A victorious May discovered his wedding cake had toppled over, while Hammond drove so violently his car fell out of the lorry.
After fixing his brakes, Clarkson arrived last with his trailer on fire. The next challenge featured the lorries speed limiters removed, in a race around the two-mile bowl of Millbrook to see which was fastest; Hammond won with his lightweight ERF hitting 90 miles an hour.
The fourth test had each presenter attempting to perform a hill start with their vehicles, and to encourage them, prized possessions were placed behind each of their lorries.
Jeremy, with his drum kit placed behind his lorry, was successful as his vehicle had a crawler gear, although May and Hammond promptly ran over and smashed the drum kit.
Oliver, Hammond's restored Opel Kadett from the Botswana adventure , was placed behind his lorry and he eventually forfeited rather than risk crushing it.
May's grand piano was smashed when he failed to prevent his lorry from rolling backwards, although the production crew had already damaged it while positioning it.
The final challenge, for speed, braking, and toughness had each presenter driving their vehicles through an obstacle at 56 miles an hour, and the winner going the shortest distance after hitting it.
Hammond managed to stop his lorry in a shorter distance after driving through a mobile home than May did after driving through a structure built out of six hundred water coolers.
Clarkson travelled the shortest distance, but was injured after driving his lorry through a brick wall. Each of the presenters complained that they had not received the best obstacle.
At the end, the "hopelessly complicated" scores were tallied, and May was declared the winner. However, due to the car prices and the money they were given, the task was completed using cheap motorbikes.
The goal was essentially to do in eight days what the Americans failed to do in the ten years of the Vietnam War.
As in previous challenges, the producers provided a replacement vehicle to any presenter whose vehicle broke down, in this challenge a Honda minibike decorated in a stars and Stripes livery with Born in the USA by Bruce Springsteen playing on an iPod redubbed with The Star-Spangled Banner in some versions , causing much distress to the presenters due to the Vietnam War with America.
Upon reaching Ha Long, the presenters were given the task of modifying their bikes to reach a floating bar. Clarkson emerged victorious by reaching the bar first.
Clarkson bought a Volvo estate, Hammond a Hyundai Scoupe and May a Volkswagen Golf Mk III. They were then given a series of challenges, including driving across a field after a rave , parking cars at night, and an obstacle course in which each presenter had to drive round the course and hit as many of the obstacles as they could.
Clarkson bought a Porsche , May bought a Ford Capri but switched to the Morris Marina backup car after the Ford broke down and Hammond bought a Nissan ZX.
They faced numerous challenges including trying to beat a 1-minute, May ended up destroying another one of his pianos.
As a finale, they participated in an Andros Trophy ice race which included F1 driver Olivier Panis against heavily modified hatchbacks, ultimately being lapped several times on one occasion, Panis referred to the Marina as "a shitbox".
May emerged victorious mainly due to Hammond and Clarkson duelling throughout the race, in the Morris Marina, which had a piano dropped on it in the end.
They were then told to go to Mallorca for a rally, with two challenges spread over two days. They were also introduced to their co-drivers by the producers.
Clarkson was given the head of Balaeric Rallying Club, who spoke no English. Hammond was assigned Brian Wheeler, a sarcastic dwarf mechanic.
May was given glamour model and Page 3 girl Madison Welch. Upon arriving in Mallorca, the presenters discovered that they were almost two days late for the rally, which was a five-day event, and thus had no chance of winning.
Clarkson's malfunctioning gauges made calculating his speed difficult, May had to cope with Welch's initial lack of interest and navigating experience, and Hammond's Lanchester proved incredibly unreliable, breaking down several times per stage and overheating constantly.
While Clarkson was in the lead heading into the final day, May posted the most consistent lap times at the regularity track day and inched out Clarkson in the final challenge.
After the challenge it was revealed that all three presenters liked their chosen cars so much they had bought them from the BBC.
