    A few details of what's on...

    It starts with an extraordinary race as Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May set out to discover what Top Gear might have been like 60 years ago. To this end, James grabs himself a gorgeous old Jaguar XK120 sports car while Richard chooses to torture himself on the brutal but rather fantastically named Vincent Black Shadow motorbike. Meanwhile, in an almost unprecedented move, Jeremy decides to take the train. But not just any old train; he's on the footplate of the Tornado, a brand new steam train built to the original blueprints used to create some of Britain's finest locomotives back in the heyday of the railways.

    Despite being old and a bit fat, Jeremy has to feed the boiler with a constant supply of coal, without which the whole train will grind to a halt. The challenge behind this race was simple - the first one to get from London to Edinburgh would be the winner - but what happens along the way adds up to one of Top Gear's most incredible and most epic races to date.

    Clarkson says that Stig is taking his helmet off tomorrow night and "finally shows the world his face"! Could this be true?!

    Surely they can't? Stiggy will then lose his appeal! They'll probably have some random person take off a helmet and then the real Stig will walk through.... At least I hope so anyway lol

    Unless this is the last series they'll do which is why they'll reveal who it is? But then again I'd assume they'll leave it till the last episode.. hmmmm

    Don't know, they'll probably do somethings daft like that. Knowing my gf though, when it comes to car related things she says it once and then it is never remembered again, she'll have to ask at work but by then it'd be too late - i'm interested to know if she/we're right though.

    I prefer it to be not known, the stig is THE STIG, revealing the identity kinds of defeats the point of the stig...

    I could tell you who 2 of the Stigs are.... but its not the point. There's always that element of 'Is it or isn't it?'.

    What jojo said is true. They're bound to have something lined up. We'll find out tonight I guess!

    Wow....I know this is a sad admission, but I loved that A1 Pacific Steam Engine.....wonderful bit of engineering...and built from scratch from drawings found in a skip ! Fantastic.....and I reckon it would have won if it was not slowed down by the local communter trains in Scotland...ho hum...

    The XK120 - beautiful car too !

    Vincent Black Shadow.....Don't think I would consider driving something that age 400 miles...but it was funny !

    Didn't think they'd reveal the real Stig. Was a good interview though I thought! Shame he's not allowed to drive the Liana. Would have been interesting to see what lap time he would have posted.

    Bugatti vs McLaren F1 race is next week. Should be good!

    yep, he's not the usual stig....he was just there to drive his car. Nice touch though

    There's loads of Stigs, various drivers from all over the place.

    Even I know Schimi isn't the Stig, but if ever there was going to be a racing driver who was going to be the Stig, Michael Schumacher isn't a bad choice is it?

    his is the only black fxx, the fxx should be disqualified according to tg rules for the track cars. Then hes suppose to have got lost on the track when the stig sets the std time on the track. Just a load of old toss imo. Shuey vs the stig then the stig would probally lose by 2 or more secs anyhow so unfair lap time. bit dissapointing tbh

    What a loada pish. It's Ben Collins. Obviously Ferrari didn't trust anyone else but Schumacher to drive the FXX round the track so TG thought they'd try and feed us this BS that he's the Stig
