Fifth gear returns to Channel 5 tonight with a new format (it's now an hour long).

"The motoring show returns with an extended one-hour format. There's a test-drive for the new Aston Martin V8 Vantage, a Porsche takes on a Lotus on the racetrack, and Jason Plato finds out at first hand whether racing drivers make good fighter pilots.With Tiff Needell, Vicki Butler-Henderson and Tom Ford."

Could be the 240R? No other details I'm afraid.

WHAT!?!! That girl can't drive!

If you haven't seen (and stop reading if you don't want the surprise ruined) 5th Gear put a 911S against the 240R. The 911 won by 0.2 secs, with Vicky doing 52.8secs in the Exige on a dry Anglesey track!

If I recall correctly, that's pretty crap! Hyla was putting in 50sec laps in a std S2 Exige on a damp track. I've had my doubts about the 240R but it's just plain wrong to be beaten by a 911 on a twisty little circuit like that.
