In episode 2 of the new 2014 Top Gear series, Richard Hammond visits Italy to test drive Alfa Romeo’s new lightweight, mid-engined sports car, the 4C.

Hamster is later joined at Lake Como by Jezza, and this being Top Gear, the inevitable race soon breaks out.

So what’s Jeremy chosen as his weapon of choice for this race to the opposite end of the lake? Surprisingly opting for a quad, Clarkson first appears totally outmatched. But as you’d imagine, he’s got a trick up his sleeve.

Also on the show, Jeremy travels to the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium to test the revolutionary 904 bhp McLaren P1, hybrid supercar. This one looks pretty amazing.

James meanwhile, visits the armed forces at Camp Bastion in Afghanistan, to witness the huge efforts going into the army’s biggest vehicle redeployment since World War Two.

Back at home, out on the track, Thor actor Tom Hiddleston is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.
