Episode Summary


Another epic race pits the car against public transport. Richard and James travel by aeroplane and train in an attempt to beat Jeremy, who is driving a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti to their destination at Verbier in Switzerland.

In Lillehammer, Richard and James are having another race with the help of the Norwegian Olympic Bobsleigh team: Richard tries to race down the bobsleigh track at Lillehammer, faster than James can travel down the road that runs along side the bobsleigh track. James is in a Mitsubishi Evo rally car driven by Henning Solberg.

Stig gets to take a F1 Renault around the track and old racing cars compete with modern road cars to see how fast they are. Eddie Izzard is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.
