    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Jeremy Clarkson: Some say that he breaks into people's houses at night and leaves two mysterious extra keys in a kitchen drawer. And that as a result of buying Pirelli condoms this week, he now has 17 children. All we know is he's called the Stig.

      • Richard Hammond: No cabbie in the world has to go through an ordeal as fearsome as The Knowledge, which requires that all London taxi drivers memorise 25,000 streets. The test is so tough, in fact, cabbies develop an extra large hippocampus, which is the area of the brain associated with memory, navigation and views on immigration.

      • Jeremy Clarkson: We have everything we need: huge scenery, swooping road, no traffic. The Holy Trinity for anyone whose communion wine comes with an octane rating.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • This is Hertfordshire. it's just 40 miles from London and it's motoring nirvana.


        Jeremy was, of course, driving the Ferrari F12 in Scotland, which is 459 miles from London and motoring nirvana.

      • The Knowledge.


        'The Knowledge' is the name given to the test all aspiring taxi drivers (in London) must pass in order to obtain a licence to operate. The test was introduced in 1865.
