Top Gear goes to Les Arcs

27 June 2008 12:24


The Top Gear teamThe Top Gear team return to the Alps this weekend for the latest man vs machine challenge. Richard Hammond takes on top Speed Flyers François Bon and Antoine Montant (the Columbia world speed flyer champion 2007) in a race from Arc 1950 to the village of Villaroger.

VillarogerMay the best man win
But as anyone who's been to Les Arcs before will know, you can't drive from Arc 1950 to Villaroger, you have to travel 40km down to the valley and back up again to reach the little hamlet. So, will the driving power of Hammond in an Audi have a chance against the Speed Flyers who parapente and ski their way across the mountains?

Catch all the action this Sunday on BBC2 at 8pm, or if you miss the programme, you can watch it online (available for a week after broadcast) on the BBC iPlayer.

1. they can fly

regardless of the top gear shenanigans, these two can fly, heres a u-tube of them ski-gliding eiger n.f. it's worth the 2.23 taken out of your life to see it.
