Video: how we crashed a 370Z
Oh dear. That's not gone well, has it? The theory was all good for racing a Nissan 370Z at Castle Combe: drive our own long-term 370Z Roadster there, jump into the coupe racing car to see if we can inject a bit of manliness into the Nissan, go home proud.
We've been worried that this latest version of Nissan's Z car has gone a bit soft, so a proper race, against other proper racing cars, seemed like a perfect chance to test it. Except that TopGear magazine's Piers Ward got a bit too enthusiastic when he was testing out this theory of manliness. Watch the video below to see how he got on.
