Top Gear’s New Power Lap Leader

As most of you may know (and if you didn’t, now you do), Top Gear officially returned to BBC2 for their new season on Sunday night. Marking it’s return was the return of another new Stig who straight away put a new leader on the Power Lap board, the V8 Arial Atom. Completing the course in a time of 1:15.2, 1.7s faster than the previous fastest car, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. You need huge cojones to get the most out of it though. With 373kw in a 550kg car you can actually see it snaking on the straight at high speed as it tries to put the power down.

I can’t wait till March when I’ll be making the trip up to Kyalami to see them live again :), until then I’ll have to make do with their new season. The guys are back & they are back at their best… I just hope they keep Tiff around for a while
