Main review:: Jeremy reviews the Vauxhall VXR8.
Challenge: Hammond drives the Renault R25 F1 car, the car that took both titles in the 2005 Formula One season season. He is to do two laps around Stowe Circuit at Silverstone. Richard stalls the car eight times before completing half a lap and then stalling again as he spins out from not going fast enough. The technicians warm the tyres and Richard sets off completing two laps around the track. James comments that the telemetry shows that Richard only hit full throttle in the car for 0.2 seconds.
Clarkson and May search for the first car to have the control layout that cars use today. After investigating many old cars with different control layouts, they name the first one to be the Cadillac Type 53 from 1916.
Star in a Reasonably Priced car: James Blunt appears first, posting a time of 1.48.3. Lewis Hamilton, driving, apparently quite casually, on a wet and oily track, then posts a time of 1.44.7 in the original Reasonably-Priced Car, the Suzuki Liana, which has been kept to be used by Formula One drivers. This placed him third overall on the F1 racers' board, with the same time as Jenson Button (although he did it on a dry track). His time is so impressive considering the conditions, being less than half a second behind the Stig's dry track time, that Clarkson demands to know how he'd managed it, then asks him to return at some point to post a time in dry conditions.
Review: Jeremy supervises a driverless BMW on a lap of the track. The time for the lap was not revealed.
