Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May travel to Lillehammer, Norway for a special edition of the show, themed on the Winter Olympics.

The show consists of Winter Olympic sports that have been adapted to be played using motor cars, for example, car ice-hockey played with Suzuki Swifts; Jeremy Clarkson trying to drive a Jaguar XK around an ice rink faster than a speed skater and The Stig riding a snowmobile down a ski-jump. May and Clarkson compete against each other in a biathlon using an Audi Q7 and a Volvo XC90, with the loser having to eat yellow snow.

They also attempt to send a rocket-powered Mini down a ski-jump.


Top Gear Winter Olympics was viewed by 5 million people on its first showing,[1] and by 530,000 on a 5 January 2006 repeat.[2]
