, while Paddy's Oldsmobile blew a fuse causing its horn to ring at times and had its driver side door removed.
Freddie's declared the winner, as his Volkswagen Bus lasted from the start to finish. Winner: Freddie. Considering that insurance write-offs may be a good way to purchase interesting cars on the cheap, the presenters set off to find performance cars that have been written off by insurance companies and meet at the track.
Their first test is an acceleration test to test for mechanical soundness. Paddy initially took the lead, but he ran out of runway and got himself beached.
He managed to reach Next, they have to play a game of musical chairs in a simulated car park to test for low-speed agility against some Toyota Prius driven by The Stig 's teenage cousins.
Paddy got eliminated first, putting Chris against Freddie all the way to final round, which was won by Freddie; Chris veered off the track after he got nudged by Freddie.
Lawrence Dallaglio. Hammond has come up with a new, wildly destructive motorsport - "motorhome racing". With a selection of motorhomes driven by himself, some touring car drivers and May, the race is on at the Essex Raceway to see which will come in a winner.
There's a look at a super-sized new German motorhome called "The Performance" with a "piece-de-resistance" - a car in its cargo space - and very luxurious interiors, and English international rugby star Lawrence Dallaglio seeks to post a fast time with the reasonably priced car.
Aston Martin DBS. Jennifer Saunders. In a series of challenges designed to prove their cars are useless, as well as giving them opportunities to recoup the money they've spent, the team first visit the former factories the cars were built in, before visiting the MIRA , where they see if their cars can be faster than a Datsun Y , can park on a steep hill with the handbrake on, and get messy as they test ride comfort.
Then as a final challenge, the boys return to the Top Gear Test Track to drive underwater in their cars, to find out how well built they are and how fast they can be around the track, with one car outshining the lot.
Jennifer Saunders' segment was completely removed from Australian editions of this episode, and from Australian DVDs, although her name remains in the credits.
Clarkson and May drive around in some very old cars, as they look back at the complex layouts they had before finding the first car that had the control layout that would be a staple in all cars right up to the present.
Finally, James Blunt is the latest star in the Lacetti as he takes on a wet track, while Lewis Hamilton takes the Liana around the track. BMX riders through Budapest.
Keith Allen. The bio-fuel crop has been harvested, but the presenters discover they've got gallons worth of bio-diesel thanks to May buying the wrong seed.
To dispose of it, they decide to enter the Britcar 24 hour endurance race at Silverstone Circuit , despite not being experienced with racing, all while using a modified BMW d that Hammond and Clarkson worked on.
With help from The Stig, the boys find out just how tough an endurance race is as they deal with mechanical problems, trouble with qualifying, tiredness, and an accident that could spell curtains on them making it to the end.
Meanwhile, May is in Budapest in the new Fiat to see if he can win a race with some youths on BMX bikes, while Clarkson is told not to test any more supercars for the rest of the series, so he sees how the Daihatsu Materia hatchback is by comparing it to a "close" rival - the new Ascari A Finally, Keith Allen faces the wettest day on record according to the Stig when he took to the track in the Lacetti.
A look back at some of the best moments from Series 10, including the search for the World's greatest driving road. A second look back at some of the best moments from Series 10, including the race between the Bugatti Veyron and the Eurofighter jet.
