Earlier than we hear from the trio, right here’s slightly aperitif on the brand new episode: The boys decide their favorite road-going rally automobiles to journey throughout the distant north of ScandinaviaHammond in a Subaru Impreza WRX, Could in a Mitsubishi Evo VIII and Jezza in . . . er . . . an Audi RS 4.

Clarkson units his automobile on fireplace making an attempt to de-ice it, Could tows a one-legged skier, Hammond’s keys get encased in a block of iced urine. A number of chaos. A number of issues get damaged.

Enterprise as common, then. All mixed with jaw-dropping Nordic surroundings.

Could tried to minimize the tunnel smash at an outdated submarine base however I’m having none of it.

He escaped with a damaged rib and a bust lip — courtesy of a flying walkie-talkie — however solely as a result of he yanked the handbrake to keep away from a head-on crash.

In any other case it might have been a really completely different story.

Could, who nudged 78mph within the take a look at, stated: “It seems to be fairly dramatic however I used to be OK principally. Hammond has a lot better crashes

“It’s all very out of character, isn’t it? Perhaps it’s simply machismo, I didn’t assume I used to be responsible of that form of factor, however I used to be making an attempt to win.

“Clarkson’s was being a bore about his V8 so I assumed, I’m not going to let him have that.

“However I left my braking a bit late. I turned it sideways on the handbrake after I knew I used to be by no means going to cease. I form of thought, ‘I’m going to hit the factor, I higher hit it sideways. I can’t flip across the nook as a result of the crew are there and I don’t need to run over anyone’.”


Clarkson admitted: “It was an enormous accident. I noticed his head clobber the aspect of the B-pillar.

“ when Hammond has an accident, he retains going after the accident has begun. You’ll be able to roll down a highway the other way up and on fireplace for so long as you want, and it’s impossible you’ll get harm.

“What hurts you is coming to a sudden cease. And that’s what occurred to James. I’m not totally sure how briskly he hit that rock face, however I’m going to say 40 miles an hour.

“And from 40 miles an hour to a useless cease is extra harmful than rolling down a hill. I couldn’t imagine how briskly he was going.”

Hammond, in full p***-take mode, stated: “He’s develop into Captain Crash.

“I all the time get it off taxi drivers, ‘Ooh blimey, don’t crash this one’. Perhaps he can have that crown for a bit now. The crashing factor. I don’t thoughts. He’s greater than welcome.”

Could’s injured Evo wanted lots of TLC in an area workshop in an effort to proceed filming.

Could stated: “It was correctly binned. The engine had moved a number of inches to at least one aspect. The physique was twisted. The entrance wishbone was bent again on itself.


“The intercooler plumbing seemed like a trombone that had been by way of a mangle. Even the entrance brake calliper had cracked.

“It depressed me totally. I hate breaking issues, particularly automobiles.

“However we managed to get collectively sufficient bits or hammer sufficient bits straight to make it go once more — and it labored completely completely. Like a rally automobile ought to after a crash.”

However then got here accident No2, crashing by way of skinny ice on a frozen lake.

Clarkson stated: “This one wasn’t his fault. No means. It may have been any of us.

“Maybe we must always have stopped and checked with the authorities that the ice was thick sufficient to help us over all the space of the lake, however we didn’t have time for that.

“So, we simply bombed throughout it, and he discovered a skinny bit. It was fairly humorous watching it.”

“If it’s a right-hander, they flip sharply to the left simply earlier than they should flip proper, which upsets the steadiness of the automobile and causes a skid.

“And this present is porn. Location porn.

“As a result of, holy mom of Mary, northern Norway doesn’t half get its peaks out for the lads.”


HE says: “The thought was that we’d purchase three automobiles that had been created to go rallying, and immediately Richard shotgunned the Subaru Impreza, James bagged the Mitsubishi Evo, which is why I ended up with an Audi RS 4.
