Guy’s Garage: Episode 4 (S1EP4 Channel 4 Mon 13 Dec 2021)



In this episode, Guy takes on an East German Cold War icon. Slow, basic and underpowered, the Trabant became a symbol of communism in East Germany before the Berlin Wall came tumbling down.

After buying just about the only Trabant they could find in Britain, Guy and his mate Camy give it a punishing test drive around Guy’s garden, then set to work. The ace up their sleeve turns out to be a Belgian called Bart, one of Europe’s top Trabant racers.

After giving Guy a taste of what it’s like to race a Trabant, Bart sets Guy the challenge of taking part in an historic classic car race at Brands Hatch. After months of work, Guy’s Trabant is ready to roll. This will definitely be the slowest race Guy’s ever entered, in the slowest car he’s ever raced. Which means that, in the end, this will all be down to his driving skills in one final, high jeopardy, low-speed showdown.
