Episode Summary


Finland has produced some of the finest drivers in both Formula 1 and rallying. James travels to the country and meets Mika Häkkinen to try to find out why this is so. Richard travels farther afield - to Japan - to drive the Toyota iReal which is not so much a car, as a chair with wheels.

This week's challenge is to try and make a second-hand car lap the track faster than a Mitsubishi 300. The (second-hand) car in question is the distinctively unsporty Renault Avantime.

Jeremy finds a new use for a V8 engine; he thinks it will provide a suitable amount of power for a food blender.

Benefiting from the suspension of Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, Top Gear gives Mark Wahlberg a place to plug stuff and a go in the Reasonably Priced Car.
