Top Gear Tonight: Road Trip to Ukraine, Zenvo ST1 & SIARPC is James BluntSun, 16 Feb 2014
Jeremy Clarkson with the Zenvo ST1 on tonight’s Top Gear
Top gear returns tonight for episode three, and we have a road trip by our intrepid trio as they take three small hatchbacks for an adventure on the Crimean Peninsula. Jeremy Clarkson takes the new VW up! city car, Richard Hammond has the Ford Fiesta and James May the Dacia Sander (what else could he have taken?) as the boys traverse one of the biggest countries in Europe (and encounter many lorries, it seems).
But this is Top Gear, so there has to be a twist.
The twist is, having arrived in Kiev, they’re challenged to drive in to the nuclear wasteland of Chernobyl, with nothing more than their little tin boxes for protection.
It would be hard to beat last week’s combination of the Alfa Romeo 4C and McLaren P1, but at least the effort’s being made (unlike episode one) with the bonkers, and very orange, Zenvo ST1, a 1086bhp garden shed supercar from Denmark.
Finally, posh boy and ex-army songsmith James Blunt makes a return to take on the Dunsfold track as this week’s star in a reasonably priced car as he attempts to hustle the Astra to a decent time.
Top Gear – Series 21, Episode 3 – is on BBC2 tonight at 8pm
