    Jeremy and The Stig race two Caterham 7s around a circuit in Scotland, but Jeremy needs to build his own car from scratch first. Richard and James road test the Ford S-max, the Mercedes B200 turbo and the Vauxhall Zafira VXR - three family cars that promise a bit of excitement. The star in the reasonably priced car is Steve Coogan.

    This will be the second program in a row where Top Gear test three "family cars". So those of you who are like me and have been wanting a bit more ol' school road testing - this looks promising!

          The doctor will have this on in the bag. I think it's going to be exaclty like 07x04 with the 10k supercars.

          I thought it was going to be all three against their partners/wives?

            Wonder what circuit it is. Probably Knockhill. It will suit caterhams. Crazy blind crests, apexes and vertical action.

            Here's some caterham action at Knockhill btw: http://video.google.co.uk/videoplay?...rham+knockhill

              I think the mpv test is where James and Richard have to bring some children, but James finds that a bit difficult because he hasn't got any.

                Meh ... is it me or aren't there many exciting cars? Coogan should be fun, though.

                  The Zafira VXR is exciting!

                    I'm actually most excited about Steve Coogan.

                      Me too!

                      In episode 1x04, it was clear to me that Coogan is a bit of a car nerd. He seems to work cars into his work at every opportunity. Who can forget Alan Partridge and his Rovers?

                            Hmm.... that's odd.

                            I remember in the series preview it said that Jeremy, Richard, and James would be building their own Caterham against Jeremy's Wife, Richard's Wife, and Jame's G/F yet it has no mention of them here. :/

                            Awww.... I was really hoping to see their counterparts, too.

                              Hammond did try to start up that new sport.... MPV racing...

                              wonder if this will be anything like that

                                  Yeah, same. I hope it's just a typo though..

                                    The episode summary was brief, there will hopefully be more news later on.

                                        Methinks the doctor will like the Caterhams - seems like those things love to be abused in the corners (as in: oversteer).
