Episode 3 was too good, the expressions mikka Hakkinen gives while teaching captian slow on how to power slide is awsome and the use of a super aguri rear wing on a renualt car to get a better lap time.

Finally got to see it last night. Good episode as usual. Loved the interview of Mika Hakkinen, where he answers only in monosyllables. Although I think that was done purposely.
Does one actually need to learn how to do a power slide before you can get a license in Finland?? If so, I wish I was born there!! What a country!
The Renault Avantime 'sounded' like it had a lot more mods to it than spoken about. Also in the last run, the exhaust was different.

.
although i haven't seen the episode yet, there might be a reason tht mika was talking monosyllables - heres a video (which it seems was cut out of final episode) of him talking about how he cried after the crash he had in Formula 1 Finn again - BBC Top Gear

Anyone watch Episode 4 yet?

There's some new records set at the end of the show. (Don't wanna spoil it for you guys yet)

Very good episode overall, and the race was simply amazing as ever.

Jezza found an exhaust of an old TVR. They put that in. See this video...

Episode 4 has not arrived completely. The anticipation is killing me.

Sujay, we wish we had your kind of connectivity here.
