The one with Sabine does the Nurburgring in a van
Series 6, Episode 7 (2005)
Sabine Schmitt tries to beat Jezza’s Jaguar Nurburgring lap time in a Transit van, James takes on a marathon runner in a Fiat Panda, and we discover a TVR that won’t try to kill you.
Bit of a shock to find a TVR that doesn’t scare the living shit out of you, but JC still finds there’s much fun to be had in a 180mph car with no airbags, no traction control and no ABS.Watch Now

ChallengesPanda vs runner
Jeremy attempts to cover the marathon distance of 26 miles in rush-hour London driving Fiat’s cool city car. But can he manage it quicker than a proper marathon runner?

Super talented Sabine Schmitt tries to make good her promise that she could beat Jeremy’s previous Nurburgring S-type lap time in a van. Fitting way to celebrate the Transit’s birthday.Watch Now
