Series: Top Gear / Season 22 Episode 7
In this week’s programme, James May is taken far outside his comfort zone as he straps into an incredibly fast, highly tuned, 600 horsepower hatchback and is thrown into the most exciting new form of motor sport around right now: World Rallycross racing.
As well as trying to fend off a pack of top-flight professional drivers, James’s life is made harder by his support crew, the distinctively unsupportive Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond. Top Gear USA host Tanner Foust, an ace Rallycross driver, teams up with James to help save him from massive indignity.
Jeremy is at the track in the latest Jaguar F-type R and a sensational, modernised E-type called the Eagle Low Drag GT, while Richard is in Spain to test the brand-new version of the legendary Mazda MX-5.
Finally, Brit Pack acting star Nicholas Hoult tries his hand in the Reasonably Priced Car.
