What with the visit of the man pictured above, all eyes were on the sky this Wednesday down at the Top Gear studio. The top spot on our leaderboard for F1 drivers looked in danger, if only it could stay dry.
Well, it did, although it was so windy that filming was regularly interrupted by what sounded like Thor banging his hammer in irritation against the studio door. That aside, it was a great day.
And how did Mr Finger do? You'll have to watch this Sunday 10 July, BBC2, 8pm to see...
