Clarkson is in a race against “God”, as he sets off from England’s westernmost point at Land’s End, Cornwall in a Jaguar XJ 5.0 V8 Supersport at sunset, and attempts to get to its most easternly point at Ness Point, Suffolk, before sunrise on the shortest night of Summer. Meanwhile, Hammond takes a look at his childhood heroes the Porsche 959 and the Ferrari F40, May gets to drive the Space Exploration Vehicle from NASA, and John Prescott arrives in a chorus of boos as he sees how he fared in the reasonably priced car.
