The boys find themselves in a race against The Stig, as he tries to drive a Caterham Seven kit car from the Caterham’s base in Caterham, Surrey, to the start line of the Knockhill Racing Circuit in Scotland, while they try to get their first after building the same model as fast as they can in the pit garage at the circuit, and there are plenty of mishaps for them as they build their car. Meanwhile, Hammond and May try out three people carriers – the Ford S-MAX, the Mercedes-Benz B-Class, and the Vauxhall Zafira VXR – to see which is best, Clarkson tests out the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, there’s another race between May in a Peugeot 207 1.6L Diesel and two traceurs (masters of Parkour which involves running and leaping across/off buildings) across Liverpool, while Steve Coogan talks about hot tubs and Arnold Schwarzenegger after having a go in the Lacetti.
