    Hey guys, I got this idea from the Burn Notice forum site. So first I would like to give credit to TheMawk89 for coming up with the idea.

    The rules are simple. A question is posted. You then correctly answer the question then post a question of your own and so on.

    I'll post the first question and I'll be nice to start of with and post an easy one.

    What is the name of the car that caused to Jeremy Clarkson to eat his own hair in an omelet?

    The dreaded Vauxhall Astra. Incidentally, the omlette looked exactly the same as Top Gear dog's vomit in the caravan episode.

    Question: In which country was Richard struck by lightning?

    It was Germany. The Siemans High Voltage Lab in Berlin.

    The TVR Tuscan beat the speed camera. The Honda Civic Type R and Mercedes-Benz CL55 AMG failed to do it.

    Question: What is the name of the road the Top Gear team did road works on?

    I pretty sure the fastest overall lap was set by the Renault F1 car at 59 seconds.

    What car made Richard Hammond so embarrassed to drive that he had to put a paper-bag on his head when driving?

    The time was 9:59.

    What car did Jeremy Clarkson say that if it had a CVT gearbox would sound like they were filming an episode of Bonanza under the bonnet?

    As long as you get the L.F.C. bit right, I don't mind.

    Question: In the 'Porsche challenge', Jeremy wrote an advert for a lonely hearts column; he said he liked to read books with pictures of what on the cover?
