Episode Summary


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.
