Van Challenge 1
Richard used this van when he was being a roady for 1960s band, The Who. He decidied on a Transit because it has been the king of vans for many years and this was a new one wich was better in "lot's of important and I am sure very interesting ways".
Because Clarkson new nothing about vans he played it safe and bought a Transit, it didn't hold out when there was Top Gear's Trained (and most useless) Car Thief. Jermey used gaffa tape to hold on his door on the replace the door challenge and on the last challenge it fell off. Jeremy also got only one reply to his "Man In A Van" letter.
Happy Birthday Ford Transit
On the Transit's birthday Sabine Schmitz tried to get the van round the Nurbugring quicker than Clarkson could in a Jag. But, despite coming close she couldn't manage it.
