Top Gear: How to Demolish a House
The Top Gear team (Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May) are challenged to knock down a row of derelict houses in less time than it takes a team of demolition experts to do the same job. Time to take a trip to the Witham Army Disposal Yard to select their machines. The presenters quickly become interested in two tanks out the front of the yard. But as Jeremy starts to look inside for more machines, James and Richard become distracted with a bunch of old Land Rovers and helicopters. Jeremy leaves them alone and finds an enormous ATV called the Saxon. Jeremy says the Saxon has grenade launchers, 4WD, and a top speed of 30 m/h, with the speed being 60m/h if “the tires haven’t been shot through”. James meanwhile has found a Wilis Jeep but finds it difficult to explain his reasoning behind his choice because of the rattling of the car. As Jeremy pulls over in the Saxon he notices Hammond flying an attack helicopter. After getting the other two presenters back on task Jeremy, James, and Richard finally select their machines. Richard selects 434 Army Recovery Vehicle which he has chosen because it has armour protection, a crane, and weighs 15 tonnes so he can “use it as a battering ram”. James has chosen a CET which he has simply chosen because it has a bucket on the front. Elsewhere, Jeremy has chosen a United Nations ARMTRAC 400 which has a rotor on the front used to clear mines. After arguing over whose is the best Jeremy claims that Princess Diana used to have an ARMTRAC 400 much to the delight of the entire Top Gear crew.
