Join Top Gear team Matt LeBlanc and Chris Harris as they head into the Californian woods to test some amazing off-road toys such as dune buggies, dirt bikes and even personal tanks – and hunt for Big Foot.
Rory Reid invents the sport of reverse camera racing, while Chris puts the new McLaren 720S to the test to see if it’ll match up to its brother, the McLaren P1. Real race transponders were used in order to gain accurate lap times during this segment while the track temperature later in the day rose to a sweltering 37 degrees! All in a day’s work for the Top Gear team, this week they are joined in-studio by guest, comedian Lee Mack.
A few years back, Chris Harris was the first journalist to bring together, on a single racetrack, the three fastest hypercars of the modern era: of McLaren P1, LaFerrari and Porsche 918. That track, specifically, was Portimão, on Portugal’s Algarve coast. The fastest of the trio, in Harris’s annoyingly able mitts, was the McLaren.
