    Diesel Astra mk5 on Top Gear

    Well, some of us officially have a Lambo/Fezza/Maserati beater with our humble diesel Astras!
    Not sure what engine that one had (presume it was the 150PS one) but it did a damn fine lap!

    Ya gotta love the Stig, makes any car move. Love the fact that the Maserati's "SS" badge was bought at a later date and stuck on!! And when Hammond and Clarkson pushed that Modeo back a bit for the parking task rofl

    My Dad had one of those Ferraris in the 80s (308GT4) in black.

    Nice engine but it broke down almost daily!

    Mazzer was gorgeous to look at, not so nice to run!

    Next week will be good. There's a fair bit in the magazine about next week's show, looks like one to watch.

    So how does that 1.35 time of the Stig's compare to other lap times at castle comb....

    Does that time beat many an amateur round that track
