May doesnt go to Finland to find out why finns make such great racers, but to learn how to drive fast. He is going to test a supercar in next weeks episode - Rumoured to be the Veyron.

Episode 3 was great - The boys try and make a Renault Avantime as quick as an Evo 10 around the topgear track. They didnt succeed. But i did notice they made alot more modification to the car then they said they had. Star in a Resonably Priced Car was Mark Wahlber. He didnt do too badly. Supposedly wrote off a couple of cars. And of course James May was in finland learning how to drive fast. Mika Hakkinen was just great.

Luckily i get to watch it on Telly and dont have to wait to download it.

Killer episode!!

I'd hate to be born Finnish. 3 years to get your license?? Well, on the other hand, it does explain Kimi and Mika + 7 other WR Champs (who's names i do not know)

And that chair is WEIRD!! You'd be dead if you rode that around on our streets.

Sometime ago - Suzuki ( I think ) had done something similar - The Personal Mobility Thingy. The concept was that instead of buses with people standing, you would drive/roll...into something that looked like a people carrier. So one car/bus would carry about 8-10 of these things at a time. But can you imagine going home in that and a Volvo bus coming up behind you....

Note from Support: Please do not post direct links to torrents. This point has been mentioned before.

Guys, I am downloading episode 3, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May take on the challenge of making an ordinary second hand car lap the test track as fast as a brand new, purpose built sports saloon. Also, James travels to the frozen north to discover why the Finns are such good racing drivers. Meanwhile Richard hammers around the track in the outlandish Veritas sports car and Mark Wahlberg is the Hollywood Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.

Another solid episode.
"Will you make a bigger one for fat people?"

Also i was surprised at the choice of mods in the challenge, was expecting Jeremy to blow all the money trying to get more "Poweeerrrrrrrr".
