Episode Notes
There is an excellent segment where Ben Collins features to train military amputees competing in a rally event. Richard Hammond introduces him as "ex-Stig, special forces driving instructor and romantic novelist". After which Hammond proceeds to tease him by saying to his trainee not to say anything because he'll put it in a book. Which is reference to the book he wrote the previous year about being the Stig, which ended his regular term as the masked driver in the previous series.
