Top Gear tonight – episode 2 of series 21 – features Hammond in the Alfa 4C, Clarkson in the McLaren P1, May in Camp Bastion and SIARPC is Tom Hiddleston.
Tonight sees the second episode of Top Gear’s 21st series, which sounds to be a lot more interesting than the less than captivating first episode of the new series last week.
Richard Hammond gets to go and play on the shores of Lake Como in Italy with a car we expect he’ll like very much – the new Alfa Romeo 4C.
Lots of twisty roads and a small but powerful 2-seater Alfa Romeo sound like a recipe for fun, but this is Top Gear so there’s a twist – Clarkson turns up to challenge Hammond in his 4C to a race with Clarkson on a quad bike. But this quad bike has a little amphibious trick up its sleeve.
Jeremy Clarkson also gets his own new toy to play with this week with time spent behind the wheel of the new McLaren P1 in Belgium – around Bruges and on the Spa-Francorchamps F1 track – where he’ll declare that the new McLaren P1, unsurprisingly, “…makes everything else look like the past”.
James May gets to join the UK forces in Camp Bastion this week (well, shown this week) as they prepare to repatriate – or dispose of – the vast quantities of vehicles and equipment taken to Afganhistan.
Finally, this week we also find out how fast Supervillian Loki is round the Top Gear track, as Thor star Tom Hiddleston tries his hand at being a Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.
Top Gear – Series 21 Episode 2 – is on BBC2 tonight at 8pm.
