How fat is your car?
Posted: 20 May 2010
In the absence of Dr Stiggian McKeith, and in order to best accentuate the merits of weight loss, we set about converting the TopGear Power Lap Test Track into the Patented TopGear Handling Circuit through the highly technical addition of a dozen cones scattered at strategic intervals.
As we drop the final cone into place, he appears, stalking out from behind a Nissen hut with a half a dozen stray cats in tow. If the Stig did expressions, this would be one of disdain. He eyes the 207, parked up on the start line, for a few seconds. Satisfied that it is, at least, a car, he slides into the driver's seat, guns the throttle and just... goes. Cats scatter. Blasting along the sopping track, he crunches the brakes into the first chicane and the hazard warnings flash on.
