Among some of the more notable moments were Car Skittles; a stunt where the guests had to drive on to the back of a moving lorry, before letting them all drive a Ferrari – with a bathtub of water attached to the back which they weren't allowed to spill. They were asked to race in a variety of motor-esque machines, from the aforementioned armchairs to Formula 1 cars.
The final round of each show, between the two top-ranking guests, features the use of the car cannon in attempts to hit various things.
The show originated as a one-off special of the popular BBC Two show, Top Gear, and was produced, as were a number of other television specials, in aid of charity Comic Relief. It was later turned into a series, presented by Dougie Anderson.
The pilot was presented by Top Gear presenters Richard Hammond and James May, and included that programme's third presenter, Jeremy Clarkson amongst the "stars" competing. The special featured a rare appearance on New Top Gear from Fifth Gear's Tiff Needell.
This episode recreated stunts from movies, and featured racing in modified armchairs and towing a bath full of water with a Ferrari. The two highest scorers after three rounds used the "Car Catapult" to hurl the car of their choice at giant coconuts.
