You could see that one coming as Steve Curtis walked past a 225 on the back of a Cougar with a 2.3 over his shoulder!

James May's driving a Triumph Herald.... with a sailing rig!

I reckon if he had made the front of his Hi-Lux more water friendly he would have done a whole lot better. Plus if he'd have stuck some Tubes on it then he deifinitely would have succeeded

They wrecked a 2.3hp too, when the dampervan sunk! Was a good Top Gear though, that Hilux would not be alot more slippery in its underwater profile to plane!
