I know its too much of an asking but its their Christmas special episode. Its gotta be an epic.
Sorry for correcting you but it was Hammond who did that test.I hope they show the Himalayas.

AFAIR , It was Richard Hammond who drove the LP670 across Abu Dhabi , which ended in a race between the LP and the McLaren SLR 722 .

Wow, you Mumbai guys seemed to have it all!

@Dippy, you lucky you! So, was there any conversation with Jezza? Did you happen to mention Team-BHP to them .

@RandomUsername: I agree with Akshay, how greedy can you get?

Would have loved to see if the MPEW featured in there somewhere.
So now we know what Hammond's challenge was. (Car faster than train etc). Wonder what JC and May were upto while the Hamster was busy ferrying Dabbas on his Mini.
There are huge amounts jibes at Indian motoring while they are at it. Even shows like Ice Road Truckers which is not very flattering about it.

6:22 and train number 12955! That confirms they are off to Jaipur. The train arrives there at 12:50 tomoro.

Hope someone catches them at Jaipur railway station while they are leaving, so us delhites could know about their arrival! .

So they must have arrived at Jaipur today at arnd 1 in the afternoon if they left on the 3rd.


P.S. forgot to take in consideration the time the pics above were posted.

Good Lord Clarkson is HUGE! Dippy looks so tiny in front him

This is awesome. Very sporting of the lads to go to Andheri station of all places where even a veteran of suburban Mumbai would hesitate to take a Premier Padmini let alone Jags and Minis!

Are they doing the expressway into Pune as well? Maybe we can wait for them here!

I can imagine what JC would comment about his train journey to Jaipur

I could not have imagined a more noisier place on earth...
The door was so narrow that I had to slide myself in...
The berths were as soft as a rock. I could not sleep a bit and was rolling like "<put some brit slang>" in the berth while the train was moving....
