Behind-the-scenes at this week’s filming

Regular viewers will have noticed by now that TopGear is filmed in a large, airy hangar somewhere near Guildford, UK. And mod cons like heating and insulation are, naturally, absent.

Which made this Wednesday's filming rather nippy. As in biblically freezing. Still, it didn't affect what was a great day (unless you're Jeremy - he had a cold, but he didn't really mention it at all).

Matt Le Blanc from Episodes and Friends fame popped down for a spin in the C-apostophe-D, the SLS Roadster was put through its paces on the track, and everyone got to see the presenters' cold weather gear for the first time since the Arctic trip.
