    The lads are in Lillehammer for their version of the Winter Olympics. So expect amongst other things: car ice-hockey with Suzuki Swifts, Jeremy trying to drive the new Jaguar XK around the ice rink faster than a speed skater and Stig riding a snowmobile down the ski-jump. James and Jeremy compete against each other in a biathlon using an Audi Q7 and a Volvo XC90, with the loser having to eat yellow snow.

    There's also a spectacular attempt to send a rocket-powered Mini down the ski-jump.

    Richard races the new Mazda MX5, worth £18,000, against a greyhound worth £25,000. Jeremy compares driving a Honda NSX around Laguna Seca in a video game to the real thing. The Austin Healy Sprite and modified Peugeot 306 go head-to-head on the Prescott Hill Climb course to see which is best and there's the Top Gear Awards, where James is awarded the Golden Cock.

    James and Richard are once again trying to beat Jeremy in another of their now famous races. This time, the race is on to see who will be the first to get from Alba in northern Italy, to the NatWest Tower in London. James and Richard are in a light aircraft piloted by James - Jeremy has to make-do with a Bugatti Veyron.

    Yet another new Porsche - this time it's the Carrera 911 4 - a four-wheel drive Porsche. James, with help from the Stig, finds out if it is faster than the rear-wheel drive 911 using a track set up inside the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff as part of a special stage of the British leg of the World Rally championship.

    Former F1 and Indycar World Champion Nigel Mansell gets the chance to set a fast lap in the Liana.

    This week, the challenge is to try and buy a 'decent' mid-engined supercar for under £10,000. Richard drives the Marcos TSO GT2 and there's a race through Lisbon between a car and a mountain bike.

    Dame Ellen MacArthur is this week's Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.

    The boys are off on a continental road trip to visit the Millau Viaduct in France. To make the journey more pleasant, each of them has chosen to travel in their favourite supercar. Richard drives a Pagani Zonda, James drives a Ferrari F430 and Jeremy drives his own Ford GT.

    Jeremy also drives the 'air-hostess orange' Focus ST on the track.

    A challenge is set to see which is fastest: a rock climber or an Audi RS4. The new Porsche Cayman S is reviewed and as part of a feature on the history of British Racing Green, Richard drives a Vanwall - a recreation of the 1958 car that won the 1958 world championship.

    James and Richard turn their attention to radio-controlled cars and there's a rather special Vauxhall Astra VXR in the studio, but why is it worth £60,000?

    Which is the better car? The Aston Martin V8 Vantage, the Porsche 911 Carrera S or the new BMW M6? To find out, the boys take all three cars to the Isle of Man and test them on the island's country roads, where there is no speed limit [unlike in the built up areas of the island].

    Richard drives the Ascari KZ1 - a British-made supercar - to see if it is worthy of entry to the exclusive 'super car club'. Actor Trevor Eve is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.
