I think that clarkson, hammond and may should have a crack at stock car racing for one of their challenges. 650bhp custom built cars and full contact racing and all in the uk, i think it would make a great spectacle. If you dont know what stock car racing check out the link its definately worth a look!!!

What you are showing us is referred to as several things, but stock car is certainly not one of them. I guess the closest thing wold be Outlaw racing (http://www.worldofoutlawsracing.com) and those cars look like this:

You might also see similar cars in USAC racing like these:

these are USAC midgets:

this is a USAC sprint car:

and there a few other variations on that theme as well, just thought I would let you know!

By the way, I think it would be quite cool. JC did race the legends cars in the "Stars in Fast Cars" show, and they are kind of similar, but not really.

They should do some rally-cross and build the cars themselfs! :D Or if they are on a tight budget they could go to sweden and do some "folkracing"

I don't think the BBC would go for full contact racing - especially in those midget or sprint cars. Those things crash and burn more than me at a speed dating service.

That would be good, i mean the lawnmover racing. The stock car racing is not that interesting in my humble opinion.