The three presenters travelled 1, miles through the rainforests of Bolivia to the Pacific coast of Chile. Hammond bought a tan Toyota Land Cruiser , which had been converted into a soft top convertible by a previous owner.
Despite the car's reputation for durability, it turned out to be the most unreliable car, suffering multiple drivetrain and suspension breakdowns right from the start.
It was damaged beyond repair on the sand-dune descent. Hammond nicknamed his Land Cruiser "Donkey. However, when he showed his co-presenters under the bonnet, May noted it had carburettors, making it the older 3.
Overall Clarkson's Range Rover turned out to be the most reliable, despite the car's reputation otherwise. May bought a red although ".. Despite this, May made no modifications, and it had the least breakdowns.
One disadvantage of the Suzuki was its open differentials, which until fixed made it "3-wheel drive" Winner: Clarkson. May bought a Mercedes-Benz E 2.
Challenges included determining their cars' top speed on an unregulated autobahn , interior space by carrying a German Oompah band , and an ADAC evaluation of the cars.
The BMW initially performed well until it came last in the evaluation test, revealing badly repaired accident damage. Finally, the presenters went to a circuit, where the cars were lapped by the Stig's German cousin.
In the studio there were the results of two more unbroadcast challenges: points for each viewing of a track day video uploaded to YouTube, and an economy run.
Bemoaning the fact that campervans are either the huge American style motor homes unsuitable for European roads or the tiny and cramped European models, the presenters were challenged to construct inexpensive campervans that would be comfortable to sleep in yet manageable on narrow twisting European roads.
They had to have a sleeping area, a toilet and a cooking area. May attached a roofbox with a sleeping bag on top of a Lotus Excel and Hammond constructed a collapsible cottage on the back of a Land Rover Challenges included driving to a camp ground in Polzeath , Cornwall , changing into a wet suit inside the campervan, sleeping, 'going to the bog ' in their campervans, and cooking a meal.
During the meal challenge, Richard set fire to his cottage. Back in the studio, Clarkson protested but all three presenters reluctantly came to the conclusion that although James had the fewest problems with his campervan the only one being space , all of their designs were rubbish.
No winner. The boys attempt to prove that old British sports cars never deserved to be killed off by the hot hatch. Jeremy buys a Jensen-Healey , James buys a TVR S2 and Richard buys a Lotus M Elan.
The trip involved going to the places where all their cars were 'born', beginning at the Lotus factory in Norfolk , then onto the Jensen factory in West Bromwich , before finishing at the TVR factory in Blackpool.
There was no winner, as the team said that all of their cars were the best. All winners. Series Sixteen, Episode Zero-Two .
The starting point was Iraq - which the three were unaware of until they landed. They were given flak jackets and helmets to get to their location.
There was also at least one armed guard travelling with the group. As has happened on previous challenges, a spare car was provided by the producers should any of the cars critically break down.
In this case it was an Opel Astra 1. During the challenge, May had a concussion in the middle of the desert, resulting in a trip to hospital.
He was discharged later in the episode and continued the journey. Upon reaching their final hotel, the three set out to buy gifts: Hammond bought a gold necklace of Jesus' face, May bought a bottle of Frankincense — in fact, a bottle of hotel shampoo — and Clarkson was unable to find any Myrrh, so bought a Nintendo DS.
They presented their gifts, and asked to see the child, which was revealed to be a baby Stig. Hammond's Fiat was voted the best by both Clarkson and May, to Hammond's obvious surprise.
However, they all buy the same car: a BMW i. Clarkson decided to turn the challenge into a test to see how different the three supposedly identical cars had become over time, so the trio ignored the producers' challenges and devised their own.
May won comfortably as his car proved to be in better mechanical condition than Clarkson's. This led to Clarkson claiming that speed is not everything and May disagreeing, in stark contrast to their usual opinions.
Next the cars were examined by a forensics team to test the condition of their interior. Clarkson's car contained crisps, leaves, and his own dried skin, which he claimed was not disgusting at all and lost no points.
