The TG Nan Prix
Four of Britain’s least expensive cars. One Stig. No optional extras. Will any survive?

Hyundai time. Stig straps into the i10. Come on, you beautiful, terrifying creature. Crush the Twingo's lap time. Prove the i10 is the greatest car in the world. He's giving it his best shot. Three corners in and the i10 looks fast. No, ‘fast' isn't the description I'm looking for. ‘About to explode in a tiny fireball of death'. That's the one.
Across the line, and... Stig has had enough. He screeches to a halt and stomps from the car, slamming the door behind him with a tinny thud and stalking off. The time? Well, that's not important, is it? Oh, OK. The i10 has clocked a shambolic 1:06.8. Last place.
