Features: May competes in a world rallycross race alongside Tanner Foust (U.S. Top Gear host).
Guest: Nicholas Hoult • Tanner Foust
Original air date: March 8, 2015
Clarkson heads to the track to look at the beauty of the new Jaguar F-Type R before seeing how it compares to a recreation of a one-off E Type racing prototype – the Eagle Low Drag GT. Elsewhere, Hammond heads to Humberside to tests out the Mazda MX-5, May heads to Lydden Hill Race Circuit to participate in the FIA World Rallycross Championship (with a little help from his fellow hosts) and finds himself competing against Top Gear USA host, Tanner Foust, and Nicholas Hoult talks about his role in the film Mad Max: Fury Road before seeing how he did as the latest star in the Vauxhall Astra.
Note: The series ended after this episode, following Clarkson’s suspension, and was subsequently the final appearance of Jeremy Clarkson as a presenter after the BBC dismissed him following its decision not to renew his contract with the show.
