Celebrity Laps

It's time for a new reasonably priced car and an array of celebrities to take it out on the track.

Cameron Diaz, Stig and Tom Cruise

Current | Series 8 - 14 | Series 1 - 7

Each week we invite a different famous person to our studio for a bit of a chat. But, before that, they have to complete a timed lap around our infamous test track and become a 'star in a reasonably priced car'.

For season 15 onwards we've retired the Chevrolet Lacetti and replaced it with the awesome Kia Cee'd which, believe it or not, is even more powerful.
