In episode four of all-new Top Gear TV, Chris Harris puts the new Honda Civic Type R to the test using his patented ‘B-Road-O-Matic 3000’, the perfect tool for turning your desolate airfield into a stretch of sinuous B-road. Or, what others would call ‘an old tractor and some pots of paint strapped to the corners’. Can the ‘FL5’ generation of the famous Japanese hot hatch survive?

And more importantly, how does it compare to hot hatches of old? To help with the latter, Freddie Flintoff pops up in Tolman’s restomod Peugeot 205 GTI as both go for a bit of a skid around in two very different takes on the £45k-ish hot hatch formula.

Elsewhere, Paddy sees if he can take four young motorsport enthusiasts and get them up to professional race standard, ready to drive a McLaren at Donington in the GT Cup… in just two months. Time to call in some help from F1 hotshoe Lando Norris.
