Team in a Surprisingly Slow Machine
Squash into the Topped Gear 4x4 and try to find your way around the winding course.
To add to the fun, the driver will be wearing the Swig’s favourite helmet; the one
with the fully blacked out visor! Or his 2nd favourite, the girly pink one.
Help! I can’t steer.
You may like to try driving our classic Mini. Or then again, after driving it a few
metres, you may wish you had made a better decision. The steering isn’t as precise

Oh well, you’ll probably be OK.
Teams with Tiny Machines
Teams of players are required to design and build a race track in double quick time,
using the extensive pack of materials provided.
They will then compete in the highly competitive inaugural race series.
Chuckle Buggy Swerve
Probably the most hilarious machine you will ever drive. Certainly, it’s the most

do is go faster.
You’ll never enjoy a major pile-up more. You and your team-mates will be expected
to drive flat out at your opponents coming the other way. There’s a fair risk of
whiplash, but we supply the contact details for personal injury lawyers
The Skool Wall
An animated discussion, usually after a glass or two of wine, about the merits of
various car models that we photographed in the car park a little earlier. We’ll try
not to embarrass any owners who may just be in the audience.
The Topped Gear Quiz
A petrolheads delight. Loads of questions on unbelievably obscure technical details,
plus a few for ordinary people, as well.
Jeremy usually scores 100%. He really should get out more.
