Motorhome Racing

Did anyone see the motorhome racing on Top Gear last night?

Really funny. Ripping out cabinets, sinks flying ... the whole structure collapsing around corners (restores one's confidence in panel vans )

And then a breathtaking moment when they exhibited the full monty with its own sporty car on board (Only 750 grand for that motorhome!).

Except they suggested ripping everything out (those taps...those sparkly floor tiles... )

so it would win in a race

I thought that the 'shoot out' between the BM' M5 Estate and the Merc AMG was awesome. The twating about in old campers is just 'padding' as far as I'm concerned.
