Roger Daltrey drives the Lotus T125
Top Gear witnesses rock legend defy poor vision to pilot Sunday’s 640bhp F1-spec monster…

I’m here to witness this leviathan of music design a special Lotus Evora that will be auctioned off for charity later this year; a one-off Evora with a design inspired by The Who, the proceeds of which will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust (of which Roger is a patron) and Childline. As a bonus, he got the keys to Lotus's T125. You know the car - it's the one Jeremy drove on Sunday's show. The car that made him wince and moan and shout profusely; the 640bhp F1-spec racer that left a semi-permanent neck-crick.
We're here to see if Roger Daltrey - who regularly holds thousands of concert fans in enthral - can pilot something seemingly built to cause immense intestinal irritation and sweaty palms.
