Top Gear: Winter Olympics Special
8 August 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With the popularity of the motoring/car show, there have been quite a few specials coming from it as well. This special sees Top Gear hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May competing in a set of Olympic events on the snow and ice, at the slopes of Norway, in cars, of course. The events that stick out for me are Clarkson racing a speed (ice) skater in a Jaguar for three laps (not going very fast), Hammond in a bobsled racing May in a car on an almost equal length and locations tracks, and the launch of a Mini with powered rockets off a large ski slope. The Stig also appears jumping off this slope on a snow mobile to conclude the show. Very good!