May's car was in worse condition with nasal mucus, scabs and saliva costing him 30 points. Hammond again fared the worst with saliva, blood and pubic hairs, losing 30 points and, worst of all, faeces losing another 1, points.
Next, thieves attempted to steal all three cars: Clarkson and May's cars were still there after 20 minutes, but Hammond's was stolen almost immediately losing him yet another 1, points.
The trio were then required to lap the Top Gear Test Track in their cars, trying to match the Stig's time done in a modern BMW i.
Clarkson recorded the fastest time despite blowing his engine, followed by Hammond with May slowest. After that, the three cars were filled with helium and the presenters were required to sit in them to test for leaks.
Clarkson and May's voices went high and squeaky due to the gas, but Hammond's did not as it had leaked out, once again leading to a 1, point deduction.
The cars were then inspected to determine how much money was needed to restore them to showroom condition. Finally the presenters decided to form a stunt driving team in front of a live audience at the Essex County Fair this did not count towards the points challenge , they all collided almost immediately.
When the points were tallied up, May won easily due to his car being in the best condition so having the lowest restoration cost.
Clarkson narrowly beat Hammond to second place as his far higher restoration cost was marginally outweighed by Hammond's numerous thousand-point deductions.
This led Clarkson to conclude two things: 'all identical cars aren't necessarily identical' and 'Richard Hammond, who buys more used cars than any man alive, is useless at buying used cars'.
The forensics test is usually edited out on repeats. Back in the studio May criticised the two for eschewing the reliable, economical and practical Pixo, saying he was prepared "to bet his hair" that within two weeks one of the two cars would require expensive servicing or repairs.
Later in the series May was proved correct when Clarkson's Mercedes broke down and he had to spend several thousand pounds fixing the engine's injectors.
Jeremy bought a Jaguar XJS 4. As in previous challenges, a backup car was also present, a Austin Allegro. Challenges included bringing Western-themed goods with their cars and building a stall to promote them, A mountain rally and modifying their cars to be better able to tackle the dangerous mountain roads.
All Winners. The three criticise the sheer amount of money people have to spend just to play golf, and they claimed that you can invest less money in car racing, or in this case, rallycross.
To prove this, each of the presenters must find a cheap, race-worthy car and modify it so it can be race-ready. Clarkson bought a BMW i , Hammond bought a Citroen Saxo 1.
Hammond was the most successful of the three, finishing third in two heats and coming second in the final, ahead of Clarkson. Meanwhile, May was the least successful, finishing last in two heats and third in the 'loser's final'.
Clarkson bought a BMW i , May a Volvo R and Hammond a Subaru Impreza WRX. The Backup car was a Ford Scorpio , a car loathed by all three.
The starting point was a small town in Uganda. After travelling to Lake Victoria , generally considered to be the source of the Nile, the guys reasoned that as Victoria is fed by many other tributaries , one of those must be the true source.
After spending the night at an unhygienic hotel the guys decided to convert their cars into 'mobile homes'. Hammond installed a kitchen, Clarkson a cool box full of beer, and a toilet on the outside of his car.
May fitted a library at the front of his car, and a workshop complete with tools at the rear. All of them also installed some sort of bed.
After a long drive through Africa, which showed that Hammond made a clever choice with his all wheel drive Subaru, the guys had to cross a wide river, and built a raft to convey their cars.
All three made it across safely, but the producers lost the Scorpio after it fell off the raft and into the river. During the journey as each presenter's car suffered and broke down they stole bits from each others cars to carry on.
Eventually Hammond's car broke a wishbone and had to weld it back together in order to finish the challenge. Near the end of the challenge, the guys were informed that only one presenter could find the source and get his name in the history books, so each raced to where they suspected the source would be.
Despite Hammond making best progress thanks to his AWD , May was the first to find the true source of the Nile, making him the winner.
