Clarkson is testing out the Audi Q7 V12 TDI, the BMW X5 M and a new Range Rover (2010MY) to find which he loves best, before dealing with another letter demanding another “thorough” road test by heading to Belfast and seeing how good the Renaultsport Twingo 133 is. Meanwhile, Hammond is at “Heathrow” to solve the problems caused by slow airport staff, to see if motorsport and a group of touring drivers can find out whether a catering truck, the mobile stairs, an articulated shuttle bus, a baggage train, an aircraft tug or an airport fire truck will become the basis for all airport vehicles in future, while Guy Ritchie is on the test track as the latest star to get around it in the Lacetti.
Note: Hammond’s ‘Airport Motorsport’ film was originally intended for Series 13, but for unknown reasons it was postponed until this series.
