Original air date: March 11, 2012
The trio show that you can have more fun by doing Rallycross motor racing for the same amount of money you could spend playing golf, with Clarkson racing in a BMW 328i, Hammond a Citroën Saxo VTS, and May a Toyota MR2. Elsewhere, Hammond takes a look at the new BMW M5 at the track, May gets his chance to see his childhood dream car, the £5.6 million Ferrari 250 GT California, at Chris Evans’ garage, while Kimi Räikkönen talks about his return to F1 before taking out the old Liana on the track, and Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash shows how good he is the current reasonably priced car.
Note: As it was the last episode of the series, Slash played out the show with his version of the Top Gear theme song, upon the Toyota Hilux plinth.
