Series 28 - Episode 1

Today 8:35pm - 9:35pm RTÉ2


As series 28 opens there’s no sign the car show with a death wish is slowing down. Last time out, Freddie Flintoff rolled over a souped-up hearse and thought he’d wiped out Paddy McGuinness. This time, it’s his own life on the line as Flintoff is guinea pig in one of the show’s crazier stunts: taking an old Rover Metro bungee jumping. Off a dam.

So the next six Sunday evenings won’t be dull, as Flintoff, McGuinness and Chris Harris revisit the treble-act that has put the show back on the road after the oversteer of the Evans/LeBlanc era.

Tonight’s opener includes a trip from Bognor Regis to Essex in cheap second-hand convertibles. (At one point, for reasons that will become clear, McGuinness dons a suit of armour.) And Harris drives the Ariel Atom, a new version of the car that once rearranged Jeremy Clarkson’s face.


Paddy McGuiness, Chris Harris and Freddie Flintoff go on a road trip in a trio of affordable second-hand convertibles. On the test track, Chris puts the new Ariel Atom through its paces, while Freddie goes bungee jumping off a dam in an old Rover.
