Video: behind-the-scenes at the first of the new series

Yes, series 16 proper is finally underway, and we hope you enjoyed what was a rather historic episode.

Two lap records were smashed by the Atom V8 and a Liverpudlian comedian, and the rapid pace of a Stig’s evolution was laid bare to the outside world for the first time. We’re also fairly certain nobody has ever landed a helicopter on a Skoda on primetime television.

Let us know your thoughts below as usual, TopGear.commers. But before you put finger to keyboard, here’s some extra action to enjoy from behind the scenes at this week’s show.

First up, the three presenters give their thoughts on the new series, the new Stig, the weather, and rather poignantly, James’ recently deceased cat.


And here’s a brief meeting with the two men from the Skoda Yeti ‘tattoo’ test. Brace yourself for a glimpse at the results…


We’ll have more videos for you throughout the week including Richard’s first ever appearance at the morning meeting for the crew, and more from the board-topping John Bishop, so look out for those. In the meantime, you can let us know what you thought of the series opener in the handy space below…
