Various celebrities compete at motoring challenges, including recreating movie stunts and racing modified armchairs.

This made for some great moments, including Car Skittles, a stunt where the celebs had to drive on to the back of a moving lorry, before letting them all drive a Ferrari - with a bathtub of water attached to the back which they weren't allowed to spill. They could be asked to race anything, from the aforementioned armchairs to Formula 1 cars. The winner got to throw the car of their choice at either a coconut shy or a giant target.

Dougie Anderson's hosting is a little unrestrained, but overall, the show just about avoids being classified as car-crash television.

Originally based on a one-off show made by BBC2's Top Gear team for Sport Relief 2004.
