Guy Martin takes his Wolverine hair and boyish grin to Nevada to take part in the world’s fastest road race. Competitors drive a 90-mile course on the majestic Highway 318 in flashy supercars, averaging 200mph. But Guy plans to enter something a bit different – his old black Transit van.
We follow a group of top mechanics as they turn his pride and joy into a high-spec supervan (“What a piece of kit!”), fitting a turbocharged engine and a slightly daft-looking rear wing. The trouble is, as with all the best TV challenges, they haven’t left themselves quite enough time to finish the job. And sixth gear doesn’t work.
The motorcycle racer competes in the Nevada Open Road Challenge, the fastest road race in the world, in which Highway 318 is closed to allow top of the line supercars to compete in time trials. Guy decides to make the challenge even greater by entering the contest in his Ford Transit van - but unfortunately, a crash has left the vehicle in need of some extensive repair work. He gathers a team of race engineers to rebuild the van and turn it into a racing machine capable of taking on some of the world's fastest cars.