They were sent out to buy any hot hatchback from their youth - specifically the s. Challenges faced included a hill climb during the return trip, Hammond crashed his Nova, setting up a running joke throughout the challenge, a "supermarket sweep" gymkhana event through a closed supermarket, with Hammond again finishing on his side , and a drag race, in which Hammond critically damaged his car's engine after accidentally changing from second gear into first instead of third.
The last challenge involved the cars being chased by the "TGPD" Top Gear Police Department to see how long they could evade pursuit. Hammond was caught instantly due to his damaged engine, while both Clarkson and May had their cars destroyed after long drawn out pursuits.
In the end the presenters decided that as all their cars had won an individual event, all three were the winners.
The three presenters find themselves travelling out to Burma for a road trip to Thailand and the River Kwai, each taking with them a second-hand lorry that they will use to build a bridge over it - Clarkson buys an Isuzu TX that has an extensive stereo setup in the cab and a dumper truck layout in the back, Hammond purchases another Isuzu TX, but modified with extensive space for carrying large volume loads, while May acquires a Hino FB with a crane on the back.
Starting their journey in the country's old capital of Rangoon, they continue through Naypyidaw, before crossing into Thailand.
They are challenged with building a bridge across the River Kwai , then driving over it with their trucks, but realise when constructing the bridge that they are actually at the River Kok.
The men decide to improve ambulances. Initially, they modify a P45 Series 19, Episode 1 with a flashing beacon and a gurney which attaches to a rear-mounted hitch, but this fails when the gurney jackknifes and ejects the patient.
The producers then instruct the presenters to 'do it properly', and each buy an alternative to the standard ambulance used by the NHS a Mercedes Sprinter , with their choices being tested in a series of challenges.
Clarkson bought a Porsche Turbo , with the idea that the patient could be stowed under the all-glass hatchback; Hammond points out that the patient would bake in the tight, glass-enclosed space.
May bought a Ford Scorpio Cardinal hearse which was initially mocked by the others, despite May pointing out the potent Cosworth -designed V6 engine and traction control.
The trio are told to buy affordable classics and report with them to an old railway station in Buckinghamshire.
There, they are told they must live like classic car enthusiasts. Hammond arrives first in a MGB GT , a car that he believes is the most iconic British sports car.
Clarkson arrives next in a Fiat Spider which he admits is incredibly pretty but predicts it will go wrong all the time like all classic cars.
He also bemoans the fact that it is an American specification vehicle with 5-mph bumpers, raised ride height, and oversized aftermarket wheels, giving it poor handling.
Finally, May arrives in a Peugeot S Cabriolet which arrives already broken down. The trio are challenged to 'tinker' with their cars, with May simply fixing his so it works and adding continental yellow headlamps, Clarkson returning his to its original European specification and having an epiphany as he did so , while Hammond gave his MGB sporting credentials with a new exhaust, bucket seats and a sporty paint scheme.
Both cars suffer badly during the Japfest race, and are on the verge of breaking down - which Clarkson's eventually does leaving Hammond the winner by default.
Hammond expected to be part of the aerial display, and was made to take part in a Wing walking demonstration during which he spent most of the time screaming.
Challenges include a snow slope climbing test where Hammond failed to engage his 4WD , a game of tag with caravans hitched to their cars and featuring 'Leisure Stig' in a Kia Sportage, a acceleration and braking test at a muddy test area with 'Leisure Stig' setting the benchmark in the Sportage, which May failed to complete, and drove into a muddy pond, modifying their own cars to suit the lifestyle theme better and doing some 'leisure activity' at a nearby pond, rolling their cars down a steep cliff to test the car's robustness and safety, and a five-mile-long off-road race from a Yorkshire grouse moor to a conference and dinner held at Yorkshire's Broughton Hall, where the last to arrive had to do an after-dinner speech.
During the race, James was initially left far behind, but caught up later due to his finding a farm track that enabled him to overtake Clarkson and Hammond, who were bogged down.
Hammond eventually freed himself from the mud, and Clarkson, upset for not being able to climb the riverbank after fording a small river, had to cut the Frontera in half.
