But I still don't get what possessed him to burn the strip of paper with the GT2 laptime last time round.
I think it was that Clarkson would rather burn the time sheet rather than endure the possibility of giving the Hamster a reason to say that the Porsche's better around a track than the Lambos that he likes so much.
Think of it as his version of Hamster's "paper/cardboard eating" routine.
Anyway, I think that this episode beat the first in pretty much every way. Yes, I love the challenges/activities, but this particular one was better than the "lorryist" challenge.
The SIARPC... well, it's not often that the guest interests me.. and.. well, it was Will Young - the only reality TV "star" that still has a career. Whoop-de-doo.
It was great to see the guys trying to maintain a "factual" facade while setting off car alarms, having a red-light race and re-parking Hammond's car.
And they were "ambitious but successful", too!
Roll on the next episode!
