Behind the scenes of this week’s Top Gear

  1. The weekend is nearly upon us, which means it’s almost time for another Top Gear to stave off that Sunday evening feeling of Oh Lord, I’ve got to go to work tomorrow. And it looks like there’ll be more sensible consumer advice from Jeremy, James and Richard.

    Mr Slowly decides if the new, £300,000 London bus is a viable alternative to a hypercar - a process that involves some minor collisions and a track day. Like we say, sensible stuff.

    Plus, Richard tests the new Range Rover Sport, and Jeremy drives the Jaguar F-Type, followed by a celebration of all the great automotive things Britain builds.

    F1 hero Mark Webber is this week’s star in our reasonably priced car, which means dusting off the Suzuki Liana to see if he can best Lewis Hamilton’s 1:42.9 lap of the Top Gear test track.

    Tune in at 8pm, BBC Two and BBC Two HD to find out how he got on. Now click on for pictures from rehearsals of this week’s show.
