Top Gear

Series 19 - Episode 3



One of the drawbacks of Top Gear having run so long and pulled off so many stunts in its time is that many new items tend to feel like re-heated versions of ideas we’ve seen before. Which makes you wonder how the show will breathe new life into the car v train ruse, as Jeremy Clarkson sets off across Europe on a race to Milan against his co-presenters, who must make the journey by rail. We have to hope it finds a way and ensures that the tradition of nail-bitingly close finishes is maintained.

Back in Surrey, Clarkson and singer/songwriter Amy MacDonald are both on the test-track: he to test a Toyota GT86 and she in the Reasonably Priced Car.


Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May embark on a race from London's Wembley Stadium to Milan's San Siro, the home of Italian football giants AC and Inter. A price restriction leads Jeremy to grab the keys to a Shelby Mustang GT500, which costs the equivalent of £35,000 in America and packs a supercharged punch of more than 650bhp. James and Richard pin their hopes on the pan-European rail network in a bid to secure the prize of tickets to a top-flight football match, with nothing but a long journey home awaiting the losers. On the test track, Jeremy puts Toyota's GT86 coupe through its paces, and its promise of entertaining rear-wheel-drive handling should put a smile on his face. Plus, singer-songwriter Amy Macdonald gets to grips with the Reasonably Priced Car.
