Clarkson sees if he can save an old school playground game with cars, by going to a British Army testing area in Dorset and taking on an array of new military hardware, including a Jackal, Mastiff PPV and a Trojan combat engineering vehicle, in a point-to-point race with a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII RS, while Hammond and May see if the new Porsche Panamera can get from Porthloo in the Isles of Scilly to Birsay on the Orkney Isles faster than a letter being ferried and delivered by the Royal Mail. Elsewhere, the new Ford Focus RS is tested out with a race on the test against a Renault Mégane R26.R, and Usain Bolt attempts to prove that he can be fast in the Lacetti as he is with his feet.