Eventually, Hammond had to deliver the after dinner speech, which didn't please the crowds. This challenge was the last completed by Clarkson, Hammond and May.
Loser: Hammond. The presenters raced against each other with Eddie boarding the Orient Express from London to Venice. On the way, Matt, Evans and Sabine were presented with a challenge: pick a Michelin star chef in Paris and allow them to prepare food to be presented at a chateau along the way.
Evans and Sabine found the challenge to be a relatively easy one, since their cars' cabin space allow the chef to prepare the food and the heat from their cars' engine and from the exhaust pipes in Evans' case allowed the food to be cooked along the way.
Matt, however, had to make several stops to allow his chef to prepare and cook the food, slowing down his progress. Sabine was declared winner of this challenge.
The episode follows presenters Jeremy Clarkson and James May in their successful attempt to be the first people to reach the position of the North Magnetic Pole in Canada in a motor vehicle.
They did not, however, reach the actual position of the North Magnetic Pole at the time. This was the first episode ever aired in HDTV.
At Resolute, Nunavut , Clarkson and Hammond announce their intention to travel from the small hamlet to the location of the magnetic north pole.
Hammond will travel via dog sled, aided by American explorer Matty McNair , while Clarkson and co-presenter James May attempt to beat them, travelling by motor vehicle, a feat that had not before been achieved.
Clarkson chooses to use a Toyota Hilux , modified for arctic conditions by Arctic Trucks , to prove that Arctic exploration can be quicker and more luxurious than via traditional methods.
Clarkson and May's modified Hilux, a second Hilux and a Toyota Land Cruiser for the film crew started in December Before departure, they spent a further two nights of survival training out on the sea ice in Canada.
Due to their constant tomfoolery, they were shown sobering images of the dangers of freezing weather and received a stark warning of the dangers they faced from polar explorer Ranulph Fiennes.
At on 25 April , both expeditions set out from Resolute towards Bathurst Island , an uninhabited island where they would be making camp for the first day.
Hammond and McNair moved at a steady pace during the initial days of their expedition, being stopped only by the presence of a polar bear following them, while Clarkson and May drew ahead by taking advantage of satellite navigation to ensure that their route took them over smooth ice.
Problems soon developed for the Hilux, though, when it nearly fell through thin ice and had to be rescued by the support team, resulting in the need to plot a longer but safer route.
Part 1 of Part 2 of Top Gear Burma Special Part 1 of 2. The team is crossing Burma to build a bridge over the River Kwai. The boys each purchase a second-hand lorries off the internet for a few hundred pounds Top Gear Burma Special Part 2 of 2.
Other criticism was on the reconstruction by Network Rail, with Anthony Smith, chief executive of the rail watchdog Passenger Focus , stating that "We need to raise awareness of the issue, but now is not the right time.
A repeat of the episode was due to be aired on 1 March , but because of another death on a level crossing that had occurred earlier that morning,  it was decided that the repeat would not be shown.
Instead, it was replaced with the "Best of Top Gear" episode that had been postponed by Hammond's crash. Following the broadcast of the Polar Special , the BBC Trust found that the scene in which both Jeremy Clarkson and James May were shown to be drinking a gin and tonic whilst driving through an ice field, could "glamorise the misuse of alcohol" and that it "was not editorially justified in the context of a family show pre-watershed ", despite the producer's claiming they were beyond the jurisdiction of drink driving laws, and Clarkson stating on the programme that he was not driving but "sailing" piloting a vehicle on frozen water as opposed to actual land.
In addition, Emily Armistead, a speaker of Greenpeace , heavily criticised the episode. In an article by the Daily Express , she condemned the feature as being "highly irresponsible", further adding that Top Gear had taken some of most polluting vehicles on the road to try to destroy the Arctic quicker than climate change was and that Clarkson "represented some climate-sceptic views and for someone to be on national television saying that is quite alarming.
