    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Apparently, James doesn't keep his money in a bank. If he had insufficient funds to match a request for 5000 Norwegian Krone, this would mean that he had less than US$722, ₤500, or €564 in his account!

      • Unlike when he drove from San Francisco to Reno in Series 12, Episode 2, Jeremy was extremely fortunate when he claimed he was driving: "sixty ... -ish." The speed limit in Norway on limited-access motorways is 90 kph (55 mph) and police have the authority to impose on-the-spot fines.

      • The original plan was for Jeremy to drive a Vauxhall Astra to Oslo, instead of the Mercedes McLaren SLR. This, the producers thought, would make it a a bit more realistic for the viewer.


        The plan was changed when the producers realised that Clarkson would run out of things to say about the Astra before he made it to the M25 motorway, which circles London.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Jeremy Clarkson: Some say he naturally faces magnetic north. And that all his legs are hydraulic. All we know is, that he's called the Stig.

      • Richard Hammond: [slightly drunk and reluctant to dance with James] If you ask me to dance, I'll stab you.

      • Jeremy Clarkson: Tallest race on Earth now, the Dutch. Officially. Mind you they do take a lot of drugs. That's why they like Top Gear so much.

    • NOTES (2)

      • Stig's Lap Time:

        Aston Martin DBR9: 1.08.6

        This time does not feature on the power lap board, as cars must be road legal to qualify.

      • Star in a reasonably Priced Car Lap Time:

        David Dimbleby: 1.52

        David Dimbleby drives a 280SL, This makes him officially cool.
