£5,000 Lorry Challenge (Season 12, Episode 1)
The triplets purchase lorries (large commercial trucks) with a £5,000 budget in effort to determine how hard it is to be a truck driver. They failed terribly.
After a series of challenges Clarkson, Hammond and May must drive their respective trucks through large obstacles. Clarkson’s challenge was to drive his Renault Magnum lorry through a brick wall. He pulled it off and after driving through a brick wall at 56 mph he was his usual honest self:
“I emerged from my high speed head-on impact in what can only be described as screaming agony…I couldn’t walk. I couldn’t talk. I couldn’t think.” – Jeremy Clarkson
