Celebrity Laps:

Series 1 - 7

Current | Series 15 - 19 | Series 8 - 14


For seasons 1-7, our reasonably priced car was the majestic Suzuki Liana. It lapped our test track more than 1600 times, got through countless tyres and nearly sent Lionel Richie to meet his maker.

Well, it may be gone but it's not forgotten. Here you'll find the complete list of lap times for every celebrity who's ever dared to strap themselves into the little Liana.
