Series 1 2002
The one with Stig cheating a speed camera
New TG kicks off by dodging a speed camera, racing a Lambo and a ZHonda around our new track and putting Harry Enfield in a ‘reasonably priced car'. All that, plus a little Citroen.
The one with A bus jumping some motorbikes
Our first big stunt – we attempt to clear a line of motorbikes with a double-decker. Clarkson drives a Noble, Richard gets gooey over a MkII Escort and Jay Kay visits us for the first time...2 Video Clips
The one with Grannies doing donuts
Can you teach your Nan to make proper donuts? We find out – and start our campaign to find the best looking car. Ross Kemp is our star and Richard races a Zonda in a kit car…3 Video Clips
The one with Damon Hill and the Aston
Top Gear’s long relationship with the Isle of Man begins as JC and Damon Hill test Aston against Ferrari. Steve Coogan laps our track while a Mondeo takes on the Germans...
The one with The budget Bond car
We build a Bond car for £500, Jonathan Ross stars in our reasonably priced Liana and Richard laps up some Maybach luxury. Jeremy, meanwhile, smokes a set of tyres on a Bentley Arnage…
The one with The grannies again
Donuts mastered, the grannies return to have a go at handbrake parking. Richard tests the BMW Z4, Jeremy moans about the hard ride in a Renault Vel Satis and Tara PT drives our Suzuki…

The one with Gambon corner
Michael Gambon nearly rolls our reasonably priced car and renames a corner on the TG track as a result. Lotus builds a Lada, Richard drives some hottish minis and a Maserati gets Stigged…
The one with The stripped-out Jaguar XJS
The boys find out how much faster a Jag is after a diet, while Gordon Ramsay melts our bleep machine after tasting food we cooked on a Subaru. We also race a car against a plane…
The one with The fastest faith. Again
More divine intervention on our track, plus our first telly awards and some pheasant shooting in a Range Rover. We also celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Lotus Esprit...
