"Just take your time out there - take as long as you need, actually. Go slowly through the corners and once your wheel is pointing straight and you've got a bit of space, really put some pressure on. Floor it." Sound, Top Gear-accredited advice, you will agree.
Roger straps himself in and is quickly shown through the steering wheel. The T125 comes with a hand-operated clutch, so his getaway is a tad jumpy. But crucially - and we all agree - at least he didn't stall it. Unlike Jeremy. He tentatively makes his acquaintance with Hethel's test track and we all watch from the pit wall, as James lets us in on a little secret behind Roger's earlier drive in the Evora GT4.
