I downloaded it some months ago sometime after the episode was broadcast on a pay channel.  I wonder if Tim's car really broke down or was it another of the stunts.

There was a clunk when it stopped-so is wxpwct something really snapped. 

I did wonder what it was though...it will just encourage the Lots of t.. brigade.

I heard something, but Tim did not appear too worried. Did see a report of that esprit seen on a recovery truck.

The S1 looked stunning in the episode.  Regarding the Turbo Esprit braking down, I thought just typical. 

Maybe Tim should have less money on fancy new upholstery and more on keeping his car running properly.

Isn't that an older episode? I recall the scene with Tim's Turbo Esprit breaking down after impressing on the track.

I think he said in a recent special that he had sold it on? A shame...

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Interesting how they usually make a thing out of redoing the upholstery with a comedy trip to a trimmers - but they didn’t in this ep. I suspect they baulked at the 15k cost for a tartan interior! And decided to just not go there.

Series 8 Episode 3 first aired March 2020 according to IMDB.

So last week was the first time on freeview/free to air.

Yes. It was on last year and much discussion then took place about the digital dash.
